We really do.
When we were creating our award-winning business intelligence tool, we agreed it should be built on two fundamental principles.
First, to give users instant access to all of their data, sliced, diced, filtered, sorted in any way they wanted. And second, to give users the “intelligence” to make better decisions in real time. You’ll be glad to know we did it.
OK, so just what is business intelligence?
Your business is overflowing with an ever-increasing mass of information. Sales revenue figures, prices, profit margins, forecasts, budgets, inventory, the list goes on and on. Itâ€™s the same story in a surprisingly large number of businesses; information is buried deep in ERP systems and only the IT team knows how to extract it. Then, once you have the data, it takes a long time to turn it into something people can understand. Not only that, it isnâ€™t kept up to date. So, when you need some solid facts to help you make a decision, not only is it practically impossible to find the data youâ€™re looking for, you donâ€™t even know if you can trust it when you finally pin it down.
And thatâ€™s where business intelligence software comes in. It gives you the information you need in a format you can understand. Whatâ€™s more, you donâ€™t have to be an IT expert to analyse this data.
And the beauty of Phocas is that we donâ€™t present the information to you in a fixed set of templates, reports or dashboards that tell you what we think you need to know (which is what some of our competitors do). The problem with that is that you end up with a lot of interesting reports that arenâ€™t actually very useful. No. With Phocas, you ask the questions and weâ€™ll give you the answers youâ€™re looking for in moments; whether youâ€™re using a PC, smartphone or tablet. And if that prompts you to ask another question and then another, weâ€™ll be with you every step of the way as you follow your train of thought. Even if youâ€™re a self-confessed technophobe, you wonâ€™t need to get IT involved to create the analysis youâ€™re looking for. Itâ€™s that easy.
The result is a true picture of your business â€“ and of the business opportunities you might otherwise have missed.
I am not technical. Will I be able to use Phocas?
Yes. Phocas was designed for non-technical users. Its simplicity is one of our key features. Now you can have business intelligence at your fingertips â€“ and you wonâ€™t have to keep pestering IT.
