Business Intelligence & Data Warehouse

With over 20,000 business metrics, creating custom dashboards showing team members exactly how well they’re doing against their key performance goals is only scratching the surface of what this powerful tool can do. In fact, we have clients calling BizIQ ‘The Holy Grail Report’ because it answers questions they previously could never get answers to!

You can create detailed reports, standard trend reports, and Ad hoc reports to support and analyze and measure any company business initiative you can imagine, including LTOs, operational rollouts, and cost reduction efforts.

With a massive data warehouse to store information down to the transaction level, the most detailed analyses are now possible.

Utilize data visualization tools with a rich graphical interface to make it easier for your people to analyze complex business metrics.


Organize and analyze all of your business data.  CrunchTime! BizIQ was purpose-built for restaurants from the ground-up using the MicroStrategy platform as it’s foundation.  BizIQ was honored as the winner of a 2014 American Business Awards Stevie® New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Business or Competitive Intelligence Solution.
