The modern warehouse runs on data. Think of the systems you are using and the information each system is generating and collecting. Products scanned. Movement tracked. Every material used in the process noted. Each vendor communication recorded.
These systems often come with capabilities that allow you to create and view reports using data from that specific platform. These reports are usually descriptive and give you the information you need to react to a particular problem or trend. Since these reports are essentially pulling data from a silo, they can’t impact or add value to anything outside of what they are measuring.

Analytics with Microsoft Power BI
Smarter data analytics allows you to manage what you measure inside your warehouse while putting that data to work across your entire organization. Analytics applications, like Microsoft Power BI, surface data in an accessible way so your team can make better decisions using up-to-the-minute information.
Your warehouse teams, as well as business leaders throughout the organization, can interact with the data productively, rather than wasting time manipulating spreadsheets.
Armed with better data, you and your team can answer questions, make insightful predictions, and identify whitespace throughout your company.
With modern data visualization tools, like Microsoft Power BI, there’s never been an easier way to understand trends, patterns, and exceptions in your data. You can now shift resources from the job of creating and re-creating static reports regularly to an analytics leader who interprets the data and drives improvements.
Better data analytics isn’t a destination; it’s a journey that leads to the ever-increasing value gained over time. Useful data leads to better information. The more you can trust that data, the more you’ll be able to make smarter and better decisions as a data-driven organization.
