Business Intelligence Tool for Trading – KPI for Distribution Industry

The enterprise that competes in the trade and distribution industry must focus on governmental and regulatory compliance and provide open trade channels, free-flowing distribution and shipping processes and fast, accurate billing, shipping documentation and customer, partner and supplier communication. The enterprise may participate in global import and export activities; it may manage a business to business (B2B) marketing and sales effort, manage a dealer network or manage stock and inventory, distribution and other supply chain factors across continents or international boundaries. If the enterprise is to be successful, it must carefully manage competition

and delicately balance profit margins with optimised products and services and processes.

If your business competes in the trade industry, you face the constant challenge of juggling expanding product portfolios, managing multifaceted supply chain with distinct service requirements and ensuring compliance with strict regulations and reporting requirements. Your users are reliant on accurate, timely market research, effective, targeted marketing campaigns and an efficient distribution network and sales force to execute the enterprise strategy and achieve targets and plans.

Today’s global competition adds a complex component to the trade market with increased consolidation and competition, new growth opportunities and sales channels, and the critical necessity for efficient supply chain and cost optimisation.

To compete in this environment, your team must establish and leverage a powerful combination of technology, business intelligence and results management and deliver quality and value with every shipment and for every customer.

"ElegantJ Business Intelligence played a pivotal role helping my team tap into the huge amount of timekeeping data our firm had assiduously collected over several years, but which we had extracted very little value from. We realised that with ElegantJ BI we could gain an insight into our business performance and trends which we were then able to present to Management in a digestible form. As a direct result of our analysis using ElegantJ BI we were able to ensure that scarce resources were ring-fenced for critical operations whilst also freeing up resource from other areas to improve productivity and allocate costs more accurately across our operations. ElegantJ BI proved an excellent partner, listening to and taking our feedback on-board, then delivering changes and improvements to the product."
