Client-Facing Applications and Services – If you are a software business or a web agency, and you provide information, products or services to your clients, you can grow your business by adding valuable analytics to your existing products. With the right tools, this additional value can be achieved without a large investment of time or money. Adding analytics to products your clients already know and use can add crucial value to their work process and help them make fact-based decisions, all without having to learn a new software solution or application. Your business does not have to guess at customer needs or make changes rapidly to stay abreast of client requirements. Instead, clients can continue to use their favorite application with new features and capabilities that they will find valuable and critical to their own goals and objectives.
Team-Based Applications and Services – If you embed analytics into existing customer, supplier and stakeholder support applications, you can meet and exceed your customer expectations and add value to the experience with analytics that allow your team members to quickly and easily gather and analyze data to respond to customers, stakeholders and suppliers. This capability provides more transparency and ensures that the information you provide is, not only up-to-date but also insightful and analytical. Your team can give suppliers, customers and stakeholders critical insight into issues, orders, planning and forecasting. This data will become an important factor in their decision-making.
Customer and Client Outreach and Marketing – Think about how you engage prospective clients and customers. Your marketing and advertising campaigns are crucial to your success in that they educate and inform your prospective clients and existing customers on the real value of your products and services, and on your competitive benefits. By embedding BI tools within your enterprise applications, you can analyze data from across your organization and use that analysis to make decisions on pricing, product placement, marketing, advertising, shifting customer buying behavior, etc. When your message is clear and succinct, you are more likely to communicate the value of your products and services to potential customers and to remind your existing clients of the value of a sustained relationship.
