Transform Data into Insights That Drive Business Technology Improvements
As businesses start deploying new technologies, strategies and processes, it’s essential to have tools and procedures in place to measure their real impact. We offer two business intelligence products along with support in order to help our clients derive actionable insights on business performance. The first is Microsoft PowerBI, an incredibly open and flexible platform that can turn any data source into visualizations for easy viewing and reporting. The other is Kofax Insight, a process analytics and business intelligence platform used to measure operational efficiency and process effectiveness. These help business leaders get a handle on how particular processes are affecting customer metrics like satisfaction and retention, and measure capabilities of internal processes in order to identify bottlenecks and opportunities for automation and improvements.
A combination of these tools, along with our guidance, helps clients track and evaluate their business goals against business benchmarks and defined KPIs, the ROI of their business investments and understand where they should be focusing their time, resources and attention moving forward.

Technology We Use
Insights for Anything
Microsoft PowerBI is a flexible data visualization, analytics and reporting platform that can transform nearly any type of data into powerful insights for you and your team. It’s recognized as one of the best platforms in the business, being named a Gartner magic quadrant leader among analytics and business intelligence platforms.
With robust integration capabilities and data connectors with third-party sources, it’s easy to get data into the tool. As expected, all Microsoft products are natively integrated, meaning users can pull in data from Microsoft Azure, Business Central, Office 365, SharePoint, Excel and the Power Platform. Along with Microsoft products, there are hundreds of other data source options from other online programs like Salesforce, Google Analytics, Facebook or from txt/CSV files, SQL databases, and more.
With this product, users can:
- Get quick insights into their data with compelling data visualizations
- Dig deeper into data with interactive drill-down capabilities
- Embed the visualizations in web pages, apps or share as dashboards
- Integrate with Microsoft PowerApps and Flow to create automated workflows and business applications
- Create feature-rich reports that are easy to share across the organization and update in real-time
