QlikView Business Discovery Platform deployed

QlikTech has announced that Peugeot Netherlands has deployed the QlikView Business Discovery platform to gain real-time customer insight and to proactively inform customers and partners about the status of service-level agreements and orders.  This rapid access to information has led to improved services and up-to-date information, creating a time gain on reports of at least two to four days a month.

 

Mike Wesselink, Head, Fleet Sales at Peugeot Netherlands said, “The reason for us to start talking with OneLine Zuid about QlikView was the optimization of our services to customers. Obviously we want to spend our time on our customers, not on reports. However, the use of spreadsheets, separate data sources, and cobbled-together system links hindered us often when informing our external relations and with the compilation of internal reports. The result was a lot of time loss. With QlikView, we improved the quality of our information and now we can further optimize our service.”

 

Mikel Snijders, Director, OneLine Zuid said, “We have noticed the increasing problems of spreadsheet limitations. The trick is to make all relevant data easily available and accessible to users, so they can make the right connections and quick decisions. The solution we offered Peugeot is an excellent example. It shows how our industry knowledge and technical expertise added value to Peugeot’s data.”

QlikView replaces Excel

QlikView replaces Excel

QlikTech has announced that its QlikView Business Discovery platform is helping organizations around the globe to overcome the limitations of spreadsheets.

As a result of the limitations of traditional BI tools, many business users have adopted spreadsheets due to their wide availability. However, these general productivity tools were not specifically designed to facilitate interactivity, collaboration, aggregation, or analysis of data for decision making.

“One of the reasons spreadsheets have remained popular is their ease of use and flexibility, allowing users to create their own analysis without waiting for IT. QlikView delivers not only the agility business users require, but also the security, manageability, and consistency lacking in desktop spreadsheets. QlikView is an achievable step-up to user-driven BI, especially for small and midsize companies which are outgrowing the time and productivity drains of consolidating multiple versions of spreadsheets,” said Jeff Boehm, Vice-President, Global Product Marketing, Qliktech.

With QlikView on iPad, companies like Illes have the ability to react quickly and efficiently to data and unlike any other offering, users can interact and analyze that data to help customers make informed business decisions in the field,” said Randy Gonzalez, Director, Axis Group, LLC.
