We use business intelligence tools to help businesses get clarity from their data.
SMEtric’s tools can automatically extract, analyse and present your business data from various sources in beautiful dashboards, all in one place. The visual formats are easy to read, easy to share and accessible from anywhere, anytime. This enables businesses to be transformed with the opportunities uncovered and the ability to make better and more rapid decisions backed by data.
Signs you need a Business Intelligence Solution
We see many businesses that have a whole range of systems, each with separate reporting. When they want to understand what’s going on in their business, they dive into each system to press the Export to CSV or Excel button. Then they put it all together in one spreadsheet. It’s time consuming, prone to error, hard to share and hard to understand for team members who aren’t data literate, and often out-of-date by the time reports are put together.
SMEtric’s business intelligence solution can pull all their data together and present their reports all in one place using Microsoft Power BI embedded. The visual formats are easy to read and more easily enable businesses to turn their data into intelligent action. A picture is worth a thousand spreadsheets.
The latest Business Intelligence tools are much more affordable than the current tools available to corporates. This opens up opportunities for medium sized businesses to be transformed with the opportunities for business improvement to be uncovered and the ability to make better and more rapid decisions backed by data.
Reports all in one place
We use a data extraction tool to enable us to connect to your data sources or analytical platforms and extract real time data. No sources are out of limits and the possibilities for visualisation and distribution of your insights are endless. We can extract data from Xero, MYOB, Accredo, WorkflowMax, Unleashed, Cin7, EROAD, Google Analytics and loads more. Imagine having up-to-date reports from all of these systems, all in one place!

Digital marketers work with a number of data sources that are not connected such as Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Facebook, email and sales data. Creating reports is a challenge – downloading, cleaning and joining data sets from the various sources before even getting to the reporting.
In this example, we have tied together all the disconnected sources and presented them in one place, in an attractive and easy to use interface for our client. These reports can be tailored, easily shared with clients and . Marketing performance can now be monitored seamlessly, refreshed daily and it’s all in one place!
An import distribution company wanted better reporting over their current systems. Putting a business intelligence solution on top of their exiting systems enabled them to better exploit the value of the data buried in these systems. It also got it into one place.
The interactive report provides insight highlighting key customers, what they purchase, what products are the most profitable, and interactions the sales team have with key customers. This has lead to a deeper level of insight into market trends, providing a much more reliable foundation on which to forecast future demand and to analyse which products and which customers bring the best margins.
Benchmarking against other franchisees will reveal where franchisees are under performing when compared to the norm. They are then able to target assistance to help them to become more efficient, and ultimately, more profitable..
They can harness the creativity and insights that make the top performers outperform the rest. Then retrain everyone else to reach this level too. This benefits both the franchisor and the franchisee.
New technology can transform a school or PTE administrations’ ability to track their student’s attendance and performance – the key factors to success.
Under older technology systems it was difficult to share current up-to-date data in a way that anyone can use. Now, institutions are empowered to share data through Microsoft’s Power BI Dashboards.
Schools and PTEs use a number of different Student Management Systems. But under many of these older technology systems it is difficult to share current up-to-date data in a way that anyone can use. Now, institutions are empowered to share data through Microsoft’s Power BI Dashboards. Complicated data from many different class rooms, teachers, and schools can be organized into a simple dashboard.
Research shows more conversations between students and teachers can lead to increased attendance. By eliminating the daunting analysis of attendance and performance data they can quickly identify where problems are and specifically focus on those students that are under performing.
