Igarle and Qlik celebrate the 2015 Qlik Tour in Bilbao

Igarle – Qlik’s benchmark partner in northern Spain – highlights the new features of the products from Qlik and presents the success stories that resulted from their use at the companies Pernod Ricard Bodegas and Giroa-Grupo Veolia.

The interesting conference, which formed part of the ‘Seeing the Big Picture in your Data’ tour, was held at the Azkuna Centre on 20 October to focus on methods aimed at saving time in organisations. The event was attended by two companies at which Igarle has implemented Qlik solutions: Pernod Ricard Bodegas and Giroa-Grupo Veolia. The amount of time and money saved at the two companies, thanks to this solution, has been remarkable.

Pernod Ricard Bodegas, a company engaged in the commercialisation and distribution of wines and spirits from various wineries, began using QlikView in 2010 as a corporate BI tool in order to harness its potential for various areas of its business. In 2013, Igarle began working with Pernod Ricard to support its IT Department by standardising and giving structure to the developments made by the company. Today, the company can analyse incident response times, material costs, winery visits and even vineyard production levels, ripeness and wine quality.

Giroa, a subsidiary of Veolia in northern Spain and a leading energy services company, began working with QlikView because it needed to foster transparency with clients by providing them with the information processed by the company as part of its energy management service. It subsequently realised the potential benefits to be gained from the internal use of this information within the company. Today, the company uses this information for service control, energy management, maintenance management, meteorology and finances.

Thanks to the capabilities of QlikView and the experience of Igarle to integrate similar data sources and present the information in an easily understood manner, “we are able to offer a response to many requests for knowledge from our clients and also respond to many internal issues at our company that are related to those energy management contracts”, said Estibaliz Martínez de la Hidalga, Hubgrade Manager at Giroa-Grupo Veolia.

The conference concluded with a real demonstration of the new Qlik Sense product and control panels developed by experts at Igarle for a wide range of sectors, such as healthcare, tourism, the automotive industry, industry, logistics, etc…, all thanks to standardisation and the flexibility of these developments. Fran Manzano, Igarle Manager, said that, “with the eleven years of experience that Igarle has working with Qlik, when we talk about time saving, not only should the advantages provided by the tool itself for the analysis of information be taken into consideration but also the fact that the consultancy firm often anticipates requirements in each specific case. This also saves time, increases efficiency and, in short, improves the use of information by the company in question”.
