Bulgarian consulting company Balkan Services implemented the Business Intelligence system QlikView in the manufacturer of tools and equipment for construction Sparky. The solution works for the needs of several companies in the group, and is used by the headquarters in Sofia, as well as by Sparky Power Tools in Germany. The project was implemented in less than three months and was completed in September.
The Business Intelligence system generates queries, reports and analyses of the financial operations at Sparky, and also gives information on the sales of the company - accounting statements, financial analyses, sales reports, management of inventory liquidity and others. The solution serves the need for timely information about financial audits. It is integrated and uses data from multiple business systems operating in Sparky, including TECHNOCLASS ERP with Oracle database, different systems and individually developed solutions, MS SQL database of the German financial - accounting system, XML, CSV, Excel and others. In addition, several specific QlikView applications were created for the needs of various departments in the company.
"When our team came across QlikView, we became familiar with the product and gradually got convinced in its advantages. We are pleased with the analytical capabilities that it gives us and with our cooperation with Balkan Services"- said Nikola Antonov, IT manager at Sparky.
