ESR Business Intelligence


The electronic staff records (ESR) Business Intelligence (BI) function transforms the vast amount of data stored in ESR into visually appealing dashboards. It can be used to produce useful reports to aid strategic and operational decision making.

A standard suite of dashboards on ESR BI cover the broad range of data that is captured on the system. They include:

  • absence
  • compliance
  • staff in post
  • staff movement
  • payroll
  • pensions
  • workforce profile.
ESR BI is available free to any organisation using ESR, and dashboard designs are put forward and approved by users, which helps to ensure that the system fits their needs.

Further information including a visual demonstation of the system is available from the ESR website.
