Power BI is a data visualisation tool which uses great looking graphics and dashboards to present your data in a meaningful and understandable way. Working seamlessly with Dynamics NAV | 365 Business Central plus many other data sources, Power BI can extract, analyse and display key information that allows you to see exactly what is happening within your organisation.
Combined with the experience of being a Microsoft Partner, we can help you identify the key metrics and values which should be reported on, saving you the time and inconvenience of having to manually go looking and checking yourself. Connecting directly to Dynamics NAV | 365 Business Central, Power BI can also connect to other 3rd party sources of information, allowing you to pull different data sets together to further improve your insights, while reducing the time to do so.
Power BI’s approach to data collection, analysis and presentation means it has a wide range of uses. Typical installations see Managing Directors, Operations Directors, Team Leaders and Shop Floor Staff all having access to key metrics and information specific to their role. With a comprehensive set of permissions functionality, the type and sensitivity of the data can be controlled so only those who need access to it can.
Requisite Solutions can help you implement a Power BI system using a structured and cost effective method. We will look at your current reporting and data sources, discuss the information that can be obtained from them and identify any gaps. Based on this, a plan on what needs to be joined to the Power BI platform can be devised. End user requirements are documented and draft reports are produced. Once approved, the final solution is built, installed and staff training is provided.
Our ongoing aftercare services assist with new user training, advanced user training and adding new data sources, dashboards, feeds and other 3rd party sources in to the solution. As other parts of your business grow or change, we can assist with each step to ensure that your Business Information is kept up to date and the quality is maintained as you grow.

Microsoft Power Apps is part of the Power Platform. It is range of cloud based solutions which can be used on their own, or integrated within the Microsoft suite of solutions and other 3rd party products.
Designed to enable Tablet and Phone based applications to be built specifically for your requirements, Power Apps lets you take your data, business process and service standards to the very edge of your organisation. From field engineers to installers, sales staff to delivery drivers, a Power App can connect to your systems, enabling your team to have the information they need and collect data back in real time.
Power Apps are ideal for organisations who want to enable their staff to work with their business systems in a way which is specifically designed and engineered for the end user. Because the core of the system is based in the cloud, it enables the joining of a Power App installed on a phone to be connected to your core system or systems. With the ability to fully design and customise the screens, menus and flow of the app, your end users have access to an app which fits their needs whilst it simultaneously updates your core systems behind the scenes.
The rapid development approach provided by Power Apps means a working concept can be rapidly built and prototyped with the key stakeholders in a short space of time. An extensive list of pre-built add-ons and connectors means Power Apps can be connected with your system(s) quickly and effectively and the Google/Apple Store App ensures you can deploy to your users within minutes of publishing. Changes can be deployed just as quickly meaning that, once deployed, new features or changes to procedures can be made and pushed out to as many users as needed at a click of a button. This rapid development environment provides a real example of how a cloud based solution can be powerful and flexible alongside enabling your business to make savings and enhancing the service provided.
