For example, say, your sales force has sold 12 pieces of a particular SKU and can book the status accordingly. Once the data is entered accordingly in Tally, it immediately gets reflected in your EasyReports dashboard and reports and you know the updated inventory status in a click.
If the stock goes below the lower threshold limit, the BI dashboard would immediately raise an alert and you can reorder items based on this data without waiting for end-of-day data transfer and update which might lead to loss of sales opportunity. This helps you the get real time update on demand and rather than blocking your money in building up a huge inventory you can maintain a sleek inventory which impacts your cash flow positively. This real time update of data happens without manual intervention. The back office operations and production from real time demand (in case you are a manufacturer) benefits your organization from top line as well as bottom line aspect.
