CHP selects Simpson Associates and Power BI for collaborative reporting across the business.

Power BI is a cloud-based business analytics service that gives you a single view of your business-critical data. Monitor the health of your business using a live dashboard, create detailed interactive reports with Power BI Desktop and access your data in real-time wherever business takes you with Power BI Mobile. If you already have your own reporting applications or portals, you can embed Power BI reports and dashboards for a unified experience.

Richard Hawkes, Digital Services Development Manager at CHP had this to say:

“We had a requirement to migrate and consolidate a significant number of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), Crystal and other bespoke reports. The project was time sensitive, so we needed confidence the organisation we engaged with had the technical expertise to deliver. Not only do Simpson Associates have proven experience in the Social Housing sector, but they recommended the best tools and approach for our complex reporting requirements. By spending time with us to understand our requirements, they could deploy a team of experts to begin work quickly. This was particularly useful as our own resources were focused on migrating to Capita OPENHousing and delivering digital services. Our programme of work is about having the best possible technical platform to support our internal business, and ultimately our residents. Power BI fits seamlessly with our goals, as well as our agenda of obtaining best Value for Money from our Microsoft Enterprise Agreement.”
