Product tier: Available to Expert subscription tier

Greenhouse's Business Intelligence (BI) Connector provides additional insight into an organization's Greenhouse Recruiting data designed for companies with robust analytics and business intelligence requirements that prefer a more flexible, hands-on approach to analyzing their data. 

If your organization uses Tableau, PowerBI, or another data tool, BI Connector will help send clean data from Greenhouse Recruiting or Greenhouse Onboarding into your tools.

Data for beginners

Greenhouse Recruiting has built-in reports to help most users understand certain metrics for candidates and employees entered in Greenhouse applications.

However, some organizations employ specialized data analysts to make unique reports for their organization or tie Greenhouse application data to other data sources. In this case, the organization must have a data tool (or BI tool). This tool is a specialized piece of software used to receive the raw data from Greenhouse and manipulate it to create unique reports. Common data tools include Tableau, Power BI, and others. 

Your data storage

Because these are unique reports created from your data and maintained by your organization, your data analysts and IT department are responsible for hooking up the data and make the reports work. To make things simple (and to make sure that your analysts don't have to be experts in Greenhouse software), we export your data to a standard storage location on the Amazon cloud, which your analysts can then use to hook up to your data tools. 

Because the data is stored in a standard way, this also means your organization can choose any data tool they want to visualize Greenhouse data. It's your data - do what you want with it!
