Operating in a highly regulated industry worth £1.8 billion, Scottish Sea Farms must always have readily available and reportable data across a number of business areas including, finance, quality management, production, product safety and traceability and health and safety. Having robust systems and solutions in place for storing and analysing data is essential. The company was striving for better data visualisation and wanted to be able to use the data they held to gain deeper insights to understand how they could take effective action by way of making improvements to processes.
“QlikView made it quicker and easier to access and view information relating to all areas of our business. We can now easily report on these and have the ability to use this data to make necessary recommendations for improvements. As a QlikView Partner, Cooper Software proved invaluable at recommending the best solution for the needs of our business.”
