The 3 Pillars of Business Impact –
Technical Expertise. Industry Experience. Business Savvy.

We believe successful Business Intelligence solutions absolutely require that your provider comes to the table with not only the technical expertise (and we have that), but also with experience in your industry and an understanding of how your business operates.

Business Impact works with hundreds of different platforms and tools, and literally thousands of variations – both custom and third-party – of those systems. We can work with pretty much anything you are currently running.

What’s more, we pride ourselves on staying current with the latest technology. For example, we offer a comprehensive solution in the Cloud, using a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, that provides significant power and value for small- to mid-sized companies. Business Impact has the technical expertise needed to consolidate your universe of data and provide best-in-class solutions.

Expertise

Industry

Business Impact does not believe in a universal solution when it comes to Business Intelligence, although any industry typically has common performance measures and benchmarks. We work with proven, industry-specific solutions in Business Intelligence. That enables us to use our specialized industry experience to build a Business Intelligence solution that can be modified to your business and implemented quickly.

Many of our solutions are available as pre-packaged, quick-start solutions that include a fully functional dimensional data warehouse, OLAP cubes and reports, support for sales, inventory, open orders, purchasing, general ledger and more. However, we are also able to provide custom products based on the business challenges faced by your industry and your specific company.

We have significant experience with industries that include:

  • Wineries
  • Food Manufacturing
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Convenience Stores and Retail
  • General Manufacturing

We are able to guide our clients to the solution that best fits their industry, their company’s needs and goals.

Expertise

Business

Before you can build Business Intelligence solutions, you have to understand business.

Our team has years of experience in all areas of business operation. We leverage that experience, ask the right questions, and get a full understanding of how your business measures itself.

We find new, meaningful ways for you to evaluate your KPIs

  • Sales
  • Finance/Accounting
  • Budgets
  • Inventory
  • Production
  • Shipments
  • Direct-to-Consumer

Data should not be siloed. It must be accessible to all functions in your enterprise. But not everyone wants to see data in the same way. Whether you are in finance, sales, manufacturing operations, supply chain or management, we make sure you are able to make an impact based on the data you need and how you need to see it.

For many companies “Crunching the numbers” has become more about the crunching than what the numbers actually mean. It’s an exercise that takes too long and involves too much effort. What else can you do with the time you’re not spending trying to “crunch the numbers.” How about…

  • Do deeper analysis on things that can create a competitive advantage.
  • Redirect sales efforts to be more effective.
  • Adjust production workload so your inventory is more in sync with your sales.

You can do all of these things and more. We get how you work. We share your vision of your marketplace.
