Most businesses spend a significant amount of time curating data and not enough time for actual analysis. This in turn means that they are leaving possible revenue on the table. A challenge is that the data from connected products and related business data are often unstructured. Conventional approaches to data aggregation and analysis, such as spreadsheets and database tables, are ill-suited to managing a wide variety of data formats.

These include the products they have purchased, usage history, changes they have made and so on. LogiSense Billing ships out of the box with pre-canned reports.
