Data visualisation with Power BI

Power BI visualises business data from across the enterprise. One of the ways to give direction to the organisation is to look closely at the figures. However, it is sometimes difficult to determine the progress of a particular campaign or stock group directly.

You would like to see how sales, finance and stock, for example, develop through time. Microsoft's front-end analytics tooling helps with this with interactive dashboards with which you are up to date on a daily basis. You immediately see what needs to be done to continue an upward trend. Take adequate action. In the case of the creditor balance, for example.

Advantages of Power BI


Power BI Dashboards help gain insight in daily processes and thus transform data into action. For all roles in the organisation.


Making forecasts and distributing them throughout the organisation is both simple and efficient with Power BI.


View trends as they progress. The BIRDS Datahub ensures data is fresh and accurate.

Patterns and correlations

All data together forms a complete picture and shows at a glance where connections and patterns are visible.eeeee

Off the shelf dashboards in Power BI

Hillstar's standardized BI solution provides a comprehensive set of standard reports in Power BI. After the data has been prepared, visualisations load with current data on a daily basis. The beauty of Power BI and the computing power of BIRDS ensure broad adoption.
Power BI levert rapportages voor iedereen

Reports for everyone

Power BI enables organisations to work data-driven. We feed every role within the organisation with the information needed to make better choices on a daily basis. Whether it is the CFO or the production employee. Everyone needs insights to improve results.

Intervening before a problem arises

It is almost impossible to maintain a constant focus on dozens of KPIs. While we simply equip Power BI with alerts to keep all numbers within the margin. Is there a number running out of the set margin? You will be notified immediately and can intervene right away, before it turns into a problem.

Connect data sources and see more

The combination with BIRDS ensures that various data sources come together in one place. BIRDS then visualises that data in Power BI. This way you do not only look at data from Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Business Central, Dynamics AX/F&O or Exact Globe, but also at ERP, CRM, Web, HRM, Fleet management, external Excel sheets, WMS and so much more.

Next-gen Analytics

With Power BI, Microsoft has expanded its ecosystem with a crucial component, Business Intelligence. Power BI is included in the Power Platform, which also includes Power Apps, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents. The high degree of integration ensures that expansion is easy.

Power BI & Excel

Power BI is sometimes mentioned as a replacement for Microsoft Excel. However, these two solutions are often used side by side. In combination with BIRDS this becomes a very strong triangle that supports each other. BIRDS delivers structured, cleaned data to Power BI and Excel, for those moments when you want to ad hoc set some data against each other or are busy, for example.
