Secorun Business Intelligence is an elastic tool that allows free extraction, transformation, analysis and visualization of data coming from any source available at the organization (e.g. the systems such as: ERP, TMS, WMS, MES, CRM, technical security systems, automation systems, structurized Excel sheets, ticket systems) in order to help the companies to better understand and optimize their business processes.
We know that having access to only basic information presented in a simple way such as numbers, sums or average values is too little to get a full understanding of the business situation and make a good decision. Nowadays, there are more advanced analytical tools required that allow processing, analysis and presentation of the data in a dynamic and interactive way. Tools that would make it possible to explore the data, generate hypotheses, identify the data (what is it, what values and contents does it carry, in what processes is it possible to use it, how to interpret it), define the KPI, answer business questions and also visualize the data in a way that is clear and easy to understand.
Tools and services that make up Secorun Business Intelligence include a variety of methods – such as data analysis and understanding, data warehousing, reporting, dashboarding – that help with getting a better knowledge about the data and business processes.
The technological stack used in the solutions allows an easy integration with data from other informatic systems aggregating data related to the organization management. As a result of this, cross-sectional analyses from the Secorun products and all the other systems used at the company can be visualized using Secorun Business Intelligence or other BI tools used in the organization.
“Not using the dormant power of collected data may nowadays be considered as giving up that could hurt the business over time. The competition doesn’t sleep. Using Secorun Business Intelligence and the support of our analysts and data engineers you can maximize taking your chances and minimize materialization of the risks.“

Alina is a production manager at a facility where there is a constant need of supervision over machines and production processes. Because of that, a three-shift work system was introduced.
A few times a year, the employees’ absence significantly increases and causes interruptions in the three-shift system functioning. In that situation the continuity of the production process is endangered and there might be problems with realizing the commissions.
What is the absence percentage per one individual brigade? What is the relation between absences and overtime? Is it possible to find a trend in the employees’ absences? Can we plan and secure the production?
