Scottish system integration specialist, Cooper Software has been chosen by Eminox, the designer and manufacturer of stainless steel exhaust and emission control systems for bus, truck, rail and off-highway vehicles, to roll out QlikView, the latest and most sophisticated business intelligence and reporting software.
With 200 employees based at its Gainsborough head office and with other offices throughout the UK, a large amount of complex data is produced daily. The sheer amount of data created, made it difficult to convert the information upon which critical decisions could be made easily. The company needed a data management system that not only allowed users to consume and analyse data faster and easier, but also one that provided visually interactive reports that could be accessed on any mobile device.
As a Qlik Solution Provider, Cooper Software recommended QlikView based on its ease of use, speed and superior data visualisation and rendering features.
"QlikView is able to drive data analysis to another level and it uncovers data trends like no other business reporting platform, a key reason why Gartner recently recognised them as a leader in their field. The highly visual dashboards on QlikView and up-to-the-minute personalised reports from multiple data sources make decision making for a business more efficient with less scrutiny involved": said Frank Cooper, Founder and Managing Director, Cooper Software.
Cooper Software worked with all areas in our business to conduct a full health check of our systems, resulting in QlikView being recommended. Once the decision was made the Cooper Software team quickly implemented the software and within weeks our Sales and Finance teams were benefiting from using our new-found information insight, while being freed up by not having to manually prepare and manipulate lots of spreadsheets, said Eminox.
Alex Mills, IS Manager for Eminox said: "With limited in-house experience of data management and reporting, we had expected the project to take a lot longer than it actually took. Cooper Software provided an excellent service and the QlikView reports provided met our expectations and return on investment targets. Cooper Software's incremental approach ensured that we were able to get key reports up and running quickly and we have confidence that we now have a core reporting engine, which we can easily build upon to get even more value out of the information stored in our systems."
