CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY:

AMS modernised its analytics by moving from QlikView to Qlik Sense

Advanced Medical Solutions modernised its analytics by moving from QlikView to Qlik Sense. Its Qlik Sense app is now a business critical reporting tool and the single source of all its sales, budget and forecast data.

 

Advanced Medical Solutions (AMS) develops and manufactures innovative and technologically advanced products for wound care, including surgical dressings and adhesives for wound closure. Climber started working with AMS in 2013 when it started using QlikView to track its sales data. We built dashboards for its sales team of 50 users, which helped them understand what their data was telling them so they could make informed decisions.

However, in 2018 due the growth of the business and the increase in the number of system users, AMS decided that the apps it was using in QlikView were starting to look dated and had limitations when accessed on some devices, so it decided to modernise its analytics and move to Qlik Sense. It approached us to lead the transition and suggest improvements to ensure that it could take advantage of the opportunities available within Qlik Sense.

THE APPROACH

As we already had access to all of AMS’ existing apps we could speed up the transition process and check the performance of each script as we went. This meant we could improve the run-time and make the process more efficient. As the dashboards were being used across the business by multiple users, we felt it was important to keep a similar look and feel in Qlik Sense so users would feel a sense of familiarity. However, we also focused on showing them how Qlik Sense could provide better functionality. It took two months to rebuild all the dashboards in Qlik Sense and there was great communication between Climber and AMS throughout to ensure a smooth handover from our developers to the end users.

THE RESULTS

Prior to using Qlik Sense, AMS already had a fairly good idea of its data and how to make informed decisions from it. However, after moving to Qlik Sense usage of the dashboards increased and there was much more excitement within the business about the impact business intelligence could have. We also provided the development team within AMS with the knowledge and skills to be self-sufficient, putting them in control of their data and the dashboards they want to develop. By migrating to Qlik Sense, and now with approximately 200 users, AMS has the assurance that they can use business intelligence to drive decisions more easily and their users are empowered to explore their data in new ways.

 

“The Qlik Sense Sales App has become a business critical reporting tool as the single source of all our sales, budget and forecast data. The ability to combine complex datasets, but present the data through a simple user interface, is very popular with our users and has driven the adoption across the AMS group.”

Simon Coates, IT Director
