Analytics and Dashboards

Energy & Utility companies trying to achieve long-term sustainable and profitable growth have to focus on critical success factors, including:

  • Achieving maximum return on assets while increasing margins and profitability
  • Maximizing supply chain efficiency while improving delivery accuracy
  • Improving order accuracy, on-time delivery, and customer retention
  • Understanding the business implications of strategic decisions

Still, reaching a consistent high level of operational performance is difficult due to many factors, such as distributed processes, disparate information from multiple sources, and uncontrolled operational and financial risks, all of which can lead to operational inefficiency and unpredictable costs, order fulfillment failures, lost opportunities, resulting in missed revenue and market share erosion. In addition, the inability to understand trends, profitability of market segments, customers, and products makes it difficult to implement new strategies.

Decision makers need an easier way to explore insights. SAP’s analytics tools help turn the flood of raw data companies have on hand into real competitive advantages.

Qnovate’s interactive dashboards are based on industry KPI’s (key performance indicators) and offer users personalized, drag-and-drop functionality and interactive gauges, charts, and widgets – for instant access to clear, understandable metrics. The same dashboards can also be used on mobile devices, for insights anywhere, anytime.
