Do you have an overview of the performance of all your company’s branches? Can you evaluate the reasons for your customers’ complaints and use them to initiate optimization measures? Can you visualize key performance indicators (e.g. development of market share, sales, sentiment, competition) broken down by region and time period and thus monitor the development of your company at any time?
No? Then your data is currently scattered in various sources and you lack an overview. Making well-founded decisions is hardly possible or costs an enormous amount of time. After all, you first have to painstakingly bring all the data together in order to then evaluate it. And don’t forget that you are often dealing with business-critical decisions that are very important for the future development of your company.
The interactive business intelligence tool for data visualization Microsoft Power BI enables you to keep an eye on all important developments at all times, as you establish connections with numerous data sources and present your company data with live dashboards and reports. In particular, by bringing together data from a wide variety of sources, the inefficiencies of isolated data sets are resolved. You can also share your insights with colleagues and supervisors to take collaborative, targeted action.
If you’re looking for specific data, Microsoft Power BI lets you ask a question in natural language and the software suggests visualizations. This way, you can quickly and easily present your favorite data in a clear way. Besides, you’ll be able to determine forecasts and trends from your existing data, to proactively determine the company’s development. In order to be up to date at all times, Microsoft Power BI also offers the option of conveniently accessing the business intelligence tool from any mobile device.
We sell Microsoft Power BI in two versions: Microsoft Power BI Pro and Microsoft Power BI Premium. You can find a comparison of the packages, the prices as well as links to our store on the prices page.
Power BI can be used for a wide variety of scenarios. We have put together some use cases for you.
Evaluation with Power BI
As a managing director, it is certainly important to you to increase your market share and to grow as a company. With the help of Power BI, you can align your Dynamics 365 Business Central or Dynamics NAV dashboard in such a way that your favorite success-critical key figures (e.g. development of market share, sales, mood, competition) are visualized broken down by region and period.
In the standard version of Dynamics 365 Business Central or Dynamics NAV, it is not possible to make cross-tenant evaluations – for example, across several branch offices.
With the help of Microsoft Power BI this problem can be solved without programming in Dynamics NAV or Dynamics 365 Business Central. Finally, in Power BI – unlike the standard – data of all clients can be merged and a company-wide evaluation can be made. For example, orders on hand or sales can be evaluated according to postcodes and displayed using a variety of display options (e.g. table, map).
Microsoft Power BI makes the causes of problems quickly visible – for example when analyzing the reasons for complaints. It may turn out that the complaint rate for a product is particularly high compared to other products – because the article was used more than average or because the material is prone to errors?
Power BI makes it easy for you to find out – even where the article in question is installed.
As a human resources manager, it will be close to your heart to track key performance indicators that are critical to success. Use Power BI to generate analyzes – for example, of the number of new hires compared to the previous year, by gender, by age or by percentage development.
As a warehouse manager, you certainly want to monitor the most important warehouse key figures. Generate reports on your spend, supplier discount usage by region, city, month or category.
This allows you to answer questions such as:
In addition, Microsoft Power BI can be used for excellent sales management. For example, a map of Germany with information on target and actual sales figures in the dashboard could be integrated into Dynamics 365 Business Central or Microsoft Teams for every sales person in a company. In this way, they can see at any time when they are performing and how, and where they still need to take action.
Of course, settings such as visibility, i.e. whether each salesperson is also allowed to see how his colleagues are performing or only see his figures, can be controlled.
Multiple data sources
You can link data from different tables (e.g. stock value and item price), prepare them visually and export them to Excel. You are not restricted to one application, but can aggregate data from a wide variety of applications (e.g. Dynamics 365 applications).

Identifying the need for action
By taking a regular look at your dashboards, you can keep an eye on the development of your company or department and immediately see where action is needed. A frequent area of usage is sales control or the monitoring of open orders or deliveries. Thus, desired data can be controlled centrally and continuously.
Well-founded decisions or decision papers
Enable everyone in your organization to make compelling operational and strategic decisions based on networked and robust real-time data. You can also convince third parties simply by using data-supported insights. Present your power BI analyses and inform customers and colleagues with meaningful and impressive dashboards.
Create comprehensive tables, interactive charts and easily incorporate mapping services.
Sharing of visualizations
Share visualizations and your findings with your team, other departments or the management.
Fewer manual activities
