Better planning thanks to visualisation

The Austrian company ZETA is a leading system provider for tailor-made solutions in the biotech, pharmaceutical and food industries. For this technology supplier, planning and process monitoring are of particular importance when developing solutions for pharmaceutical production plants and production lines. To gain an advantage, ZETA relies on the know-how of BE-terna and the intuitive solutions of Qlik. Thus, the right decisions can also be made in the future.

Maximum success through good advice

Based on the existing ERP system Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a reporting and analysis platform tailored to the customer's requirements was designed and implemented.

During this project, the consulting team of BE-terna has shown how maximum success can be achieved through close cooperation - with different suppliers and external consulting firms

Georg Kowaschitz, Process Manager at ZETA, praises the BE-terna BI team.

Qlik Sense for the production facilities

The Qlik Sense app landscape was built up successively: With personnel evaluations for actual-target analyses, workload analyses and reporting, project planning and monitoring along with analysis of personnel costs with travel expenses, accommodation costs and overtime evaluation.

The tool's extensive visualisation capabilities and the intuitive ability to easily analyse complex relationships were the decisive arguments for us

explains Georg Kowaschitz. In the production plants, the developed Qlik Sense apps will run on large wall-mounted monitors and display the workload and production progress for all employees. The Qlik add-on "NPrinting" will be used across all 6 locations by a wide variety of recipients who work with static reports. With this innovative app, eye-catching reports can be created and shared in no time at all. Thus, ZETA Biopharma not only disseminates knowledge, but also provides new insights in an instant, appealing and simple manner.
