See Crowe Operational Analytics in action 

Take a look at Crowe Operational Analytics up close to see how it could help your business.  

The keys to improving your company are buried in your data. Operational analytics helps you uncover them.

Whether you’re looking to reduce scrap, minimize machine downtime, or invest in the areas of your business that are truly making you money – you’ll need to make decisions based on lots of accurate data. But just getting your hands on that information in a format you can understand can be an overwhelming task.

Crowe Operational Analytics is a robust reporting and analytics solution that gives you access to key data in an easy-to-use format. This software allows you to view, manipulate, and analyze your data so that your business decisions become clear. 

See what’s really going on in your business 

Data can be sliced and diced and aggregated so you can see immediate, big-picture results, and drill down to the details that matter to you – whether it’s the status of a specific delivery, or how market price fluctuations are impacting you.   

Manage inventory more efficiently

Easily examine your inventory turns so that you can reduce carrying costs and stay prepared to service customers quickly. You can also compare vendor pricing on each material type to ensure you’re consistently getting the most competitive rates. 

Understand the factors impacting profitability

When you know where you’re making money and where you’re losing it, you can make powerful decisions that affect your bottom line. Metals companies can analyze profitability by everything from material grade to product group to processing machine.

We can tailor Operational Analytics for your industry – and our metals experience proves it.
