Mobile Analytics Features Are Key to Productivity and Decision-Making!
If you are considering implementing an analytics package, here are some statistics you may find interesting. When surveyed, users of BI tools and augmented analytics reported the following:
- More than 65% of users reported that analytics improved efficiency and productivity.
- More than 58% reported that analytics helped them make more effective decisions, more quickly.
- More than 53% reported that using analytics leads to better financial performance.
One of the most important factors in implementing analytics today is to choose an augmented analytics solution that support your business users with self-serve tools that are easy to use and will encourage user adoption. Beyond that, you must select a solution that includes mobile analytics, so your users can benefit from these tools while in the office, on the road, in an airport, at a client or supplier office, or working from home.
‘If your team is to be as productive as possible, it must have the tools it needs – especially in a mobile environment like the one we are all working in today!’
To illustrate one such example of the importance of providing mobile BI for your users, consider this business use case:
Imagine you are visiting a distributor to discuss past and current sales. Your goal is to illustrate to the distributor that they are selling your product quickly and, because they are purchasing in small batches frequently, they are paying more for the product and losing out on sales because they have outstripped their inventory. In this way, you hope to increase the distributor order and lock it in as a large monthly order to increase sales and dependability of revenue.
With a mobile app, you have access to distributor sales for the past year, receivables, payments, rush orders, etc. You can analyze the trends to show the distributor that they are ordering more often and experiencing delays in shipments to their customers when they have to wait for supply. Using simple natural language processing (NLP) queries, you can ask questions about sales and shipments in a particular location of the country, and you can share reports with the distributor staff and management, so they can review the data using fact-based analysis, and update their ordering strategy, improve their customer satisfaction and revenue and perhaps even see and decide on bundled products to capitalize on the market.
Whether your users are trying to solve a problem, gain insight into a situation for a customer, supplier or team member, or gather and analyze data for a report or an approval, these tasks can’t wait. If your team is to be as productive as possible, it must have the tools it needs – especially in a mobile environment like the one we are all working in today!
