Orbit and Kudos recognised that providing clients with real-time data and personalised reporting integrated directly into the Orbit Enterprise platform, could be a game changer.
Up until now, there has been no solution on the market that displays live, interactive data specific to travel expenditure and behaviours. Starting this journey two years ago, Kudos and Orbit began building a data warehouse utilising their mid-office system data. Through Orbit Intelligence they set out to empower their clients by delivering fast, intuitive, and relevant dashboards within their company travel platform, allowing clients access to their data anytime, anywhere.
Smooth integration and the benefits of single user experience is essential
After successfully building a data warehouse in AWS, Phil Rasmussen, Managing Director at Kudos and Ben Cochrane, Client Relationship Manager at Orbit found themselves at a crossroad.
The team had completed a mammoth task but got to a point where they needed further assistance in order to fully understand how to harness the numerous benefits of Microsoft Power BI.
“We were having trouble managing the workflow between our data warehouse and Power BI behind the scenes. We knew we needed to embrace best practices but found it difficult to keep up with the constantly evolving Power BI roadmap, with new features landing every two weeks. We needed an expert to help us optimise our Power BI configuration, and how to connect different data sets while ensuring the product remained user-friendly and customer-centric” Phil Rasmussen, Managing Director of Kudos said.
