Carousel Digital Signage Integrates with Microsoft Power BI for Business Intelligence

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, July 12, 2021 – Carousel Digital Signage has unleased the power of business analytics within its Carousel Cloud software through integration with Power BI, Microsoft’s AI-powered data visualization toolset for enterprise businesses. Power BI integration allows Carousel Cloud users to create and share important business information across corporate digital signage networks, empowering executives and workers to make data-driven decisions that drive strategic actions.

Power BI provides users with a business intelligence platform to customize data sets, and present detailed reports and dashboards across one or more company locations. As Carousel Digital Signage provides secure authentication through direct integration, enterprise businesses are assured that sensitive information, including sales figures and KPIs, are protected from hackers and outside intrusions.

Power BI also drives stronger collaboration through multiple workspaces in its user platform. Two or more employees can leverage the same data to share insights and build reports across Microsoft Office applications, such as Teams and Excel. Each user can choose a report or dashboard to create a bulletin, filter important data, and create snapshots that are sharable company-wide or with certain departments. This helps businesses share and promote insights across many locations with better accuracy and consistency.

Retail businesses also benefit from integrating Power BI within their Carousel Cloud networks. Store managers can produce public dashboards on customer-facing displays to update shoppers on inventory, or provide customer service metrics around service desks and checkout lanes. Corporate retail offices can also share sales figures and sensitive data sets across private networks to help executives and managers make intelligent business decisions around staffing, inventory and much more.

In addition to presentations on Carousel Cloud-driven displays and video walls, users can deliver Power BI information over Carousel Express Players. This ensures that businesses reach remote employees by presenting company information over the corporate Intranet or on tablets. Reports and dashboards can be presented as embedded webpages or screensavers, for example. The Power BI program is natively accessible and managed through Carousel Cloud’s user interface.

“Power BI is useful for businesses of any kind with a need to quickly and accurately model and visualize rich data that drive employee and customer engagement,” said Jennifer McCleary, Director of Engineering, Carousel Digital Signage. “We can now help businesses empower workers with the information they need to make quick, sensible business decisions, and share approved business data that is meaningful to public audiences. All users are assured a secure solution that aligns with Microsoft’s very stringent security standards, ensuring that all sensitive business information is thoroughly protected.”
