Advisors login to Bi4Cloud using their Bi4Cloud credentials. They are presented with a Bi4Cloud Administrator screen similar to a business owners screen which shows the aAvisor's company files ( either test or real files). Additionally there is an "Advisors" label to indicate your are logged in as an advisor and two options (shown with red circles below) to access information about their clients.
The red circles 1 and 2 show items that only appear on the advisor console and hexagon is an indicator for BI Connector
- The first circle is under button that gives access to information about your clients
- The second circle is under a button that gives you access to your clients reporting system
- The Blue hexagon is an indicator that shows 1 or more datafiles are on a clients server and it shows if it is online or offline.
Access your Client's Reporting System
Clicking the Client option ( it's shown above in circle 2 ) on the menu bar provides access to all the Advisors clients.
It shows each Client organisation summary information. Clicking on the expand arrow ">" will then show each company within the selected client's organisation. The information displayed here depends upon the level of access the client has given to the Advisor.
Minimally the information displayed will contain the company name and last extract time. If the Client has provided the Advisor permission then additional buttons and charts are displayed. That permission is set in the after the end-user user logs in under the Organisation menu. See below.
An report access button under the Reports heading provide access to the Client BI menu and gives the advisor the ability to setup and configure clients reports and charts. On the same line spark charts display showing client business activity to give the advisor a snapshot view of the clients business.
You can use this screen to see when your clients last logged in, when their subscription expires and how many companies they have connected. You can filter to find specific clients and you can look at lapsed clients. If you require further information then this can be found in the Client Meta Data reporting area which is described next.
Client Meta Data and Advisor Income
The second Advisor option provides access to the Advisor Income including amortised income and access to your Clients Meta data including login statistics, favourite usage and the number of company files connected. There are several reports and charts here that will assist the advisor in monitoring clients activity and minimising client churn. In the screen shot below we show the churn report showing the login count for last 30 and 7 days indicating the usage frequency.
To access this area click the button highlighted in Red.
The following menu of reports is presented
The "00 Evaluation Progress" shows the usage of the BI4Cloud system by Evaluation Client and the reports is ordered by the number of Days the Evaluation has lasted.
If you see a non zero value under Companies_In_Use and high counts in 7 day and 30 day logins then it's likely the evaluation is going well. If the Companies_In_Use is 0 then they have nt connected a company file and are not trialling their data. This is a RED flag and they need to be followed up.
