QlikView was successfully installed at the Dr. Loges pharmaceutical company within two weeks. It allows the drug manufacturer to obtain a clear and up-to-date presentation of results at the purchaser level, providing the basis for future strategic decisions.
According to Torsten Rustmann, the commercial director of Dr. Loges, significant staffing and time was previously required in order to prepare individual key figures. Other challenges when implementing QlikView were:
With QlikView, we have the option of analysing our business, not only by type of cost but also with the cost object in view simultaneously. And we are able to do that without having to derive the figures from Excel in an expensive and insecure manner.
Previously we had to ask: "How do I generate the numbers?" Today we can focus on the actual key question: "What do the numbers tell us?"
Obtaining direct, experience-based information about the solution from users in various industries was ideal for our decision-making and it finally convinced us that QlikView was exactly the right product for us.
