VSNExplorer BI — The newly enhanced VSNExplorer BI is capable of transforming media information and metadata into powerful business intelligence. A module of VSNExplorer, this broadcast-centric BI tool can extract information on assets, quality, traffic, transcoding and other activities from extensive VSN data sources or even third-party systems; then it presents selected data in simple graphics and customer reports that can help decision-makers analyze business performance. Eliminating the need to create reports manually or rely on third-party systems, VSNExplorer BI can generate reports based on workflow status, pending user tasks or any custom MAM metadata criteria defined by the user. Users also have access to automatic analytical documents and reports created by default, as well as to customized dashboards that combine different reports and layouts (bar, pie, column, chart, bullet, speedometer, etc.)
VSNExplorer BI lets users control and analyze any given broadcast company’s data — even segmenting data by department and including filters to select based upon circumstances. Thanks to those reports, an administrator can make business decisions at the start of a process and then monitor it from a single dashboard. A powerful analytic and decision-making tool, VSNExplorer BI helps companies detect inefficiencies and bottlenecks, solve problems, and make decisions that drive greater revenue and more efficient use of corporate resources.
