RADNOR, Pa. -- March 5, 2013
QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence (BI), today announced that LARSON Manufacturing Company, a
QlikTech customer, was named a winner of the 2013 Manufacturing Leadership 100
Awards (ML100). Through successful implementation of QlikView, LARSON was
recognized as an outstanding performer in the Information Leadership
category.Winners in this category have gained significant business benefits
by implementing enterprise process improvements that deliver actionable,
real-time visibility into critical business operations.
LARSON is the largest manufacturer of storm doors and storm windows in the
U.S. The company prides itself on being driven by its customers, most of who
are in the “do-it-yourself” market. The company has three manufacturing plants
and ships through its own distribution centers around the U.S. In order to
improve visibility into product quality and supply chain effectiveness plus
decrease cost and time of reporting and provide employees with a self-service
BI solution that enabled discovery and decision making, LARSON Manufacturing
deployed over 90 QlikView applications to over 200 business users.
LARSON’s access to important business information improved dramatically with
the use of QlikView. The company used to spend considerable time and money on
systems and processes to collect data. Further, some data analysis was so
difficult only limited review could be done. QlikView has greatly expanded the
value of this information by putting all levels of it at employees’
fingertips. Instead of relying on IT to pull pre-determined reports, employees
can now independently log into their apps and pull reports that are useful and
can help inform business decisions.
“We congratulate LARSON for its innovative approach to improving operations
and customer satisfaction using QlikView,” said David Telford, Senior Director
of Global Manufacturing & High Tech Market Development at QlikTech. “LARSON
was recognized for its ability to put BI in the hands of its users and improve
operations. This empowers LARSON to successfully deliver a competitive
advantage and maintain its position as the largest manufacturer of storm
windows in the U.S.”
