Business Intelligence (BI), if done right, is more than just a streamlined dashboard of your company’s key performance indicators (KPIs). You can segment BI into departmental reporting and individual staff performance. Equally important, you can get a quick glance of prospect and customer data points and engagement.
All this aggregated data is based on real-time, factual data points derived from your current internal business systems. Business Intelligence systems will reduce company costs and typically have a two to five year return on investment.
3 Critical Areas to Measure Business Value for ROI:
For decision makers that are allocating budget, justifying the investment in BI is critical. Business intelligence solutions can deliver extraordinary value by providing the necessary information to make strategic and tactical decisions in three major business areas:
Revenue: revenue, pricing, and profitability
Engagement: customer satisfaction, retention, and acquisition
Efficiency: operational efficiency and excellence
Each business will have a different ROI model to measure revenue, customer engagement and operational efficiency. Use this as a guideline and add what challenges and opportunities are on your company’s roadmap.
