standard designs and consecutive numbering, to complex computer-controlled
systems with check digits - ZEISER offers state-of-the-art numbering machines and
contactless DoD-UV-Ink Jet systems for printing alphanumeric characters and
barcodes in various sizes on high-security documents such as banknotes, revenue
stamps, passports, etc.
Zeiser has set
itself the goal of making internal data handling accessible, intuitive, and standardised for
all areas of the company. In the past, evaluations were created in the
departments themselves, which meant that there was no uniform reporting. In addition,
further processing of the data generated by the IBM Cognos TM1 database system
was very time-consuming and could only be carried out with the help of their IT department. By
introducing Qlik Sense, the employees of the different departments are now able to create
and retrieve the reports independently.
process for the right analytics software solution was initiated by the management.
Together with BE-terna, an established business software solution provider and
expert in data
analytics, the company-specific requirements were analysed and market-leading
tools were compared. After only two months, Qlik Sense was chosen as the
winning solution and the implementation was planned. The business intelligence
solution was particularly persuasive
because of its flexibility in combining different data
sources. Afterwards, the desired reports can easily be created using the
Thanks to the
intuitive performance of Qlik Sense, Zeiser's internal BI team was able to build up a
broad knowledge of data preparation and reporting after a minimal training
period. As a result, all future reporting requirements can be implemented
independently after a very short introduction and training period, whereas this used to
take several days prior to the introduction of Qlik Sense.
We now achieve
time savings of over 80% in controlling, and can analyse more than twice as many of our

started in autumn 2019 with an
initial presentation by BE-terna consultants. Siegfried
Heiss was enthusiastic about it:
astonishing that BE-terna used our data in the presentation. As a result of this, we
could directly see what would be possible in the future.
As a result, Zeiser decided to use
Qlik Sense in an evaluation phase with productive live data, and the intuitive
handling was also a persuasive
factor. The first staff training sessions were held
just one month later to familiarise future users of the analysis platform with
the applications. Since January 2020, Qlik Sense has been actively used by
several divisions at Zeiser and has been continuously expanded. The strong
connections and data volumes is a particular advantage.
uses several apps directly in Qlik Sense and is thus able to cover evaluations
for various business areas. For Zeiser, both late deliveries and excessively early deliveries can result in loss of revenue. With the new BI solution, it is possible to keep a
close eye on suppliers' on-time delivery performance by updating the reports
daily and thus evaluating the suppliers in this respect. Zeiser can also monitor consumption
figures and stock turnover closely thanks to the intuitive reports. In the
sales department, ordered stocks used to be recorded manually on a weekly basis using Excel
lists. Thanks to Qlik Sense, these are generated daily at the touch of a
button, which has significantly reduced the time required and increased the
timeliness of the data. Not only
is it possible to view the current key figures, but
also to compare them with previous periods.
Qlik Sense not only fulfils
the requirements of the departments, but management is also enthusiastic about
the new solution
says Siegfried Heiss. As a next step, the system
is planned to be expanded to include purchasing, and
the number of users and thus the number of licenses will be increased.
Since Mr. Alois
Zeiser founded ZEISER in 1955, the company has specialized in the production of
high precision numbering systems. In 1991, the company merged with US-based
Atlantic Control Systems to form Atlantic Zeiser. In the mid 1990s, with the
increasing demand of variable serialization, Atlantic Zeiser added non-impact
inkjet technology to its portfolio. The new digital inkjet technology was not
only used in the security printing field, but also deployed for card
personalization and packaging printing applications. Since 2002, the company
has been a part of Switzerland-based Orell Füssli Group, the official printer
of the Swiss banknote. After the sale of the digital printing and card business
to Coesia SpA, the company is now again focused on supplying the security
printing industry with impact and non-impact serialization solutions. In the
same course, Atlantic Zeiser was renamed to ZEISER.
