giniPredict: The Xero dashboard that gives you foresight and insight (not just hindsight)
Poor financial management is the reason 82% of small businesses fail.
A scary statistic, yes. But when we look closer, we see that the challenge for most small businesses is not about keeping up with their accounting, it is about getting answers to their most pressing questions quickly enough.
Small businesses need quicker answers to questions like:
- When will we need a loan?
- Which marketing activities have the most impact on sales?
- What is our profit likely to be 6 months from now?
The problem is, most small businesses lack the tools that support strategic decision-making.
Accounting software like Xero is wonderful... for record-keeping. But it was never designed to shout out, “Hey, you’re going to run out of cash in four months if you don’t act now.”
It is, by nature, a record-keeping software that audits the past rather than predicts the future.
Which is why so many people end up exporting their Xero reports to do further analysis and forecasting in spreadsheets — a highly tedious, time-consuming and error-prone process.
Markets move so fast nowadays, that analysing data manually — even for professional analysts — just takes too long. There isn’t time to do a proper financial analysis for every decision.
As a result, many crucial questions go unanswered.
You need a faster, easier way to predict your financial data
We built an AI-powered financial dashboard that gives you instant clarity on the financial health of your company now — and where it’s headed next — at all times.
Hosted on Google Data Studio, the giniPredict Financial Dashboard generates AI-powered forecasts and insights from your Xero data in under 5 minutes.
This kind of AI predictive analytics technology is usually only accessible to big companies with teams of data specialists. But we believe small and medium businesses deserve to benefit from it, too. So we made it easy enough for anyone to use. No coding needed.
Here are some of the cool things it does:
#1 A financial dashboard that syncs with Xero
The giniPredict Financial Dashboard syncs directly with Xero, saving you all the hours spent on tedious data prep. With giniPredict, you can update the data in a click and always have the latest information at hand. (More integrations coming soon.)
#2 A financial dashboard that runs 50% more accurate forecasts
To run your business properly, you need a pretty good idea of what your profit, income and expenses are likely to be 6 to 12 months from now.
Calculating that manually takes some advanced mathematics skills, a lot of spreadsheet formulas, and a great deal of patience.
The giniPredict Financial Dashboard generates an AI-powered forecast on your business finances as soon as you connect to Xero. You get a reliable forecast on your net profit, income and expenses that reflects the seasonality in your data, giving you a clearer view of the road ahead.
#3 A financial dashboard that identifies key business drivers
giniPredict’s AI predictive models perform advanced analysis on your data, examining the relationships between each variable in every possible combination and uncovering correlations you never knew existed.
The key drivers chart helps you understand what’s most closely correlated with your income and net profit, so you know which levers to pull to reach your targets.
#4 A financial dashboard that gives instant clarity on your profitability
The giniPredict Financial Dashboard makes it easy to understand your profitability at a glance, with charts that show your net profit, operating profit and gross profit; your profit margins; and how your profit is trending over time. All updated in a click.
This makes it easier to take action and do what’s right for your business before it’s too late.
#5 A financial dashboard that powers rapid reporting
Hosted by Google Data Studio, the giniPredict Financial Dashboard is easy to share, download, embed in websites and presentation decks, and even send as a regularly scheduled email.
When it’s this easy to update and share reports, you can rest assured that everyone is on the same page. Always.
