How can Business Intelligence Improve your Performance?

It's simple...Business Intelligence (BI) applications give instant, intuitive access to program data across your agency to support a performance dialog and inform program and policy decisions that are supported by data. Our Performance Matters application services are fast, intuitive and strictly designed to help you go beyond mere reporting numbers up the chain. We want your agency to have reporting and analytics capabilities that can empower staff to understand what's happening within WIOA programs, for whom, why, when and be given the necessary information to act upon that new found insight. It all amounts to a smarter agency, what we call Workforce Intelligence, thus giving your agency the ability to performance at it's best and better meet the needs of the communities your serve.

But to really understand how BI can help Workforce Development initiatives, you must see it for yourself and take a moment to hear from experts who have implemented it across the workforce development system, across states and Workforce Development Boards.
