Business Intelligence is critical for the success of an e-commerce business. As an owner you want to have a complete overview of your store operations, sales, inventory, customers and customer service. This allows you to manage your online business more effectively and efficiently.
Traditionally setting up BI systems and dashboards has been a very time consuming and expensive process. This approach is not suitable to work in today’s fast paced dynamic environments. You need a system that is agile, flexible collaborative and easy to deploy and use.
Keeping this in mind, we here at Cerebrate have built an out of the box integration with Spree Commerce to setup a BI solution with minimal effort. You can be up and running with a full-fledged BI dashboard in a matter of minutes. Below is a simple overview of how to setup analytics dashboard for your storefront using our BI solution – CIBI!
What is CIBI?
CIBI stands for Cerebrate Integrated Business Intelligence. It’s a web based Business Intelligence product developed for small and medium scale enterprises. CIBI can get you setup for your reporting needs in a matter of hours – not weeks or months! It’s hosted at www.cibi.co & we offer a free trial for you to check it out.
