Sage Enterprise Intelligence is a Business Intelligence solution that integrates directly with Sage300cloud. This very statement raises several questions. What is Business Intelligence (BI)? Do I need a Business Intelligence solution? And if so, is Sage Enterprise Intelligence (SEI) right for my company?
Business Intelligence is defined as a technology-driven process for both analyzing your data and presenting that data as actionable information to help executives, managers and other corporate end users make informed business decisions. In short, BI helps you understand your business trends and provides insight into what is happening within the company. This information can then be used to make decisions and chart your company’s next direction. A BI solution can play a key role in improving business management, making operations more efficient and encouraging business growth. If this is a goal for your company, then Yes! You need a BI solution! Many people are making Excel their BI solution and doing time-consuming manual spreadsheets and analysis. Sage Enterprise Intelligence takes all the manual work out of analyzing data – and it does so much more.
SEI integrates directly with Sage300cloud. However, if you have multiple systems in place, SEI connects to ALL of your many data sources. It gathers your data in one single place, no matter the source.
