A guide to procurement reports by datapine

Innovation, branding, and business model aside, if your business is rife with inefficiencies and led by poor decision-making, your potential for growth will become stunted. Whatever sector or industry you are in, procuring goods and services both efficiently and strategically will accelerate the success of your business. Effective procurement reports and processes will save you time and money while making your business more productive and sustainable.

However, we live in a digital age where statistics, data, and deep-dive insights reign supreme, giving us the power to spot potential issues and inefficiencies within the business. Thanks to the right KPI software, it is much easier to identify trends and set goals that will ultimately increase productivity, drive growth, and boost profits. Procurement reporting is no exception.


How To Create Data Reports That Will Skyrocket Your Business Performance

How to create data reports by datapine.

While they have always played a pivotal role in business success, the terms ‘data report’ or ‘business report’ haven’t exactly been synonymous with creativity or innovation. Data reporting is often seen as a necessary evil created by analysts and consultants to offer functional operational insights. As such, the term usually conjures up images of static PDFs, old-school PowerPoint slides, and big tables. Usually created with past data without any room for generating real-time or predictive insights, data reports were deemed obsolete, consisting of numerous external and internal files, without proper data management processes at hand.

But in the digital age, it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, the business intelligence industry has evolved enormously over the past decade, and data reports are riding the crest of this incredible technological wave.
