I don't even know if that's the correct terminology. What we're looking for is a program that we can take all of the many data sources we have and put them into one spot and create measurable metrics once the data has been ran against similar relevant data.

We just have so many different avenues that data is being collected, it's like drinking through a fire hose.
- Marketing
- CRM
- DIS
- Purchasing
- Service

I could go on but those are the main ones that we want to be able to put into a system, tell that system the guidelines we want to fall within, and be able to at a glance, in real time, notice if there's an issue before it's too late.

Thank you very much!

I saw this thread's title and came here hoping that someone actually gave a link for working business management software. Powerbi is good, but it's quite complicated to work with it, TBH. I don't know, maybe it's only my problem. Or it isn't? Anyway, sometimes even working with Excel is easier. For example, not so long ago I've found timesheet template Excel and made a timesheet for my subordinates. Now they work more productive than ever. Because they see how much time they have.

Another option is Google DataStudio but you would more than likely need to hire programmers to get your data out and into DataStudio. DataStudio does have a few limitations so you need to make sure you set up the data properly and know ahead of time what you want your reports to look like.

- Inventory management
- Equity mining (maybe that's what you mean by purchasing)
