Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company Deploys QlikTech Business Intelligence Software

"QlikView is exactly the tool we have been looking for" said Bryan Allen, assistant vice president of Business MIS Services for Colonial. "We need BI powerful enough to support the sophisticated analytical needs of our business analysts, yet easy and intuitive enough to be used by non-technical independent sales representatives across the country. QlikView is the only reporting and analysis solution we've seen with that sort of flexibility."

Colonial' sales representatives will use QlikView for sales reporting and analysis functions to help them generate higher sales and to identify and close new accounts faster. Colonial's ustomer Service Department is currently using QlikView to analyze its policyholder call center data to enhance Colonial's customer service experience. Colonial anticipates a broad array of future QlikView applications by analysts performing financial and business analysis.

Powered by QlikTech's patented Associative Query Logic (AQL) technology, QlikView's innovative architecture eliminates the costly and time consuming process of designing, developing and maintaining OLAP cubes and, in most cases, also the need to build and maintain separate data warehouses and data marts. This enables companies to develop and deploy fully functional business intelligence and performance management applications in days rather than the customary weeks or months, resulting in greater flexibility, faster ROI, and lower cost of ownership for enterprises. An intuitive, easy-to-use interface makes it possible to spread the power of QlikView through all levels of an organization.

"Corporations are beginning to see the value of business intelligence and analysis beyond its traditional use by power users" said Christer Berg, president and CEO of QlikTech Inc. "The benefits of improved reporting and analysis can stretch throughout any enterprise, no matter how large. Colonial is an excellent example of a company looking to leverage the power of QlikView in new and exciting ways, both for internal power users, managers and executives, and for external, independent agents."
