Alca saves hours of time, thanks to Qlik business solution

Thanks to numerous advanced features of the new BI solution, Alca Trading managed to significantly increase efficiency and sales realization. 

Implementation first started with collection of data from multiple data sources, and continued through optimization of business operations in one of the distribution divisions. The first stage of the project included data analysis and sales and finances analysis. Some of the plans used in these processes were not located in the original ERP system. One of the main challenges for Adacta’s experts was integration of the missing data in a simple and modular way.

"Grouping data on so many levels, using this type of detailed report used to take us at least a day. Now we do it in less than 2 minutes … Naturally, with facts and figures always up to date.”

- Nikola Micic, IT manager, Alca Trading Ltd.

About Alca Trading

Alca Trading Ltd. continuously invests in development and improves the quality of services offered to business partners. The company cultivates an individual approach to each and every partner in order to take into account specific circumstances and their individual needs. Combining experience and knowledge of supply chain management, this company aims to define the optimal range of services for all its clients. Being competitive in logistics and distribution sector is difficult and hardly even possible without comprehensive support of a reliable information system. Management of Alca Trading recognized this need nd decided to introduce a modern business intelligence solution – QlikView. Once top management reached the decision about the BI solution, choosing the implementation partner turned out to be an easy task.

About the project

Implementation first started with collection of data from multiple data sources, and continued through optimization of business operations in one of the distribution divisions. The first stage of the project included data analysis and sales and finances analysis. Some of the plans used in these processes were not located in the original ERP system. One of the main challenges for Adacta’s experts was integration of the missing data in a simple and modular way.

The second challenge was to reduce the time required for extremely time consuming processes of data analysis and reporting. Once again, the mere simplicity of QlikView solution led to substantial time savings. In addition, Adacta’s team trained the key users and took part in partial training of end users. Once the preparation phase was completed, the project implementation took place in two different countries. Albeit based on the same ERP solution, the two implementations carefully took into ccount local particularities and market conditions.

The Solution

QlikView Business Discovery is a whole new way of doing things that puts the business user in control. Unlike traditional BI, where just a few people are involved in insight creation, Business Discovery enables everyone to create insight. Before QlikView was introduced, realization analysis required data from multiple sources and usually took more than a day for one person. Since QlikView seamlessly integrates data from different sources, the same analysis now takes only couple of minutes for that same person. Thanks to numerous advanced feature of the new BI solution, Alca Trading managed to significantly increase efficiency and sales realization. According to Mr. Nikola Micic, IT Manager in Alca Trading, “the main benefits of QlikView are:

  • Single database that integrates multiple data sources and represents the foundation for comprehensive and in-depth analysis;
  • Definition and monitoring of key performance indicators (KPI);
  • Quick change of reporting parameters allows users to perceive the same data from different perspectives, in different environments and different time periods
  • Detailed graphic representation of the results allows simple, yet profound data analysis and leads to new discoveries;
  • Mobility, possibility to use QlikView on mobile devices guarantees immediate access to all relevant parameters and performance indicators.
