Global retailers using Qlik to drive more value from data

Global Retailers are embracing  Qlik end-to-end data analytics platform to respond to fast changing market  conditions.

Retailers are rapidly adopting Qlik as part of their effort to  maximise the value of real-time data for decision-making.

According to the SaaS company, retailers have been eager to realise Qlik’s vision of Active Intelligence, which is the ability to leverage real time, up-to-date information to inform decision-making and trigger downstream business events  to capitalise on every business moment in rapidly changing market conditions over the last two quarters.

“With Qlik, we are providing a live view of performance to our teams and customers in each of the business units,” said David Moran, Supply Chain Director, KFC Europe. “This insight,  accountability and transparency has been very powerful in establishing confidence in the  capabilities of our organization, and is the foundation of our vision to both protect and grow the  brand with a world-class supply chain.”

“Fostering an analytics culture is where Qlik is a game-changer,” said Elizabeth Dalton,  Director at Luxottica Retail. “The rich variety of visualisations available in Qlik leads to  immediate data exploration and insight generation, which eases our users away from their static  reports.”

The SaaS provider said that the diversity of companies now using Qlik’s data and analytics platforms represent some of the most well known global fast-food franchises, apparel and accessory companies, as well as home furnishing retailers including Dorel Industries (designers and manufacturers of sport, home and juvenile products), Burger King (the American-based multinational fast-food franchise), Kendra Scott (a leading fashion-lifestyle brand, specialising in jewelry, home decor, gifts and beauty).

Additional retailers using Qlik products include: Rapide Brow & Lash Bar, in Sweden, Fenwick,  and Travis Perkins, in the UK; REI, Best Buy, and Walgreens, in the United States; the Asia  Pacific division of Chanel, Chow Tai Fook, in Hong Kong, as well as Malabar Group of  Companies, in India, among others.

“More and more retail companies are shifting from passive to active business intelligence  models, which emphasize the need for real-time data to inform decision-making,” said Poornima  Ramaswamy, Executive Vice President, Global Solutions and Partners at Qlik. “Active  Intelligence, realised through our end-to-end platform, drives performance improvements and  value across our retail customers’ organisations by bringing the right data and insights to  decision makers when it’s most relevant and impactful.”
