Company Background
 

Industry - Distribution 

Technology - Business Intelligence, Data Warehouse, Dashboards


Industry leading distributor that distributes OEM and replacement products to independent businesses and online retailers across the United States. Was in the process of transitioning from private ownership to private equity firm with aggressive short term growth strategies and a priority on mergers and acquisitions.

 

Business Issue

This small business was experiencing tremendous growth and had just transferred ownership to a private equity firm.  To maintain their status and growth trajectory, they needed access to their data and better reporting capabilities that their current systems were not capable of producing or did so too slowly.  A tool to analyze costs, pricing and overall profitability needed to be introduced. 

As sales continued to grow and an aggressive acquisition strategy was introduced, management needed a more reliable way of capturing their transactional data and information from various systems to effectively run the business and report to investors. 
 

Vizion's Solution for Client Success

This project’s success lay in the ability to rapidly extract and cleanse the existing database into a highly scalable data warehouse and deploy an industry-leading analysis and reporting tool to provide access to relevant data.

The implementation of our  Vizion360® Sales, Orders and Service Suite allowed this organization to access and use data through scorecards, dashboards and customizable reports. In some cases  the solution exposed data that they didn’t even know existed and provided a platform to easily and quickly integrate future acquisitions' data and information.

 

Results
  • The new multi-dimensional data warehouse provides our client with powerful analytics to make more fully informed business decisions and the ability to perform highly granular, customer-level analyses.
  • Allowed management to effectively monitor the organizations day to day activities through scorecards and dashboards by customer and by product.
