"As an IT Service Provider, we support our customers - usually medium-sized B2B companies with around 25 to 5,000 computer users - with infrastructure and applications.manager Pat Van Roey starts telling. "We work with a select number of suppliers for this purpose. During customer meetings, our ERP and CRM Specialists found that many companies needed a more advanced solution for their financial reporting. After extensive market research, BrightAnalytics was chosen".
Without the intervention of IT
"There are several reasons for that."explains Finance Director Hans Hoskens. "BrightAnalytics goes a step further than other BI tools. It is not only a financial reporting tool, but also a controlling tool. Operational staff in the financial department can set it up and manage it themselves without the intervention of an IT person".Hans is moving on. "We think that's crucial. Usually a lot of time and work is put into financial reporting, and less into analyzing the data. But that should be the other way around: the data should be available at all times, so that you can get started quickly".
At a glance
Because VanRoey.be does not like to present something to customers without working with them, BrightAnalytics was also implemented at their own premises. The main motive for this was the introduction of a analytical accountingand overhead costs had to be divided between the different business units. "In BrightAnalytics we can set up distribution keys in the background so that those costs are automatically distributed among the business units in the reporting".according to Hans. "In the past, we would have had to rely on Excel for this, where an error creeps into formulas and multiple sheets have to be used. In BrightAnalytics, filtering is fast, and you can see the results at a glance afterwards. It saves us time, is user-friendly and enables us to work quickly".
No additional cost for customization
Meanwhile, VanRoey.be continues to offer other BI to customers. "For a productivity report, which shows who performed how many hours on which project, is Power BI. an excellent tool, for example, which is also freely accessible to everyone".Pat says. "But filtering on an analytical level is difficult. And if you want to work with distribution keys in order to make a correct analysis of the figures, customisation is often required. In such cases, BrightAnalytics is a better option".
