Flybe Takes Off with QlikView Business Discovery Europe’s largest regional airline gains near real-time booking views and improved fleet punctuality Business Wire RADNOR, Pa. -- April 16, 2013 QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), today announced that Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline that boasts the UK’s largest market share of domestic flights, has deployed the QlikView Business Discovery platform for revenue management, improved business analysis, and fleet performance (punctuality and flight efficiency). With existing BI tools in place, Flybe was not looking for a replacement but there was a need for a complementary platform that could provide more complex and detailed BI analysis of very large datasets. QlikView allows the airline to gain near real-time data access straight from its Oracle databases in a five minute process and refreshes data when concurrent users are accessing and querying it, which is essential in providing a consistent view across the business. Now with QlikView, Flybe can monitor sales in near real-time which is crucial for management decision-making and out of hours access. QlikView, introduced to Flybe by Aviation Analytics, a consultancy serving the aviation industry and focused on BI analysis strategies and delivery for aviation, has quickly created new and detailed views for Flybe and designed an application that understands the ‘pulse of the business.’ The airline’s existing in-memory analytical tools could not compete on the same scale and any upgrade of the existing toolset was not able to deliver the anticipated return on investment in terms of the level of detail and time efficiencies required. Quinton Davies, Business Intelligence Manager for Flybe comments: “We were looking for a customized data visualization tool that was scalable and intuitive that would deliver quick-to-market BI initiatives. With our support partner, Aviation Analytics, we were very quickly up and running after only three days’ training enabling us to deliver our system ‘go live’ within six weeks. With our partner’s assistance, we can now deliver and continue producing ^ first rate BI views across the whole Flybe organization. The usual barriers of resource and timescales have been considerably reduced and QlikView empowers us with a real self-service environment that allows rapid turnaround of Year-on-Year analysis, metric comparisons and ‘what if’ scenarios from initial business discussions to the prototyping and production of BI applications. “Flybe is impressed with the online QlikView community and views it as a mature, informative and important part of our development lifecycle and we are looking forward to continuing to move forward with them as they introduce even more developments that will assist us further with route profitability analysis.” Sean Farrington, RVP Northern Europe & MD UK & Ireland at QlikTech adds: “As a key player in the aviation industry, it’s vital for Flybe to be able to keep an eye on performance, whether fleet punctuality, flight efficiency and revenues, in order to manage the airline and deliver an outstanding service to its customers. Using QlikView Business Discovery, Flybe can now track for opportunities to further develop its services in the aviation industry and react quickly when required.” About QlikTech QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK) is a leader in Business Discovery—user-driven Business Intelligence (BI).
