Powering Qlik Sense with
BizView planning

BizView 7.2 that just has been released, contains specific functionality that integrates BizView not only with Qlik, but now also with Qlik Sense.

BizView is a leading performance management software including powerful planning, forecasting and budgeting capabilities. Qlik Sense by Qlik, is a modern business intelligence software providing great data visualization of corporate data. With the release of 7.2 of BizView, it’s now possible to create a best-of-bread solution combining Qlik Sense and BizView.

Forecast or budget sales, market sizing, production, customer service activities, staffing or anything else within BizView. From simple spreadsheet-like input forms to advanced multi-company planning processes supported by BizView workflows. Visualize the result of the different planning processes using Qlik Sense with data from BizView combined with data from other data sources.

The integration with Qlik Sense give you the power to use Qlik Sense embedded within BizView. This makes it possible for the end-user to switch seamlessly between planning and analytics. If the user is for example forecasting sales for two specific markets in a BizView planning form, the user can open Qlik Sense within the BizView workspace showing data for the same two markets.

Lerums Story

When your main market changes rapidly, the choice of management tools will be instrumental in the turn-around process. Lerum, with 110 years in the fruit and berry product market in Norway, needed a tool to safe proof the changes in the market.

Lerum

The-Situation
Lerum was – and still is – one of the leading brands in Norway in the food and beverage sector. Fruit syrup and jam of the best quality. Natural like no others.

In a market with an ever-increasing competition, it was crucial for Lerum to quickly get the decisions for adapting to the market changes.

The challenge was to define, describe and develop both a production line and new products.

it was vital to uphold delivery to distributors during this process, and calculate the resources for the following year – based on no market review.

With Bizview Lerum could create a system that could retrieve numbers from both product development and campaigns, and present these numbers in one system.
The-Solution
With BizView, Lerum could create a system that would retrieve numbers from both product development and campaigns, and present these numbers in one system.

But equally important is that BizView’s structure and flexibility dramatically reduces the time of implementation. And with short time spans to react, these factors are crucial for any business as it was for Lerum.

With BizView they retrieved and estimated several important factors like, production, sales, inventory, product development and distribution. They also uncovered solutions that was more precise, how to simplify them and present them: BizView has a strong dashboard function where key performance indicators are easily accessed and read.

With BizView at hand Lerum could now see that co-acting numbers could give crucial information which was important for upholding their forecast security and steady turnover.

Lerum had a great success with implementing BizView and results are back to the level they anticipate. Lerum now has the tools for a great overview, and can track and monitor their key performance indicators for the future.
