PR – The award winning Business Intelligence solutions is entering the Czech market – the first implementation of BI4Dynamics into the GASTON Company
Brno, 22nd September 2009 – CCV Information systems has executed the first domestic installation of the comprehensive Business Intelligence solution BI4Dynamics. The implementation has been carried out in a company called GASTON, the biggest importer of canned food into Central and Eastern Europe, in the record-setting time frame of a single day. BI4Dynamics is internationally recognized manager information system for Microsoft DynamicsTM.
CCV Information systems, one of the leading domestic implementators of Microsoft DynamicsTM systems and a prominent provider of electronic data interchange, has strengthened its service portfolio of comprehensive ERP solutions, by adding this very successful and sophisticated management information system. During the last December CCV Information systems has become a contract partner of the BI4Dynamics system producer (Slovenian company NPS Group, the major supplier of Microsoft DynamicsTM in the Adriatic area), and has thus acquired the position of BI4Dynamics distributor on the Czech and Slovak markets.
Implementing Business Intelligence in a single day
Premiere implementation of this internationally award-winning solution was executed in July into the GASTON company, that imports canned food into a range of European countries under its own brand "GIANA" and at the same time acts as an exclusive representative of other prominent European producers and supplies the market with their brands as well. BI4Dynamics is a specialized Business Intelligence solution for ERP system Microsoft DynamicsTM, which at the same time enables the user to use its integral reporting and analytical tools. The mutual core of the two systems is their shared data warehouse. Moreover the implementation process from start to finish went very swiftly, in the time frame of a single day, including configuration, data transfer and user training. Instead of several months of preparation for a Business Intelligence project built "from scratch", GASTON gained an affordable solution that brings its added value immediately to the management of the company.
The experience with the system, after two months of its use, is commented upon by Yvona Štěrbová, economic manager of GASTON: "Due to our ability to distribute goods into around two tens of countries in the area of Central and Eastern Europe we are constantly approached by more and more producers with demands for distribution of their own products. The improved efficiency of our work therefore means that we are capable of better observation of the demand on the market and thus eliminate redundant stock. It is therefore vital for our company to have a perfect supervision over sales purchases and above all the existing stock, which can be optimized if we are able to use the correct and immediately accessible information about them." She also adds: "The supplied BI4Dynamics solution fulfils without exception all the criteria. All analysis are clearly displayed in the well known environment of MS Excel and it is therefore not necessary to open the ERP system to access it."
"Whole range of business systems is flooded with data which is difficult to evaluate correctly by the key workers. This in fact poses a certain risk in this volatile era. High-capacity analytical and evaluative tools therefore constitute a comparative advantage.“ commented Alexandr Danovski, BI4Dynamics product manager in CCV Information systems on the reasons for the implementation of the system and adds: "The key advantage of BI4Dynamics is without a doubt its price, which is significantly lower than with other comparable solutions produced by other companies on the market, which at the same time does not compromise any of the aspects of this high-end solution."
Data warehouse, data intelligence and analytical tool all-in-one
BI4Dynamics NAV is a high-capacity and comprehensive Business Intelligence solution a Microsoft platform, which contains a data warehouse with business models, ETL processes for acquiring the data from the database of the ERP system and its transformation, OLAP cubes, automatic procedures for daily actualization of the data and pre-prepared outputs in one of the most used client's tools (Microsoft Office Excel, Cognos, Panorama NovaView etc.). This solution is entirely open and enables adding of modules with regards to the domains of user's interests. In its basic version it covers the most used application domains of Microsoft Dynamics NAV such as analysis of purchase, sale, stock, liability, claims or major financial analysis.
BI4Dynamics is more of a business not a technological solution: "Managers do not have to understand the OLAP technology or know how to programme. Reports are easily created with the use of the so-called "drag and drop" function," explains Danovski and adds: "To provide the client with absolute certainty at the time of choice, they were allowed to use the processing of the pilot project with the creation of testing interface using the company's data."
BI4Dynamics was awarded as being the best Business Intelligence solution in the region of Central and Eastern Europe on the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in 2008 in Houston.
