They usually look like this:
What is the solution?
There are a multitude of reporting tools in the market. According to a recent Gartner magic quadrant report (Feb 2020), Microsoft Power BI and Tableau are clear leaders in this market, followed by Qlik and ThoughtSpot.
We recommend Power BI as it has multiple advantages, one of which is the power query tool built into the solution. Power query enables you to bring multiple data sources together and unify them into a single interactive reporting visual. Power BI dynamically changes the data as you select elements on the report making analysis and storytelling easy to do.
Heatmaps utilise GPS coordinates and allow you to create visuals with insightful geographical data.
Common uses include customer sale location and customer delivery locations.
This type of data can help visualise delivery zones and target new customers in new regions
Visual reports that allow you to interact, drill through, and dynamically change to reflect criteria are extremely powerful information tools.
Built for sales teams, they allow end users to slice by product category, subcategory, customer, sales rep and specific items.
As you select one dimension, the other dimensions dynamically update.
