From Insights to Action: Taking a closer look at the Self-Service and Finance Vizlib extensions

If you didn’t catch the second webinar of our series exploring Vizlib value-added extensions, here’s a run-down of what you missed. We’re big fans of Vizlib extensions because they add immediate value to Qlik Sense with advanced capabilities, functionality and new chart types. Everything is customisable as you can control every setting and integrate it with your brand or interface with no coding required.

The second in our webinar series with Vizlib took place on 25th March. This time we looked at the benefits that the Self-Service and Finance Vizlib extensions can bring to your Qlik Sense applications. Our Managing Director of Climber UK, James Sharp, was joined by Michael Nordstrom, VP of Pre-sales and Enablement at Vizlib.

Three steps to engaged and data literate users

Michael firstly explained how the Finance extension offers the most presentable way to deliver financial reports. He ran through a demo app to show how the Finance extension can increase user adoption and engagement with data in three simple steps.

  1. Interaction: The extension enables users to interact freely with data by switching dimensions and drilling-down into the data sets.
  2. Visualisation: Once users are happy exploring the data, the visualisations in the extension make it much easier for them to find discrepancies.
  3. Collaboration: Users can add commentary and communicate directly within their financial report, which cuts out the need to send it round stakeholders for feedback, saving a lot of time.

Super flexible self-service

The Self-Service extension allows users to explore more complex data, which increases their understanding and helps them to make better decisions.

The custom report will generate a chart based on the dimensions in the source data. Users can switch between different visualisations which brings greater flexibility and change dimensions, add notes to fields and anything else they want to do. The custom report even uses voice recognition to display the data or visualisations users want to see.

Michael finished the session by demonstrating how flexible self-service can be by showing a report that compared the design of multiple cars. Each car was displayed in a tile, which can completely be tailored to include images, text and various visualisations. It was a great way of showing how users can compare data in multiple ways that are interactive and fun.
