The secret to powerful reports

Not long ago, finance executives at one of the world’s most sustainable telecommunications companies, KPN, decided to replace Powerpoint-driven meetings with conversations based on real-time insights.
To convince the top management, the team behind the initiative called Steering 2.0 didn’t just build the reports and dashboards — they also created large chambers with interactive screens where board members can now have interactive discussions based on facts.
Ever since, KPN has been using innovative approaches to spread the adoption of reports built with Power BI and Zebra BI down the organization, enabling people to share them via Teams and finding other ways to help people use them anywhere at any time.
At this live webinar, Pieter Jan de Vries, Product Owner of Managed Dashboarding, and Wilco Nagtzaam, Senior Financial Controller at KPN will share their story and lead us through some of their key dashboards that they're using today.
No BS. Practical advice. Real reports.

We spoke to our webinar guests to give us a sneak peek into how THEY did it. Watch the video 👇

Our financial landing page at KPN is completely based on the sales dashboard template. We also use a copy of the consolidated financials. The templates of Zebra BI are providing us with a lot of inspiration, and we don't "need to invent the wheel" again 😉

An amazing visual for finance. It has a lot of possibilities such as analytic periods, variances, or custom hierarchies for your income statement. 100% advisable.

I've recently been experimenting with Zebra BI's custom Table visual, which is like the native Power BI matrix on steroids. If your work allows for the use of custom visuals, I think it's definitely worth checking out. Planning on doing a video on it soon...

I had a phone interview for a #PowerBI contract, where the interviewer said of the sample dashboards in my CV: "Great...I see you use @ZebraBI!" How cool is that? And they mentioned my top-secret passphrase on the call: "Actionable Insight". I'm in.

The reusable trick of switch I think is brilliant! And obviously, Zebra BI table replaces any other table now in Power bi. RIP to normal tables!
Manuel Barahona Gandía

This visual from Zebra BI enables you to build stunning P&L, CF, and BS statements with complex structures with ease. Very intuitive for developers and users. In my opinion the best solution for Financial Reporting structures. 11 Stars!

As you say, Andrej Lapajne, we spent A LOT, searching and explaining how to do Comments, with Power Apps, and also with the help of Excel. They were workarounds!!! No doubt...this is awesome and the simple way to go forward.
