LabStats is now more powerful and versatile than ever.

LabStats has been providing data-as-a-service to higher education institutions for almost two decades. We offer the most reliable and robust data, specifically tailored to the needs of college and university IT teams. In fact, the first version of LabStats was developed by a university lab manager, just trying to find a better way to do his job.

Historically, we’ve focused on built-in reports to help our users better understand hardware and software usage across their organizations. 

Now, we’re excited to announce that we’ve improved our ability to offer access to robust historical data through expanded API endpoints and thoughtfully designed Power BI Dashboard Templates. 

Here’s why we recommend connecting your LabStats data to Power BI Service:

  1. Review a year or more of data at once in one visualization
  2. See how campus computer usage impacts broader goals including graduation rates, budgets, grades, etc.
  3. Get at the facts that matter to you in the format that works best for you
  4. Update your reports with fresh data automatically
  5. Provide each member of your team with their own view of the data that matters to them
  6. Find hardware and software that can be cut (and won’t be missed) 

A quick overview of what you can do with LabStats and Power BI:

  1. Run big reports: see a year or more data at once in one visualization 
  2. Quickly find software and hardware with zero usage 
  3. Create and save reports with custom criteria
  4. Automatically email reports on a schedule*
  5. Schedule reports to refresh automatically*
