Initially the company used Microsoft Excel for creating and viewing reports, but the process of report creation was complex, tiring and time-consuming. Therefore the company was looking for ways how to make the process simpler and more efficient.

Challenges and requirements

Providing possibilities of in-depth data analysis for sales results

Receiving and compiling data from different sources in a single solution

Quickly gaining an overview of the situation in easy-to-understand reports

The implemented solutions

The Microsoft Power BI analytics tool was selected as the most suitable solution. The ELVA specialists created the data exchange structure – data obtained from the Horizon system were imported into Power BI where they were transformed into data visualizations. As a result, the MEISTARS employees and management obtained reports that allowed analyzing sales data and understanding the sales process for each group of products.


  • Significant economy of time

    Creating reports no longer requires hours of work. After implementing Microsoft Power BI, the process requires just minutes. The most frequently used Power BI report is for the cash-box income, and the most popular Power BI function is the unified data representation.

  • Data is easier to understand, and decisions are made faster

    The entire company – both the management and the employees – have a clearer idea of what and how to do to achieve the defined goals.

  • More efficient cooperation with partners

    The negotiation process with suppliers has become faster and more productive.

Feedback from MEISTARS about Microsoft Power BI

Together with implementing Power BI our business was facing additional challenges – we also had to become more efficient. Power BI is one of the tools that has allowed us to reach our business goals.
