Spire’s Microsoft Power BI Connector is a powerful business analytics tool that allows users to visualize and share insights from their data. We have developed a custom connector that provides seamless integration with Spire. This connector enables you to effortlessly access and analyze your Spire data within the Power BI environment. Spire clients can create their own reports or work with their Spire Authorized Partner to develop customized data insight and access.

The ability to connect Microsoft Power BI to your Spire creates a powerful solution that transcends report limitations, unlocking unparalleled insights across all departments. With this connector, you can create:

  • Interactive Dashboards
  • Data Visualization
  • AdHoc Reporting
  • Collaboration and Sharing
  • Scheduled Automated Reporting
  • Mobile Reporting
  • And more*

Every department within the organization can benefit:

Finance Department:

The finance department gains real-time visibility into key financial metrics by integrating Power BI with Spire’s financial modules. Automated reporting and dynamic dashboards enable finance teams to analyze cash flow, monitor expenses, and forecast financial performance more accurately. This integration streamlines budgeting processes and facilitates compliance with regulatory requirements.

Sales & Supply Chain Management:

Enhance supply chain efficiency by integrating Power BI with Spire’s Inventory, Sales and Purchase Order modules. Real-time tracking of inventory levels, supplier performance, and demand forecasting helps streamline operations, minimize stockouts, and optimize procurement processes. This ultimately delivers improved supply chain responsiveness and reduced operational costs.


Connecting Power BI to Spire’s Payroll module allows management to gain deeper insights into workforce analytics. Visualizing employee performance, turnover rates, and salary increases or bonuses facilitates strategic decision-making for talent management, succession planning, and overall organizational development. (Spire Payroll required*)
