The partnership will allow the German-based online bicycle and outdoor adventure equipment specialist to develop a uniform view of data from its Web-based ERP system generated from its 30 self-owned e-commerce platforms. The agreement will enable internetstores to use Yellowfins BI solution to effectively track and streamline cross-departmental business procedures and resources across its multiple online shops throughout Europe.
Internetstores Head of IT, Burkhard Wagner, said that Yellowfin was chosen as a replacement to error-prone Excel-based reporting and cumbersome custom analytic queries.
Previously, our IT department was forced to build time-consuming and hard-to-maintain custom analytic functions to interrogate separate disparate islands of data, said Wagner.Not only was this process inefficient, it wasnt able to provide a complete view of our data assets from across our various data stores. This lack of visibility meant that important data was often unavailable for reporting purposes, making it very difficult to produce accurate ad-hoc queries to understand profit margins or performance of individual products.
As a wholly Web-based platform, Yellowfin has enabled us to create a single trustworthy view of our entire ERP system. We are now able to easily track KPIs from internetstores 30-plus self-owned e-commerce platforms.
