How to stop wasting valuable time on reports? Due to the current era of big data, artificial intelligence, robotizing and advanced algorithms we all know how important good management reports and dashboards are. The Future of Work is at your doorstep. Data is the key element to add value to the customer. However, a lot of companies have an abundance of reports that are unused or outdated. We all know those reports that we don't use or reports that are build from other reports, put together in Excel and used as the final report. It is time-consuming. Sensitive to manual errors.
