What Is Visier Business Solutions?
Visier Business Solutions connects business data and people data, giving you the exact insights you need to solve your toughest business challenges. Learn more about what you can build here.
In the era of rapid digital transformation and dynamic labor markets, organizations are continuously seeking to understand how dynamic shifts impact the business. In order to respond quickly and strategically, business leaders need insight into the myriad ways their organizations—and their people—are impacted.
The challenge: combining people data with business data isn’t always straightforward. People data is difficult to obtain, manage, and store. Compounding this problem, building scalable and manageable analytics is infinitely more challenging.
People data on its own is quite valuable. People analytics provide rich insights on employee traits and their relationship to behavioral drivers. Imagine if you could combine people data with business data and apply analytical insights to a core business problem, like understanding the impact of your return to office strategy, or how skills gaps are changing in the face of new technologies.
Enter Visier® Business Solutions (VBS), empowering organizations to gain a 360° view of their data, analyzing both the business and people perspective. So, what exactly is Visier Business Solutions? Let’s dive in!

VBS in action: Using people data and business data to optimize return to office policies
Commonwealth Bank of Australia needed to understand if their return to the office plans were working—and specifically, what was working. They partnered with Visier Business Solutions to combine badge scan data with existing HR data. They were able to further break it down to look at certain populations—like caregivers with young children, for instance—to see if they had different working patterns from other groups. Ultimately, they were able to answer questions related to productivity, engagement, and health.
“We needed to get data-driven evidence based on insights to understand exactly what kind of hybrid working plan would work for the team and how to go about establishing it...Once we got the attendance data into Visier it allowed us to do that.”
-Gerhard Diedericks, Head of People Analytics, Commonwealth Bank
