RADNOR, Pa.

Qlik® (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in visual analytics, today announced that Eternit-Werke Ludwig Hatschek AG, a leading Austrian manufacturer of roof and façade coverings, has selected QlikView® to drive increased visibility into its sales performance and supply chain data with help from Qlik Elite Solution Partner, Data GmbH.

QlikView provides a visually appealing, user-friendly business intelligence (BI) solution that gives Eternit the transparency, consistency, and effective information they need across their various management levels and divisions. The QlikView solution complements their SAP® ERP system with a comprehensive BI solution that allows users to map data of different product groups into a single platform while ensuring scalability and speed. This detailed view of its SAP data, including sales and revenue per customer, enables Eternit to detect changes in customer behavior and discover trends in the product life cycle almost immediately.

“With QlikView, we have found a solution that not only provides a single source of truth, but also encourages use due to its visual nature. Now, anyone can talk concretely about the state of our business,” said Daniel Müller, Head of Controlling and Logistics, Eternit-Werke. “Previously, it required two hours to prepare data from our ERP system and today with Qlik it takes less than 10 minutes.”

“With a goal of making data analytics accessible to a variety of business users in their organization, Eternit needed a solution that was flexible, scalable, and easy to use,” said James Fisher, vice president of global product marketing at Qlik. “With QlikView their business users get a consolidated view of their data, regardless of where the information is sourced, and have the ability to freely explore their data to unlock key insights from various parts of the business.”

In the future, QlikView will be used in other areas of Eternit’s business such as marketing campaign performance.
