Customer Profile: Our client is a group of dedicated dental professionals having a chain of 30 clinics spread across entire US. Their vision is to open state-of-the-art dental care practices that would combine the highest standard of care, the latest technologies, and the services of talented general dentists and specialists to meet the needs of the communities they serve.

Current Trends

A reliable ad hoc reporting application has been the need of the hour for Dental Management organizations that acquire, develop and manage several dental clinics across locations and wire a dental clinic network.

Business Situation

Our client had BI tools that have pre-prepared reports curated by the IT department. But they were looking for an ad hoc query tool, which their business users could use to create dynamic business reports without relying on IT, when they needed to find instant answers to particular business questions.

Solution

Leo TechnoSoft’s expert team of developers worked jointly with the client’s business team to deliver an innovative ad-hoc reporting solution, which like all BI applications, is squarely aimed at achieving the company’s goals.

Our developers firstly identified what was each end-user’s strategic function within the company, and then ensured that the ad-hoc reporting solution was optimized to make that function more effective and easier. The developed ad hoc query tool allows a business user to create custom queries and reports outside the extent of the pre-prepared reports. As these queries can put strain on the company’s database, they are run against the data warehouse designed particularly for analytical purposes.

Our customized solution not only helps our client with clean and imposing data on the front end but also fetches the data and transforms it using an ETL for faster processing. Any clinical location at any point of time, a click and the client has the descriptive data in seconds.
