Integrating Business Intelligence and Business Planning for the Staffing Industry.

To improve business performance, organizations strategically utilize the technology of business intelligence and planning tools.

Business intelligence tools look at ‘what happened?’, collating data from multiple sources, filtering and simplifying information in a visual, easy to digest way. Business planning tools look at the future, anticipating trends, predicting outcomes through simulation, and scenario planning to help plan for the short, medium, and long term.

1Staff Planning Staffing Software making strategic planning, budget management & reporting easier

"Planning gave us the ability to pull data from multiple databases and we have multiple databases. We have our ERP system, 1Staff Back Office, Webtime, we have our front office system Bullhorn, and we also have other databases which eventually we would like to link to as well and pull information from. Being able to pull information from multiple systems and report that all on one dashboard and put that information together to analyze the information from is really powerful."
