Qlik Supply Chain Analytics

Qlik Supply Chain Analytics helps you explore supply chain data in unprecedented ways. Analyze, visualize, and explore relationships between complex data sources, driving better business results and a competitive edge using Qlik Supply Chain Analytics. It allows you explore all of the data and the processes impacting your supply chain.

Qlik helps simplify the supply chain analytics, helping make new associations between once disparate systems to reveal hidden relationships. Data discovery dashboards and the scorecards can integrate large volumes of disparate data from many sources, while detailed visualizations reveal previously unseen trends and data associations.

Executive dashboards and the scorecards provide end-to-end visibility of supply chain performance across multiple functions and disciplines, allowing executives to make better, more informed decisions. Significantly, these capabilities elevate the priority of supply chain to the decision-makers at C-level.

Qlik dashboards provide executive visibility into the key areas of the business including sales, service and support, supply chain, production, quality and financial analysis. Qlik for Executive Insights apps empower both individuals and groups to make faster and better informed decisions by allowing them to:

  • Gain executive insight into the supply chain performance and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) across multiple dimensions
  • View and analyze both internal and external data in real-time, across multiple and different data sources as opposed to having to wait for pre-defined reports, which don’t support short term opportunity spotting and issue resolution
  • Provide full scalability across all the departments throughout the business to allow analysis and the exposing of unseen opportunities from the C-level down
  • Leverage secure mobile access to stay fully informed and take decisions on-the-go

Connect and manage your Qlik Supply Chain from end to end while increasing visibility, reducing risks, and optimizing operations.

Qlik Supply Chain Forecasting and Planning

Processes such as Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) and the Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) require collaboration both inside and outside the organization. They seek to plan supply chain by balancing the needs of all participants with the end result being a rationalized single plan for the coming period.

Sales and Operations Planning and Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment are both processes that are underpinned by data, therefore participants need access to information and insights from multiple sources to make informed and timely decisions.

Both internal and external data needs to be included in the processes. Qlik for Forecasting and Planning apps empower both individuals and groups to make faster and better informed decisions by allowing them to:

  • Access timely, accurate and the consistent data from multiple sources to drive and inform the process
  • Aggregate data and metrics using consistent definitions
  • Have clear visibility of the plan and the outcomes for executive meetings and onward communication through intuitive dashboards
  • Monitor and evaluate progress against the plan

Omni-Channel Analytics

Qlik is used by retailers to provide intelligence and insights across all shopping channels providing visibility into the sales, inventory, customer and supply chain processes.

With multiple data sources in the production environment the ability to consolidate these and allow flexible, user-controlled analysis to see the trends, gain insights and make discoveries is a critical differentiator of the QlikView Business Discovery Platform:

  • View and analyze data from disparate sources
  • Consolidate all the data types rapidly from disparate sources to create ‘what-if’ scenarios
  • Aggregate data and metrics using consistent definitions
  • Analyze the production trends, dynamics and Key Performance Indicators across multiple dimensions
  • Leverage secure mobile access to stay fully informed and take decisions on-the-go

Having control over the entire supply chain and being able to analyze trends using an intelligent system brings more value. We at Locus IT provide such Qlik SCM Analytics services including Qlik SCM training, Qlik SCM support and Qlik SCM implementation. For more information please contact us.
