Hence, companies are constantly looking for ways to reduce employee turnover rate and to prevent valued employees from leaving the company.
Orion is a premier portfolio accounting SaaS provider for advisors. Its 950+ clients manage assets spanning 1.5million accounts and totaling nearly $375 billion. A lot of responsibility, wouldn’t you say? No wonder they needed a powerful, dependable, accurate BI tool.
The trouble was, when Sisense met them, they were using a static reporting solution that served up stale news weeks after month’s-end… while their customers wanted pre-configured, dynamic dashboards. By switching to Sisense, BI expert Malinda Jepsen was able to offer all of this, while even doubling sales revenue at the same time.
The Challenge: Stale and Static Reports
Orion’s platform gathers and analyzes data on client investments, allowing firms to view overall performance, and identify strengths and weaknesses in their business strategy. Its manually built reporting platform was flexible and customizable, but slow: by the time they generated each client report, it was already out of date. Plus, the data was static, so clients couldn’t delve in to check the details or context. They only had headline figures, giving them an idea of overall performance. If they wanted to analyze this in any way, they’d have to request a special data query.
The company needed to move from business metrics to business intelligence. Their customers needed a platform with better visualizations and direct access to accurate, up-to-date data, in order to make informed business decisions.
Interactive Embedded Analytics
Their customers wanted pre-configured dashboards, with the interactivity to let them explore their data and drill down into details. Luckily, the white labeling function in Sisense worked perfectly for this: they could embed the BI tool into their product and offer it to their clients as part of their own platform.
Now, Malinda says that advisors are better able to monitor business trends, zoom into the details, address questions regarding Assets Under Management (AUM) changes over time, new accounts opened by month/year/quarter, transaction types, top performers, cash flows, demographic trends, and more. Sisense’s Elasticube feature actually helped them to clean up, strip back, and simplify the amount of data they were using, more than halving the 500GB of data that was clogging up their SQL Server.
The project has been a resounding success. 98% of Orion’s clients have already adopted the new tool and say they find it easy to use. Nearly 2,000 users from all over the 200gb Sisense Elasticube now engage with dashboard views. Moreover, Orion has seen its business nearly double since the rollout.
Orion’s customers went from being unable to explain how the summarized numbers on their monthly report were reached, to being able to trace data all the way back to the source to figure out exactly what happened. End users can go on to explore and explain any surprises, uncovering invaluable insights.
