Case Study

Company Overview

Our customer is one of the largest ship management companies in Asia . The company has been entrusted with the management of over 20 ocean going ships of various companies in the Asia Pacific region.

Business Need

Our customer wanted to implement a comprehensive crew management system which could integrate well with existing Oracle applications and enhance their performance tracking mechanism by giving them detailed analysis on various parameters like cost of hiring ,cost of training,cost per vessel etc.

Solution Proposed and Implemented

We implemented QlikView which helped them to do the desired analysis on various parameters which was not being done earlier with the existing system. They had 2 different data sources -oracle financials and CMS system and implementation of QlikView helped them to extract data from both and perform analysis to know about critical issues like batch wise attrition rate,batchwise hiring cost etc.
