Actionable Intelligence for Operations Managers

The existing reporting from Microsoft Access database was just not working out for a multi-plant auto-parts manufacturer. It was inefficient, unwieldy and error-prone. The new CEO quickly realized that he was lacking the organization-wide visibility to their operations, sales, purchases, inventory and financials, critical for turning things around. He reached out to IQubz, Microsoft BI partner, for a Manufacturing Business Intelligence solution. Whether plant-specific or corporate-wide, he wanted his plant managers and senior managers to be looking at the same information, that is consistent, accurate, and presented clearly and efficiently.

With easy-to-navigate dashboards, comprehensive scorecards, and familiar analysis tools, IQubz Manufacturing BI helps plan, monitor and act to improve process efficiency, reduce operational waste/scrap, improve product quality, reduce manufacturing costs, effectively negotiate with vendors and present winning quotes to customers.
