Why Zebra BI?

We at Zebra BI believe every report should answer the fundamental business questions: How well are we doing? Where should we focus our attention? Which action should we take?

Standardization plays a crucial part in this process as it gives you immediate insights into performance, and everybody is looking at the same reports. Without any risk of misinterpretation.

Besides standardization, we believe additional context is what makes an actionable report. Our visuals don’t just show how something is good or bad, but they tell you exactly what’s going on. And this empowers you to take the right action.

Time is money, especially in business reporting. Zebra BI visuals will empower you with automatic calculations for many business areas, such as year-over-year variance in Plan or Forecast. But not only that. Besides calculations, Zebra BI visuals will also visualize the data for you. As a result, you will save up to 10x more time while creating flexible reports that are also understandable and actionable.

Zebra BI visuals are extremely powerful and simple to use. You are able to build sophisticated reports within minutes. What I like best is the interactivity. Not only can you click on data to update all other visuals on the report, but you can also toggle between different chart types at a click of the mouse all within the same visual!
