Business Intelligence

Do you answer "yes" to any of these:

  • Do you keep your information in spreadsheets and multiple types of files?
  • Would you like to see at a glance how your business is performing?
  • Do you have difficulty tracking your KPIs? Your OEE? Productivity? Riddors?
  • Do you often run time consuming reports from your ERP system? Or waste time trying to combine raw data files from multiple systems?
  • Do you miss alerts when one of your processes is out of control?
  • Do you waste time arguing over whose data is correct?
  • Do you often think there must be an easier way to manage and analyse all this data?

If you answered yes to one or more then, using Diver BI, we can simplify your information systems and give you an edge over your competitors. You will be able to see your strengths and weaknesses in one place, see where you can afford to spend money and where you can save money.

Diver BI can’t make the decisions for you, you are still responsible for that, but we can supply you with the necessary weaponry to enable your business decisions to reach your target!

So what is Business Intelligence (BI)?


Basically, it’s using tools and techniques to transform raw data into something meaningful and useful. Businesses use it to stay one step ahead of the competition as they can eliminate or reduce their weaknesses and pin point where they waste money.

Get in touch to find out how you too can use BI to stand out from the competition!

The name Diver comes from the idea that you can drill or dive into the information:

Not only can Diver give you the numbers (referred to as ‘Diver models’) but you can create graphs and reports which can be shown on a dashboard:

All of these outputs can be automatically updated as often as required to give you visibility to your key indicators in one place.
You can even set up the system to email you a copy of the dashboard if you do not have time to log in.
Another of its clever features is the ability to email an alert to you if certain limits are breached. So if a machine ventures out of its control limits or if a sales order was entered with the wrong selling price then an alert can be sent to enable a correction to be made.
