Phocas Business Intelligence

Phocas is a business intelligence (BI) application designed for both the automotive and non-automotive industries, that helps non-technical business users make better informed and more frequent decisions. Phocas fosters an environment where users can simply and easily access company data and organisations become more successful as a result.

What is Phocas BI?

Phocas empowers users to analyse data within a deceptively simple user interface of grids, visualisations, dashboards and results-driven collaboration, enabling you to carry out ad-hoc data interrogation, associate and consolidate data, identify trends, conduct modelling and stay ahead of the competition.

Phocas enables mashups of data across all data sources - not only from within MAM (such as sales data, purchasing data, order data, budget data and financials) but also from CRM, Cloud, Marketing systems and even spreadsheets.

Whether you’re a big picture thinker or go straight to the detail, Phocas leads the way in analysis and visualisation of your data.
