Make better, more informed decisions through clear project insight..

Provide accurate dashboard reports showing progress, cost and resource status for effective communication on performance.

Senior management hate surprises about overruns and problems and want to be kept informed on progress, but do not have time to wade through  detail to find answers. This can mean project managers have to spend a lot of  time creating reports, often in different formats for different people. For those project managers using silos systems and paper-based processes compiling and presenting reports can be an especially laborious experience and senior management can get frustrated at not having easy access to the information they need.

Business Intelligence provides easy to create, professional looking reports that can be easily tailored and delivered with one click.

It is a powerful analytical tool for generating clear portfolio reports on any combination of project data. Status reports can be easily created without the labour intensive task of having to collate the data manually. As a result Project Managers can produce and publish key performance reports, critical milestone reports, cost reports and much more with ease.

Business Intelligence has a built-in exporter which enables data from Asta Powerproject to be combined with third party data sources to form tailored web-reports for specific users. It comes with a number of report templates as well as easy-to-use tools so you can create personalised, professional looking reports which management can run whenever they want to.
