From manual reporting across multiple sources to fast, accurate business decisions. A self-storage provider’s journey via Azure and Power BI.
The National Storage IT team was spending precious time and effort on repeated reporting. They now have a single source of truth thanks to WARDY IT’s Azure and Power BI solutions.
If the business didn’t make a change to aid their move to a digital business, helping them to be smarter and leaner in how they approached their market, their ability to change and grow would have been stagnated.
Objective: A single source of truth
As General Manager of Technology at National Storage, Marcus Barron noticed the organisation didn’t have an integrated analytics platform – and that it was causing problems.
National Storage relied on data being collated from multiple sources in Excel to get a true cross business view of key metrics. The manual nature of this task took considerable time and effort and could potentially introduce human error. Marcus wanted to address these challenges. He wanted an integrated analytics platform that would provide one single source of truth.
"What our project achieved was the reduction of effort for repeated reporting, but truly defined the first Source of the Analytics Truth for National Storage." Marcus says.
