Know your customer
The client was integrating two business units and the complexity of working over multiple geographical regions had a big impact on the quality of the business reporting.
We identified two major issues that would be highly difficult, but useful for the business to address with respect to the business targets:
Shipment overview (On-Time in Full delivery)
Proof of Value
We selected two geographical regions, based on relevance and scale. Together with the business, we analysed the regional reports and how these are created and maintained.
Due to the lack of in-house knowledge on the lineage and calculations, we re-engineered and consolidated the reports into one new, aligned and global dashboard per topic, based on the raw data.
Together with the data engineering team, we put both dashboards into production with periodically automated workflows on the central data platform that are future-proof.
Business alignment between regions on definitions of concepts related to inventory or shipments
Fully automated data workflows on the client’s central data platform
One automated dashboard per topic
One version of the truth, with transparent data lineage
Better visibility and understanding of the inventory and shipments
More management impact due to higher availability and frequency of reports
Improved tracking and management of business targets
Elimination of manual efforts reduces chance of human errors
We are passionate about creating true business value for our clients. The core of our cooperation is based on a clear understanding of the business needs/pains, but more importantly also the ambitions.
