When Processing Costs Change, What's the Effect on
Your Customer and Product Margins?

Why BI Systems and Spreadsheets Don't Support
Business Intelligence applications monitor past performance, and lack the reporting capabilities to model scenario changes. Often requiring IT involvement, these operationally focused tools and technologies are not flexible enough to make informed, competitive business decisions in response to volatile economic conditions.
As a result, many business managers have developed their own solutions. The most commonly used tool is the spreadsheet. Applied in many different ways from one department to another, these documents quickly become unmanageable and out of date, often contain significant errors and don't encourage effective information sharing and collaboration.
