BizView adds planning capabilities to
Microsoft Power BI

We have just released our greatest update of BizView for Power BI, the tool that extends the reach and power of Microsoft Power BI.

The BizView solution for Power BI is specifically designed to strengthen Microsoft as a business intelligence platform. BizView adds important functionality such as forecasting, budgeting and financial reporting integrated with your other components of the Power BI stack.

The solution supports everything from very simple data entry forms to complex procedures for forecasting, budgeting and financial reporting. BizView’s Excel-like design tool makes it easy for controllers and other administrators to create different types of input forms. The built-in support for approval workflow provides visibility and control of processes where many users need to work on registration and approval of data.

BizView for Power BI adds powerful corporate performance management capabilities with planning, forecasting and budgeting to Microsoft Power BI. It allows for extended planning: sales, production, personnel, costs, revenues, etc. And unlike competitors, BizView is an open solution built on SQL Server and designed for easy integration with data warehouses in both directions.

BizView 7.1 – with focus onvimproved communication

Late last year we launched the 7.1 version of BizView. Built upon the success of 7.0 and fine-tuned for a better user experience, this version brings BizView one step ahead of the competitors.

The main focus was to ease the way we communicate in a work process, so we developed new functionality related to management comments and collaboration in relation to reported figures.

Commenting will complement the already exis ing text handling, commenting and collaboration features within BizView. In earlier versions it has been possible to add comments to cells and rows in planning forms, and add comments and attach documents to steps in workflows. But now, in BizView 7.1, you can now work with text, comments and documents embedded within structured reports (and planning forms).

Going places!

What is the common denominator for Electrolux, Samhall, Boliden and Skandia Insurance? For Atea, Dala Kraft, Halmstads Energi and more than 200 accounting firms in Norway? Or for leading food & beverage producers, global shipping companies and advertising and media agencies in the UK and US? Well, they are among the more than 1,000 companies using BizView worldwide.

It is all based on a new way of thinking. Logic, systematics, openness, scalability, flexibility – the foundation of a world class business management system.
