Company with ambitious plans for growth and supporting that growth will require the ability to inform key business decisions. The company’s legacy system had proved a bottleneck to this ambition, with a laborious database that was both cumbersome and frustrating to utilise. Not only did the established legacy system operate at a pace which caused business hurdles, it presented strategic risk through the need for large elements of manual processes that generated significant exposure to human error.
Battling for actionable business insight
Businesses were frustrated by the lack of detailed data and siloed functionality of the legacy systems. Utilising aggregated data limited the opportunity for informed decision making, with no key insight into critical sales analytics such as sell-in and sell-out. Furthermore, teams were hampered by a lack of collaborative ability in the software, meaning operations often happened in silos without shared data or teamwork.
These established challenges saw businesses looking for an alternative business analytics suite that could deliver the insight required to inform key business decisions. The goal was to adopt a solution which could deliver real-time insight and communication, while enhancing opportunity through rapid processing and easy accessing of key business data.
