Power BI Services for a Lab Process Automation Company
Power BI is a powerful tool that translates data into value for a company empowering even non-technical specialists with the information helping them to make data-driven decisions.
A few words about our client. MicroTechniX is a company that specializes in the automation of laboratory processes. The company’s team takes care of the entire lab process from research and development to after-sales, such as maintenance and repairs.
We assisted Microtechnix in building comprehensive visual analytics of one of their core processes: lab equipment utilization. Before diving deeper into our project- BI services for this company, we see it necessary to explain some terms, like “cytomats.” Cytomate is a 100% automated incubator for cell growth with a wide range of temperatures and humidity parameters. We have built an online intelligence visualization of the cytomates usage and capacity for a specific time period. A peculiar feature of this report is that Power BI will update the information in the dashboard automatically once new data is entered into the system. Thus, our client’s team received a comprehensible dashboard with the online visualization of the lab equipment data.
What tools did we choose for providing the most effective Business Intelligence services? Power BI, the solution that was named the leader by Gartner for 12 consecutive years. Power BI helps companies to accumulate valuable data of various formats in one place and visualize it so that anyone, even the person unfamiliar with statistics and business analysis can understand it quickly.
