Webcast: Turn manufacturing risks around with better business insight
You and your counterparts need to track, analyze and make decisions against a multitude of business factors. Wouldn't it be ideal to understand your customer demand signals, commodity prices, supplier viability, inventory turnover, transport costs and operational performance in real time?
Manufacturing is a complex business. Without the tools to improve real-time visibility across virtually every business function, it can be a risky one. You and your counterparts - in Production, Supply Chain, Purchasing and Service and Support - need to track, analyze and make decisions against a multitude of business factors. Wouldn't it be ideal to understand your customer demand signals, commodity prices, supplier viability, inventory turnover, transport costs and operational performance in real time?
Join Sidney Hill as he welcomes Todd Graham, Applications Development Manager at US Synthetic Corporation (part of Dover Corporation). Mr. Graham shares experiences how business analysis software made a measurable impact for his enterprise. US Synthetic needed valid, accessible and useful information at all levels within the organization as well as flexibility for reporting demands and ad hoc analysis. Leveraging the product QlikView, they empowered their teams with the tools and data to make decisions.
The Webcast illustrates how innovative business analysis solutions can:
-Improve customer-centric business agility for "demand-pull" or "to-order" manufacturing
-Identify and mitigate inventory and purchasing exposures across the supply chain
-Optimize production cycle times and yield through increased line utilization and improved quality
-Improve the after-sale customer service experience to drive customer success
Craig Fairfield, Vice President of Market Development from QlikTech, also joins to offer insight, and highlights how diversified industrial manufacturers like Amcor, Eaton and Sandvik achieved measurable business value in only weeks by putting QlikView to work. Get insight from a recently released IDC report which summarizes the findings from customers on the value of QlikView - manufacturing customers cited a 12% increase in revenue, 17% decrease in operating costs, and 33% increase in employee productivity.
