Interactive analysis made easy

The tool for business intelligence and dashboarding

Sound analyses require figures that are reliable and up to date. Only then can they facilitate decisions that will stand up to scrutiny. This is why records that are relevant to such analyses need to be maintained constantly in both quantitative and qualitative terms. Ideally, the process is also automated.

This is another area where LucaNet offers the perfect solution. Our apps enable LucaNet software to interface seamlessly with tools like Microsoft Power BI, opening the door to a fully integrated combination of financial performance management and business intelligence. You’ll then be able to prepare your financial figures in tabular formats and assess them transparently in ad-hoc graphics, flexible time-series analyses, and dynamic comparison views for your reporting. After that, you can visualize, share, and personalize your financial data using a BI tool within centralized, interactive, and mobile dashboards and diagrams. Since all the data this requires is validated in advance, you won't have to worry about flawed figures that may have been imported.
