Making the Case for Business Analytics

For many small business owners, monitoring the numbers behind a business is something they hate and put off as long as possible.
But, consider, half of startup businesses fail in the first year and 1 in 5 business are failing right now!
Maybe we should think more about how to reduce that sad toll!  About how not to also become road kill!
Business analytics can be a great help

Properly designed tools like our 12Faces collection are easy to use and understand but give great insight into how the business is going.
That way, you can hopefully nip a business downturn in the bud before it becomes serious.
