Sara Lee Corporation Improves its Planning and Forecasting with QlikView

"QlikView has improved our sales and forecasting analysis significantly" said Gary Kahler, Director of Sales & Operations Planning for Sara Lee Household and Body Care - USA. "We now have a powerful yet easy-to-use performance management solution that brings interactive planning and analysis to our employees' desktops. In addition to better analysis capabilities, QlikView saves us more than $35,000 per year in reduced archiving and printing costs alone."

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.

"Sara Lee H&BC is an excellent example of how QlikView can be quickly deployed throughout an organization, providing a wide range of users with better ways to track, manage and optimize their business" said Christer Berg, president and CEO of QlikTech Inc. "We are delighted with the benefits Sara Lee has gained from using QlikView and excited about developing our relationship further"
