A Message to Our Partners: Clients, Employees, Vendors, and Colleagues Vizion Solutions has been in business for 17 years. We are truly proud of the company that weve become and the amazing culture that weve created. Since 2002, we have worked hard to transform from 2 employees in a garage to a thriving, talented team of over forty that was just named the 2019 Tech Company of the Year by OHTec. Weve come a long way and its been one heck of ride. As an implementor of EOS, Vizion Solutions leadership began to reflect on who we really are as an organization, addressing tough questions about where we were and where we wanted to go as an organization. What did we want to be? How can we achieve our 3-year and 10-year goals? This culminated in many offsite retreats and strategy sessions where our leadership team committed to defining who we are, why we do what we do and what were the uncompromising core values by which we operate. To no surprise this process of self-discovery and exploration
Sales Dashboard Helps the CEO Reach Their Targets At Vizion Solutions, we take pride in our ability to handle your data and help make it work for your company. We care about creating solutions that bring value to your specific role and integrate seamlessly with your team, data, and operations. This video dives into a CEO Scorecard thats part of the Vizion360 Impact Portal, made to help you harness the power of your data. Why a Scorecard Just for the CEO? Vizion creates many dashboards customized for various key players and departments Sales, Operations, Finance, and Leadership (Like the CFO, CTO, or CEO) to name a few. We understand that Key PerformanceIndicators (KPIs) are different for every team leader and department. The insights a CEO needs to make quick effective decisions day-to-day differs from what a CFO or Operations Manager might require. The scorecard we are discussing here is a Sales Scorecard for a CEO; Its one of many reports made just for a CEO reviewing
Every business handles its data analytics and reporting differently, but theres one point thats true across all industries: The way you address and utilize technology will significantly impact your bottom line. Thats why its crucial to have a data analytics partner on hand for your company so you dont need to have your IT department or another head wasting resources on data. Tech professionals arent just IT and IT is more than what it appears or what internal departments cover. Having a data tech professional makes a key difference in business operations, strategy, and quality. Here are some of the benefits of using tech professionals to handle all of your Business Intelligence and Data Analytics needs for you: 1. Focus on what you do best Hiring a full-time, Business Intelligence or Data Analytics professional takes up significant amounts of time, money and productivity which your business may not have. Instead, hiring an outside professional to work on your BI and data
Operating a business may sometimes seem like a game of chance. Sometimes the sales are flowing, other times business is stagnant. You notice certain times of the day or days of the week customers are more active with your product or service - but youre not sure why. You may wonder why some products or services arent taking off the way you expected. Are you missing something that could be a huge opportunity? All of these uncertainties make businesses lose out and ROI unpredictable and inconsistent. However, business need not be a gamble. When you understand the whys and whats to your particular sales, customers and daily operations, then you can be proactive in moving forward. That is why data analytics and reporting is so important for businesses. When you use a BI tool such as Microsoft Power BI, you harness the power of your data, put it to good use and take action with it. Just what is data analytics? Data analytics simply refers to the process of extracting business data and then

In this day and technological age, recruiting efforts (like career fairs) have become more and more automated. Several articles lately express that recruiting is a dying field because technology allows companies easy access to a diverse candidate pool. While I will not disagree with that, I will say that it does not have the same effect/outcome as face to face interaction that you may gain at an event like a career fair. Vizion Solutions and our employees pride ourselves on living by our 5 core values: Client Success, Teamwork For Results, Be The Best, Take Responsibility and Do The Right Thing. During the recruiting and interview process we look for candidates who showcase our core values and we ultimately use it as our number one recruiting tool. Attending career fairs gives Vizion an advantage to meet their applicants face to face rather than just on a resume. Many interns and full time employees Vizion has brought onto our team have left an impression on us within the first moments

Bottleneck - A point of congestion in a system that occurs when workloads arrive at a given point more quickly than that point can handle them. The biggest bottlenecks in the report production process are caused by human intervention. Youre talking about dealing with enormous amounts of data that needs to be brought in from multiple source systems. With that much data, theres too much room for error and overstepping when its handled manually. The data has to be cleansed and lined up properly and there are usually complex business rules and filters that need to be applied. Its too much to ask a human to keep up with the work a computer should be doing. Consider what you are giving up if you continue to put people in the middle of a report development process that should be automated: Speed your reports wont always be ready when you NEED them Hours If you were to audit how many hours your staff spends building recurring reports, the cost maysurprise you.
