Visualise your data with Microsoft Power BI

Microsoft Power BI is a business analytics solution that allows you to visualise your data and share insights across your organisation, or embed them into your app or website.

Databeat’s Power BI widget makes it simple for you to display reports and dashboards directly onto your digital signage screens. This removes the need to create reports and distribute them to stakeholders or teams manually, saving you valuable time.

PowerBI is ideal for internal communications as teams can view their dashboards all in one place, on a screen that’s strategically placed in the workspace. Your dashboards could display sales and marketing data, financials, employee KPIs, and more.

Here are just a few of the things you can do using Power BI:

  • Transform data into stunning visuals and share them with colleagues on any device
  • Visually explore and analyse data — on-premises or in the cloud — all in one view
  • Collaborate on and share customised dashboards and interactive reports
  • Scale across your organisation with built-in governance and world-renowned security

By utilising our Power BI widget in combination with DatabeatOMNI, you can reduce wasted reporting hours and keep your team connected. For instructions on how to show PowerBI dashboards using DatabeatOMNI, click here.

Social media widgets to keep your audience engaged

Incorporating live widgets in your digital signage is another quick and easy way to make your content stand out. DatabeatOMNI comes pre-packaged with a selection of live widgets which you can drag and drop onto your designs to deliver up-to-date information in real-time.

For example, you could layer social media widgets on top of your existing content across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to display live feeds on trending topics. If a relevant news story is trending on Twitter, why not embrace the opportunity and make use of it in your own digital signage?

Social media is also an excellent way to entertain your audience. For example, one of our customers, Tusenfryd run the largest theme park in Norway. While their customers wait in line, they can keep them engaged by displaying social feeds and encouraging them to share photos from their day out.

However you decide to utilise live widgets in DatabeatOMNI — from social media to RSS news feeds — doing so can help you retain your audience’s attention for longer and keep them engaged with your brand.
