Fluix Power BI Integration | Data visualization

The big number of companies prefer collecting field data for further export into an Excel spreadsheet in order to perform manual analysis afterward. Though there is a much more advanced and efficient method to benefit from the data collected into the Fluix datasets – by connecting Fluix to the data visualization platform. One of such platforms is Power BI. 

Power BI is a market-leading data processing and visualization tool that helps to uncover meaningful insights of your current workflow using the data collected by your field team. You can utilize colorful and comprehensible graphs, histograms, and other visualization tools in Power BI to process your field data and get a wide picture of the current conditions and requirements of the different aspects of your business.

Use case examples

Besides saved time and eliminated manual effort, automatically aggregated and structured data can benefit in many processes, such as:   

  • Ability to check what is going on on-site
  • Ability for local sites to immediately identify and fix issues
  • Access to granular data, for analyzing and comparing multiple sites in the field
  • Ability to identify trends to optimize efficiency
  • Resource planning
  • Revealing hidden bottlenecks, defects, and missing information
  • Reporting for compliance with regulations (e.g. OSHA).

This article would be useful for those who need to automate the flow of capturing data in forms by remote teams and its aggregation and analysis in an efficient way.

Let’s see how the integration of Fluix and SeaTable systems helps to automate the process.

What integration does

The integration of Fluix and SeaTable systems automates both the process of collecting information in digital forms on mobile and then its aggregation and structuring for further analysis and data-driven actions.

Fluix is a web and mobile-based cloud platform that helps teams with setting up digital document management and workflow automation. In this integration, Fluix serves as an electronic data capture system.

SeaTable is an online database software for managing data in a spreadsheet/database kind of view where you can store and process different types of data captured in Fluix.

Integration between Fluix and SeaTable allows you to create a separate database-like table for each part of your business processes, like accounting, operations, and internal employee management, and seamlessly, not noticeable by the end-user, direct the corresponding field data from the forms completed in Fluix into the required columns in the particular SeaTable database. 

Example of data integration:
The data is entered in the form in the Fluix app:

Once the form is submitted, entered data automatically appears in the SeTable database:
