tl,dr; Timing influences your decisions, build up ways to slice, dice and view that data for better decision making!
I was recently problem solving with a friend of mine. She is a finance manager at a medium sized business. She wanted to be able to see:
- forecasted budgets (from NetSuite)
- past spending (QuickBooks) and
- recent transactions (bank, multiple sources)
All in one view.
An additional requirement she had was that we couldn’t use a cloud service because her team won’t approve it. Sharing with Google would not be allowed.
I freaked out. Not because I thought it was particularly challenging, but that these systems hadn’t provided this kind of reporting already. I guess all three sources were really bad at putting this kind of data on a calendar view.
When I had sketched out a proof-of-concept, she exclaimed:
Even if I could see one of the data sources on a calendar view would be a MASSIVE improvement.
The reality is that a lot of services and platforms have “date” information, but the display, flow and aggregation of that data into a simple calendar view isn’t easy.
We solve this problem. Throw data information into Kinetic Calendar and you’ll start having more useful insights into planned and unplanned work right away.
