Business Intelligence

What is Business Intelligence?

Sage 200 BI is a powerful tool developed by Sage to create useful management reports, with graphics using your Sage 200 data and the familiar platform of Microsoft Excel.

Extract meaningful timely intelligence from your data without having to learn complicated field names. Business Intelligence comes with a catalogue of pre-defined reports, e.g. Sales by customer by month, worst paying customers, most profitable products. These reports can be customised to your requirements or you can generate new reports that were previously too complicated to produce.

Reporting and Analytics within ExcelAnalyse your data quickly and effectively in a familiar environment. Sage 200 BI brings data into Microsoft Excel without the user needing to export or rekey the information, allowing you to enhance the reports using standard excel formatting, such as calculations and macros. This functionality minimises the training required as the majority of users will already know how to use Excel.
