Whitworths adds cloud analytics to recipe
Healthy food maker Whitworths is transforming its business operations with cloud analytics
Whitworths is scaling and rolling out Qlik’s cloud-based data analytics platform to improve access to real-time analytics.
The move will give Whitworths’ employees, suppliers, and partners worldwide an opportunity to access up-to-date, accurate information across business operations through Qlik Cloud and drive more informed decision-making.
Whitworths has been a Qlik customer since 2014 when they started using QlikView, implemented by Qlik partner Catalyst BI. This was Whitworths’ initial deployment of data analytics, and the company benefited from improved production planning, scheduling, and inventory control across its operations.
Whitworths has now taken the next step in its data journey by moving to Qlik Cloud for more advanced analytics capabilities. The move to cloud analytics will play a key role in Whitworths’ continued innovation as it embarks on its journey towards Active Intelligence, where continuous intelligence with context-rich, real-time analytics will proactively offer information for action in the business moment.
“Armed with Qlik Cloud, we are moving closer to becoming a truly data-driven organisation, where our teams take informed actions to drive real business outcomes,” said Jason Simpson, business analyst at Whitworths. “Qlik is helping us make strategic decisions across the business; from informing our decisions on when to move the manufacturing of goods to the UK or Turkey, to empowering us to pool inventory and increase volume we can offer retailers during critical times via real-time stock reporting.”
