Summary: The DataSelf BI “consultant in a box” just got a lot smarter — the solution just added another 805 more reports and KPIs — for a total of 2016.
San Jose, March 25, 2009 — The DataSelf BI “consultant in a box” just got a lot smarter — because DataSelf customers just keep adapting the tool, and DataSelf keeps listening. The solution just added another 805 more reports and KPIs — for a total of 2016.
“Each one of these reports and KPIs is based on a customer’s innovation,” says DataSelf CEO Joni Girardi. “Our set of pre-defined KPIs often inspires our clients. — They wonder what else can be measured and that creativity often feeds right back to our KPI package. It’s a win-win, snowball effect.” says Girardi.
A KPI may be as simple as a count of outstanding orders or as complex as the calculation of financial ratios. “While every business does things a little bit differently,” says Girardi, “it’s usually easier to adapt existing KPIs — and having over 2,000 available is an unheard-of starting point.”
One sales manager, for example, used several out-of-the-box KPIs to inspire his own set. With his new KPIs, he quickly spotted several customers who placed many small and scattered orders. He was then able to work with them to improve efficiency and reduce expense.
A different company detected dissatisfaction with a new product. The company used a new KPI to find customers who bought products in the last few months but did not repeat the orders. The company made prompt inquiries and adjustments and actually reinforced the relationships.
On average, managers can tackle 70% or more of their reporting needs without IT support and usually faster than they can eat a donut. — That’s what DataSelf calls “The Donut Challenge”.
