Highland Spring Chooses Qlik to Get Better View of Sales Performance and Automate Supply Chain Processes
Sep 14 15
Qlik announced that Highland Spring is using QlikView to give sales staff rapid insight into sales and marketing performance figures and gain better insight into the business. The company purchased QlikView through partner Data Technology not just to streamline the way this information is analyzed, but to give access to the data in real-time across the company. This helps inform business strategies at the top of the organization and see where promotional spend is best allocated. Highland Spring was keen for its sales team to have access to business intelligence and to be able to drill down into the sales performance data. Using QlikView provides the sales team with all the data they need to engage in conversations with retailers about how their products are being sold in store and has allowed them to analyze the effectiveness of sales strategies. In addition, QlikView gives them the ability to cut and slice data in a way which helps them to solve and respond quickly to customer issues. The previous BI system the company was using required a high level of expertise for employees to be able to extract data. This meant sales teams and executives often needed to use analysts at head office in order to extract the figures they needed. Instead of data coming from various sources, introducing QlikView gave staff a single version of the truth, which gave them the confidence to make decisions based on the data they were receiving.
