What is our primary use case?
Our primary uses for Qlik Sense are sales statistics, order intake, invoicing during a period of 10 years, and customer statistics. Our statistics are grouped by segment, country, business unit, customer, and customer groups.
Statistics are used to compare costs considering sales price and margin.
We conduct a complete review of the sales statistics including KPI and Highlights, following all of the information available on the order, customer, and product.
We cover all requirement requests by the sales department and generate reports on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
How has it helped my organization?
This solution allows us to use a simple drag-and-drop interface to create flexible, interactive data visualizations. We can explore data with smart visualizations that automatically adapt to the parameters we set. There is no need for developers, data scientists, or designers.
This has allowed us to turn our team into creators. They maximize their skills and experience by letting them focus on the things they are best at, instead of setting up data. By unifying data sources we gain a complete view of information, without gaps, and make it easier to discover hidden insights.
What is most valuable?
The most valuable feature is the interface for the end-user. Each end-user can create their own pages and customizations. This frees up IT resources to work on other problems.
Qlik Sense is intuitive and very easy to use.
The speed at which you get information is impressive. In one click, you have the answer to your question. That's important for the business but also for the user experience.
What needs improvement?
We want the next version of this solution to be cloud-based so that each user can access it from anywhere in the world with their phone, tablet, or computer without a VPN connection. This is very important for us because we have an initiative called 'Cloud first', and in five years, all software must be in the cloud and easy to access. Essentially, we want to stop using a physical server and avoid on-premises maintenance.
For how long have I used the solution?
We have been using Qlik Sense for three years.
