RADNOR, Pa. -- February 12, 2013

QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence (BI), today announced that Groupe SEB, the world leader in small
domestic equipment, has selected the QlikView Business Discovery platform to
lead the Group towards the standardization of analysis processes and
measurement of inventories. Currently using QlikView across six continents,
Groupe SEB sells over 200 million products per year and employs 25,000 people

The Need to Empower Users

In 2009, Groupe SEB found that users are not fully satisfied with the results
obtained with Business Intelligence (BI) solutions in place: the manipulation
of reporting was complex and time-consuming. “We had to find a new solution,
more user-friendly and capable of handling large volumes of data with good
performance, even for remote users,” explains Philippe Vivier, Business
Intelligence Expert for Groupe SEB.

After examining different solutions, QlikView has proved the best solution in
terms of performance to face three main challenges:

  *Provide users with a scalable solution
  *Deploy platform in the world with good performance, even for remote web
  *Develop indicators that combine data from multiple ERP

With QlikView, Groupe SEB has chosen to focus primarily on three applications:

  *An industrial application, aimed at managers and industrial controllers;
  *A monitoring service actions application, to support the deployment of the
    Group’s CRM solution; and
  *An application that displays that provisioning of logistics indicators.

QlikView offers Groupe SEB a new approach to BI, and has become the platform
for controlling the logistics management of the Group. QlikView has given a
new vision of the business, helping to share the new indicators, standardizing
processes, and optimizing inventory management of active part numbers.

Today, Groupe SEB is working on 30 QlikView applications, which have access to
more than 800 users. Monitoring fees subsidiaries, rate of return and service
activities of the business, market share, and activity warehouses are part of
the Group’s proposed applications. Others are also being developed for
monitoring accidents, outputs cash, purchasing or stages of creation of new

For the IT team, the advantage of QlikView is its simplicity of use. “It is
possible to form a user to navigate in QlikView in an hour, even remotely,
which greatly simplifies the deployment in our international subsidiaries,”
continued Vivier.
