Those using Business Intelligence (BI) tools know there’s power in pushing your iAuditor data into these systems. Using your business’ BI tool, you can visualize, blend, and trend information from your Inspection data against other operating metrics in your business like revenue, sales, customer satisfaction, and more. 

Connect with market-leading BI Tools like - 

  • Power BI
  • Tableau
  • Others & data warehouses via the iAuditor Exporter tool (*Coming soon)

 

How does it work? 

  • Power BI - Uses a custom integrated connector that directly interfaces your Power BI instance with the iAuditor back end. This eliminates the need for a gateway server to store the data. The connector can directly pull data into Power BI. Transformations and manipulation to the connector are available to fit your needs.
  • Tableau - We’ve created a custom Web Data Connector (WDC), which effectively functions as a page which Tableau understands how to pull data directly from our backend. We’ve hosted the connector so that there’s minimal work required from your end to adapt your data source to this WDC, and you’re able to directly connect to it from your Tableau instance and start manipulating data as needed.
  • Other BI Tools & data warehouses - The iAuditor exporter tool (*coming soon) is set up to bulk-export your iAuditor data in a format that is easy for BI Tools, like the one you’re using, consuming. This should allow you to easily import that data from the bulk-export into your BI tool. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I use the iAuditor Exporter tool versus the other offerings? 

  • If you’re using PowerBI or Tableau, we recommend using the tools setup with a direct connection because those connections will likely be the most streamlined. 
  • If you’re using a different BI Tool or a data warehouse, we recommend using the iAuditor Exporter tool (*coming soon). The iAuditor exporter tool is set up to bulk-export your iAuditor data in a format that is easy for BI Tools, like the one you’re using, to consume. This should allow you to easily import that data from the bulk-export into your BI tool. 

Will I need another subscription to make this integration work? 

  • No, as long as you have a valid license for PowerBI, Tableau, or your existing BI tool, you will be able to use our connectors free of charge to connect between iAuditor and your BI tool. 

Will I need a software engineer/development resource to set this up? 

  • No, these tools were developed to make the connection fairly easy to set up. Assuming you’re comfortable with the step-by-step guide, you should be able to set up this connection without technical support. Should you have any questions while you’re setting this up, feel free to contact our team at support@safetyculture.com.  

What is an API? 

  • API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” It allows you to connect iAuditor with other tools through an intermediary. Essentially, it means the two tools will be speaking the same language to one another, and you can execute workflows across your different toolsets.
