DeltaMaster client PASCOE wins Best Practice Award

BARC has awarded its Best Practice Award 2015 for Business Intelligence solutions in midsize companies to PASCOE Naturmedizin, a company specializing in natural medicine. The prize-winning enterprise BI solution is based on DeltaMaster from Bissantz & Company.

Making an effect

André Ratz, Commercial Director at PASCOE Naturmedizin, accepted the award on behalf of the company and his team. The prize-winning project focused on increasing the effectiveness of BI within the company. The project began as more employees started analyzing KPIs in detail and using them to make decisions. “BI should stick a finger in the wounds, so to speak, and pinpoint the places to take action,” Ratz explained. He also wanted to shorten the length of meetings and use performance indicators to make them more productive. He achieved these goals using innovative applications with the BI software DeltaMaster, which PASCOE has used over the years for standard reporting.

Performance monitors

The company has installed information monitors in central locations throughout the company. These monitors permanently present KPIs either as pure information displays (Infoboards) or through interactive touchscreens (Smartboards). The Infoboards distributed throughout the company are constantly updated and stimulate discussions. The Smartboards, in contrast, enable users to analyze the displayed KPIs and examine variances in detail. Thanks to Pivot Navigation, a unique usage concept in DeltaMaster, users can retrieve further information on their own exactly where it originates – even at the production line or other areas where little interaction is possible.

Clear signals

DeltaMaster feeds these performance monitors with information from the same data warehouse that its iPhone app and Windows installations use. For Ratz, the key is informing all employees at an early stage and automatically keeping that information up to date. “This allows us to instantly experience the individual contribution to the company’s overall success,” he explained. “The data-driven signals in DeltaMaster pinpoint the priorities. That shortens the search for underlying reasons – with the result that people spend more time discussing possible actions. This has shortened the duration of the average meeting by a good third. For that reason alone, the project has already paid off after a few months.

Excellent solutions

BARC, an independent research institute and consultancy based in Würzburg, Germany, has awarded the Best Practice Award Business Intelligence and Analytics for the twelfth time. This prize, which is awarded in the categories for midsize and enterprise solutions, honors projects for outstanding business benefits and the exemplary procedures in implementing and enhancing data warehouse and Business Intelligence solutions. A jury of experts selected the finalists after having evaluated all entries based on their implemented technologies, business concepts, user friendliness, cost-performance ratios and innovation strength. The final round took place during the BARC Congress from 10 - 11 November in Würzburg. Dr. Carsten Bange, Founder and Managing Director at BARC, awarded the trophies during the event’s evening program.

Information culture

Michael Nordhausen, Sales Director at Bissantz & Company, congratulated the winners. “PASCOE has been a client of ours for many years and has long freed itself from Excel chaos. Instead of just stopping there, it persistently worked to improve the operational effects of BI. This award-winning project attests to an exemplary information culture at PASCOE!”
