Proper structuring of knowledge – why does logistics need Business Intelligence?

All companies, especially those in the logistics industry, base their operations on the processing of business data. Its quantity and level of complexity directly influence the efficiency of the entire company, as well as its growth potential. This makes it imperative today to structure and effectively manage information coming from many different systems. This, in turn, is made possible by Business Intelligence tools that help companies make good business decisions based on the hard data they have.
Professional implementation of a BI system
One of our clients, a business aviation company, noticed that, with more than 5,600 employees and a fleet of more than 200 aircraft, they were faced with the need to reduce the time it took to process selected data and make it available to authorized employees.
The company decided to entrust this task to us by employing a dedicated Business Intelligence specialist who, in cooperation with the company’s in-house team, implemented Microsoft’s BI Stack system. Thanks to the implementation of automated SSIS packages and a monitoring scheme, as well as the use of incremental data transfer, we were able to achieve our goal. We created software fully tailored to the individual needs of the company, allowing it to increase the effectiveness of implementation of their adopted business strategy and improve the process of making changes.
New business possibilities
The BI tool that was implemented allowed the client to structure their information and discover new business opportunities more effectively, while guaranteeing a number of benefits such as:
reduction of the time it takes to transfer data (from six hours to just a few minutes),
improved decision-making and implementation of selected business processes,
providing cost-effective, flexible support and development services for BI systems.
The completed project was very important not only in terms of computerization of the client’s business, but above all in terms of making it more competitive. As a result, today the company is able to much more easily identify possible future challenges and therefore can prevent rather than face them.
