Standard Reports – These are predefined reports that the users access multiple times. As a result instead of recreating reports each time, templates are created. When the user desires, these report templates are filled with data.
Ad hoc reports - Ad hoc reports are reports which allow the users to query data without a structured format when needed. This is the opposite of standard reports.
Alerts – These are reports that are scheduled and distributed periodically or when a trigger condition occurs.
OLAP Analysis – This allows the business users to slice and dice multidimensional data.
One of our clients wanted a more dynamic representation of their business that allowed for both a new visual user interface and the capability to handle large amount of information that went into each report. The client also sought to cut down on the time-consuming process of creating a report in order to more effectively process commissions and pay its brokers.
After discussing with the end users to confirm the initial list of business requirements, Chateaux encouraged management to move away from their current Excel-based paradigm which was unable to handle the thousands of imported data points, to Flex Reporting and a redesigned data structure much better suited to working within their environment.
By re-architecting the underlying data warehouse to be better suited to the client's reporting needs, Chateaux technologists were able to create an interface that would allow users to develop their own reports on the fly for a variety of hierarchies and data sets. Chateaux also worked with end users to educate and train them on the new system and how to best utilize the new functionality.
With this solution in place the department saved the organization more than $150,000 in excess broker commissions. Flex Reporting was promoted throughout the organization as an example of the value of BI for increasing productivity and affecting the bottom line.
