Business Intelligence:
corporate information analysis, what-if simulation and consolidated budget

Business Intelligence models developed by Gruppo Sme.UP allow you to analyse business data, plan and simulate (what-if simulation), run the budgeting process, understand the information contained in the data available on different information systems and eventually make the most appropriate business decision.

The way we do our job

Qlik Sense® is a user-friendly Business Intelligence tool enabling quite simple drag-and-drop interfaces to create interactive and flexible data views. The noun “Sense” is used to emphasize the fact that QLik’s BI is as much as possible close to the natural behaviour of human beings. Qlik Sense is a self-service data visualization and discovery application allowing the users to give free play to their own sense and intuition to find the information they’re looking for.
Qlik Sense is fully “mobile”, which means that the application automatically resizes depending on the mobile device in use (authomatic resizing)

With QlikView® you can create custom and guided analytics applications. Thanks to its flexibility, QLik  Sense can be integrated with any business management system.
QlikView is a Business Intelligence referred to by Gartner Group as a market leader. The associated logic used to perform information analytics allows you to work on real data when it really matters, with no need to create a reservoir of information that may become obsolete.

The traditional role of a BI Advisor essentially consists in interpreting the customer requests for them to be translated into user-accessible applications. That’s why it is crucial for an Advisor to understand “what is important for a single company”, and eventually translate the requests into summary information.

In addition to the above “custom” approach we also have a  “standard” approach based on the creation of templates where we conveyed some of the best experiences ever had. Gruppo Sme.UP can therefore offer a ready-made template to be tailored only if specifically required by the customer so that a considerable time saving is achieved when implementing the project.

Qlik Sense® in small doses

  • User-friendly: by using drag-and-drop interfaces you can create interactive and flexible data views that automatically adapt to parameter and context changes.
  • Smart Search: to seek for and find complex information
  • Self-service BI: by using drag-and-drop you can create specific views, complex SQL queries and mergers Data integration with other tools: source data can be merged, whereas Qlik Sense can be integrated with any management software
  • Effective data view: you can obtain customized data views containing different perspectives that turn out to be more effective for decision-making
  • Mobile: you can work on your data content anywhere and from any device
  • Customization and Extension: thanks to open APIs, developers are able to extend, customize and integrate Qlik Sense into other applications
  • Shared History: free access to a share library of dashboards, templates, and case histories made available by other in-house users
  • Security: designed to get information and content from any device

  • The owner of a plastic gasket manufacturing company wanted the production performance to always be in the foreground.
    This could be achieved by implementing the OEE project. On the other hand, the improvement of some percentage points of the OEE index for all production lines has resulted in an equally significant increase in margin. The company owner proved to be satisfied about the project and asked us to implement a further project involving Qlik in order for the commercial budget to be linked with the production and machine capacity budgets.

  • A distribution company of luxury products with different stores based throughout Italy has been using Qlik Sense for a year now. The platform is being used to analyse the conversion rate (people entering the shop / people buying products) by store, by day of the week and by time slot. This made it possible for the company to schedule the optimal amount of staff required in the store and save on unnecessary costs accordingly. Within a year’s time the project was largely paid off.
