The project is about developing a Power BI-based software application for a popular enterprise group and professional solution provider, designing innovative solutions for varied domains like civils, diamond tools, contract moulding, construction, Agri-equine, material handling, and marine. They derive solutions from customer understanding, innovative design, hands-on experience, and expert engineering.
Their business operations span across multiple countries and have a well-selected network of international trade partners. They have been creating ingenious, multi-award-winning product portfolios, keeping in mind the problems faced by customers.
They were keen to design and develop a business intelligence solution that can analyse the data from Microsoft Dynamics ERP enterprise solution along with details of labour cost, warranty cost and other service-related costs for better tracking of metrics.
The client was finding it difficult to visualise different reports based on parameters. They were looking for a business intelligence application that could gather information from different sources, connect Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution and map data accordingly.
As a project, firstly, we connected the enterprise system data and generated a range of visualizations for tracking different costs and factors related to warranty. We have designed a range of Power BI dashboards and reports to offer insights for different parameters.
Key Components of Power BI Dashboard
We have created a data model in Power BI using the minimal approach. We have leveraged SQL Server to get the data from Microsoft Dynamics ERP and have created specific DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) measures to get the correct output.
We have created Power BI reports that can give an idea about salesman-wise warranty cost, service income and sales information with detailed categories to track how much portion is left after all costs.
Sales information with detailed categories
Salesman-wise warranty cost
