Using BI to maximise revenue.

The number one focus of BI should arguably be “How should I use BI to Maximise Revenue”. In this presentation (it’s 27 minutes long) from a recent Sydney Business Intelligence User Group, Mantra Group tells us how they use BI to do just that.


Peter Curtis, Redflex Holdings

Maintain credibility with accurate data.

If your reports don’t hold up to scrutiny, it’s very difficult to get your credibility back. Ensure one version of the truth and one set of numbers that the business can trust.


Rachel Waters, Mantra Group

“Our 18 month forecast is generated automatically in two and a half minutes by creating a new version.”


Adrian Karzon, Ardent Leisure

Increase margins, improve returns.

Drive additional revenue.

BI for us is not just a tool but is a mind-set. Making good decisions depends on good information which means cleaner business processes.


Peter Homan, Davidson Trahaire Corpsych

BI vendors need to share your vision.

BI vendors need to care.

Business Intelligence requires access to specific skill sets and an ability to share a vision. My exposure to these guys over a decade has tested that and I have always found it to be, not necessarily an easy path, but a profitable path for both of us. It’s just been fun working with people who get the vision and enjoy working in it


Jeremy Scott, Strike Bowling

Transactional systems reporting is poor.

Make it better with operational reporting.

Strike uses BI tools to add real value by integrating business data with the transactional data.


Peter Curtis, Redflex Holdings

Go home on time!

If someone wants something really quickly, I can produce reports in 10-15 minutes so no problem with having to work overtime. Not at Redflex.


Rachel Waters, Mantra Group
