The London-based client deals with retail store implementation and brand location activation at different shopping environments like airports, border shops, and ferries across the world. With an active global network and retail merchandising expertise, they work with an array of industries and brands to set up their retail environments.
The client has asked us for a business intelligence solution to track their project income, expense, P&L, location activities, project type, and so on. They wanted to make the best use of data to analyze, improve, and create better engagement with their worldwide customers.
Data Quality: Source data quality is the issue as we are receiving many fields from source data that need to be manipulated to populate our reports. As many of the fields in the transaction system populate in the source system in text boxes by users without any validation.
Project size – project size is not defined separately in the transaction system. It was mentioned in the project title, so we have to extract the project size based on some business logic.
Project Type – Project type is a text field in the source system so we have filtered data by applying certain business rules.
Xero Integration: The client was using Xero as a financial application and therefore, extracting data using the API was also difficult to achieve for our team.
SPEC India understood the requirements and provided an end-to-end Business Intelligence solution that helped them to better analyze the Xero data to get insights into the project’s financial KPIs. It eventually helped customers to share real-time information about the project’s status to key stakeholders and take better decisions to make the project successful.
Our solution was integrated with the following features using Power BI:
Cleansing the main fields like project size, installation date, project title data with power query and DAX
As the quality of the data is very poor. Our experts have used power queries to cleanse the main fields that are necessary for reporting.
To create profit and loss reports by branch, we extracted Xero application data by using the API and stored it in MSSQL, and loaded it in Power BI.
