"People don't talk about the operational value of BI very often. It seems more interesting to talk about units picked per hour than the nitty-gritty of everyday operations. But BI tools can help you find huge savings in those routine, daily operations - and pretty soon the tools start to pay for themselves." - Colton Griffin, CEO of WMSight
BI is visible through dashboards that give users a macro-level view of what's happening in the warehouse, plus the ability to drill down further into the details.
In some companies, basic information, much less insight, remains cloistered and hoarded away because of anxiety over how information gets used and who should have access to it. But this anxiety is easy to relieve. Today, more simply, quickly and cost-effectively than ever, businesses can gather the data they need to arrive at-and share-insights that enable innovation.
“Business Intelligence isn't just about gathering the data, it's about getting a group of people with varying levels of background and comfort to understand the data and act upon it. Some managers can glance at a dashboard and glean everything they need to know, but others may recoil at a large amount of data! An ideal BI solution has to relay information to a diverse group of people and present challenges for them to think through." - Chris Brennan is the Director of Innovation for Hall's Warehouse and also the President of the HighJump 3PL Customer Advisory Board
