Before starting to use Power BI, there were a lot of work needed for some meetings (as you had to do same slide for all the possible scenarios) and there were not much flexibility during the discussions.
Now all the flexibility can be addapted during the conversations, making faster and clearer decissions as you can visualize everything with a couple of clicks.
Also it is superflexible in terms of connection to different data providers, so you can combine a lot of information from various places in just one dashboard.
We import these CSVs to a central data source (SQL Server) and then use Power BI Desktop to transform this data into phenomenal interactive drilldown reports for the executive and financial departments to easily review and take immediate decisions, the transformation is fairly easily and intuitive and the outcomes are very satisfying.
On the [Microsoft] Power BI Pro side, we have it connected to a few online data sources from the cloud, with its automated refresh functionality, we are getting fresh and up to date reports and analytics that help our management make decisions quickly and effectively, [Microsoft] Power BI is an amazing product!
Power BI reports and charts makes it easy to visualize problem areas in production and distribution and where to make necessary improvements in the future. It is great for collaborating with coworkers with dashboards.
