Why Not Know?
Making smart choices for your business requires timely, accurate and complete information delivered to the point of decision. The more you and your team know, the more effectively you can manage your business,.
Business Intelligence (BI) solutions from FMT use proven technology, systems, and business process insights to improve decision making. Why not know your business better?
Connect and Transform Business Information
A Business Intelligence solution from FMT takes large amounts of data from across your supply chain, organizes it, and presents it to your team in a way that works to build value and transform your business.
Effective BI is not one single tool, but a variety of resources that all collect, condition, and organize information from the systems you use to run your business. To make better use of the information you have available, activate the latest innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enable Machine Learning capabilities from Microsoft, Salesforce, NetSuite, or a combination of all three.
You may choose to focus on improving visibility and creating association between a variety of your current systems using Microsoft Power Apps including Microsoft Power BI to increase agility across your supply chain and help your team make highly effective decisions from the warehouse, the factory floor, the virtual office or the corner office.
UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR DATA
Microsoft's self-service business analytics platform Power BI grants you visibility into your business and keeps that data secure. Our team of experts can help chart your course to fully utilizing your data through prebuilt reports, a prebuilt dashboard, and guided training so you can scale and modify on your own! Listen to your data and make confident decisions with Power BI.
Impact Your Future with Business Intelligence
Measure & Report on what Matters and Make it Better
If you can’t measure it, you can’t make it better. Many business intelligence tools are used in measurement applications. They can take input data from sensors, CRM systems, web traffic, and more to measure KPIs. Report generation is a standard application of business intelligence software.
BI systems can deliver regular reports, automate critical analytic tasks, populate real-time dashboards, and eliminate insecure and inaccurate spreadsheets and word-processing programs. Once you have clear and reliable visibility into your business, you can work to move in an informed direction.
Ask Questions, Don’t Question your Data
By providing accurate, timely, and complete information from across your business supply chain, users have access to ERP reporting, data from your Manufacturing Execution System (MES), and detail from your factory floor or warehouse via your Warehouse Management System (WMS).
With a modern BI solution from FMT consolidating and publishing that information, your users get consistently reliable answers to their questions.
FMT may use a combination of leading tools to easily connect application data to include inventory tracking, 3PL, fulfillment, and ecommerce.
Options for Business Performance Management (BPM)
Create a data-centric culture in which people at every level of your organization can make confident decisions using up-to-the-minute analytics. BPM solutions from FMT reach across the supply chain to drive efficiencies in operational performance which helps modern manufacturing and distribution organizations compete and drive new opportunities and revenue streams.
By incorporating and organizing both historical and new information, BI solutions from FMT support both strategic and tactical decision making. And, ultimately, by increasing visibility into how the business performs — including information from your factory floor or warehouse via your Warehouse Management System (WMS) — BI helps users across the organization find and fix business problems before they impact the bottom line.
See the Road Ahead with Data Visualization
We’ve all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. With data analysis, insight can come more quickly when users view data through a variety of visually compelling charts and graphs.
Using BI tools to transform numerical data into a visual or pictorial context helps users to understand and take action from information that would otherwise be too complex to interpret quickly. Data doesn’t help build the business if your team can’t find it or see connections at the point in time when a decision really matters.
A solid BI solution from FMT includes a strategy for data curation, documentation, analysis, and constant improvement.
Forecast, Plan, Repeat
Financial managers and executives in growth-focused organizations are looking to maximize decision-making capabilities for success in the expanding and highly competitive modern manufacturing marketplace. While highly robust planning applications should be part of progressive manufacturing strategies, BI solutions from FMT can both publish and consume information from these systems, and re-project it into models to inform future direction.
At the highest level of Business Intelligence, some companies have gone so far as to create a “Digital Twin” of key factories or distribution hubs. These digital twins replicate the physical assets, locations, systems, materials, processes, people, and devices that can be used to improve production, optimize inventory, and model different levels of production or consumption. In some cases a predictive model can bring previously unseen efficiencies into an already optimized production environment.
Protect Your Data in Motion and at Rest
Having exceptional access to your proprietary business data can be the difference between competitive success or financial failure. Too often, security takes a back seat to visibility. It should not be this way, and FMT will work with you to keep your BI data protected even when it’s exported outside your organization or to other formats such as Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF.
Use enhanced endpoint security, cloud protections, along with backup and recovery to extend Microsoft 365 classifications and governance policies to data available internally to your organization or published to partners or suppliers through Power BI.
Meet privacy and regulatory requirements with oversight of sensitive data consumption. Embed governance features to ensure proper data curation, provenance, and protection through user-friendly, minimally intrusive governance features.
Connectors, Adapters, Integrations, Oh My!
Business Intelligence solutions rely on connected data sources to deliver lasting value. Most systems come ready and optimized to take full advantage of a variety of integration (INTEG) platforms and solutions. FMT maintains certified professional resources skilled in implementing and optimizing the industry’s leading Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions from companies like Dell Boomi, Jitterbit, Celigo, and LogicBroker.
Using the best possible technologies, FMT clients can readily connect to hundreds of on-premises and cloud data sources such as Dynamics 365, Azure SQL Database, SPS Commerce, Salesforce, Excel, NetSuite, and SharePoint.
