For most of our customers the instant visibility of data with reports and dashboards that can be produced instantly is a revelation. It helps to save hundreds of man hours previously spent manually collating, aggregating and distributing reports. There is huge benefit in information being available on request - rather than being published periodically and already out of date by the time it is read. Better decision making and much improved engagement of stakeholders at all levels can be the result.

I’ve got Power BI on my phone and I love it.
I can tell the CEO exactly what’s going on without having to chase anyone.
The information helps with challenging my directors, exposing inaccurate project forecasting and highlighting any skills shortfalls that need to be addressed.
