Business Intelligence Software and Tools for Distributors

Accolent ERP delivers powerful Business Intelligence software for distributors through an integration with Phocas Software, a best-in-class, Cloud-based, BI solution. Through this integration, you will have access to all the tools you need to allow you to run real-time data analyses on your Accolent ERP data. This real-time data analysis can help you gain insights into your business, visualize performance and find trends.

Why You Need Business Intelligence Software

Business Intelligence software starts with your business insights and adds to this the data analytics tools that let you explore, analyze and visualize your business data. As a result, you will be able to make better data-driven decisions and improve performance.

You can create your own reports in Accolent ERP to solve business issues, so why do you need Business Intelligence software? Looking at reports can certainly help you identify trends and uncover anomalies. But often you need to ask specific questions of the data before you can define or create the report that will give you the answers you need. This is where Business Intelligence software comes in. Using Business Intelligence software you can follow your train of thought to uncover data relationships that you may have been unaware of at the outset. If properly implemented, Business Intelligence software can help lead you to insights that can create business opportunities.

For example, BI could help you to better understand what your customers are buying or not buying, and you could use this to increase sales and profits. Another common use of BI is to optimize business processes and track these through to performance. You can also use BI to troubleshoot issues or problems and monitor trends. Often until you start using BI you don’t even realize the opportunities you were missing.
