Responsible employee gathers project status information and forms weekly report in MS Word which is further printed and submitted to the management. The report is reviewed at weekly project meeting.

  • Each report prepared manually. In fact, the report preparation process is the set of repeated operations which can be automated;
  • Longstanding report generating (data collection, sorting, formatting and printing);
  • Information cannot be submitted quickly, without advance preparation;
  • Reports inputs are non-typical source files, difficult to understand for non-prepared specialist;
  • Alternative view on the reports data would require another run of preparation chain: input data collection – renewal of MS Word file –printing the report;
  • Due to time-consuming report preparation process the report data can become irrelevant by the moment of review.
  • Unification of source files – use of simple Power Apps web-forms for project historical data collection.
  • Arranged data consolidated in automatically updated Power BI report.
  • The employees input the data into simple web forms with minimized mistake risk;
  • Key project parameters are represented on one dashboard;
  • Detailed project information available for separate reports;
  • Reports accessible 24/7 from any device, no need to request information;
  • No manual labour on report generation (the reports adjusted once and updated automatically in requires periods);
  • Onboard data transformation mechanisms. No need for extra calculations to present additional information (e.g. progressive total, deviations, indicators, comparison with previous periods, etc.);
  • Daily values transformed into monthly, quarterly and yearly by one click;
  • Possibility of self-service BI – slices, filters and buttons;
  • Differentiated access levels.
