Business Requirement:

iD Fresh Food approach CloudFronts with the following requirements –

  1. Develop Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Dashboards on the Power BI platform by integrating data from various systems to enable business insights and quick decision making backed up by “data”.
  2. Provide a single source of truth for the entire organization based on Power BI reports and dashboards.
  3. Equip everyone from the CEO to the Regional Manager with analytics at their finger-tips with access anytime, anywhere and across any device.

Solution Delivered:

The CloudFronts team first understood the iD Fresh Food business model to get an understanding of the key data points for developing KPIs and dashboards. The CloudFronts team then developed the Sales dashboard on top of Power BI using a custom built ‘DialGauge’ visual. This visual along with other key dashboards like the ‘Run Rate’ dashboard provided iD Fresh Food’s Management with rich analytics and a deep understanding of the state of their high growth business.

“The Sales, Operations and Financial dashboards developed by CloudFronts are now an integral part of our decision-making process and provide us with a pulse on our business. Our CEO and Management team now start their day by looking at the KPIs on their Power BI mobile app!”
