Chemion is constantly expanding its storage capacities and equipment pool and investing in the skills of their employees. And top management needed to plan and control business development and implement targets more effectively. Chemion needed an integrated SAP solution since their internal business processes must run quickly and efficiently.
Chemion set a key strategic goal: to establish a central reporting platform that would offer standardized and ad hoc reports with the benefit of fully automated data extraction. To meet this goal the company selected a powerful combination of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) solutions and the SAP Data Services software.
Chemion introduced SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions and SAP Data Services software. With SAP Consulting, they implemented and launched the SAP solutions far faster than planned, and below budget. And employees in the IT and controlling departments could benefit from extensive user training and knowledge transfer at an early stage in the project.
Chemion can now run more detailed and efficient business analyses faster and at higher quality than ever before. They can identify developments such as sudden jumps in sales or unusual customer behavior patterns even earlier, allowing them to react in real time and make the necessary decisions to manage their business activities more effectively.
Users can now call up reports and key figures via the central reporting platform at any time. And executive managers can access an up-to-date overview of the company’s business situation. The SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards software aggregates the relevant key figures and analyses and displays the information as clear graphs in a user interface.
Chemion has already achieved a great deal, and processes for data extraction and KPI analyses are clearly faster and more efficient. But that’s not all. Now, the company wants to drill down even further into operational KPIs and is looking to obtain key data on inventories, warehouse utilization, inventory turnover, and even deployed resources.
