Enabling Innovative Products, Processes and People

Finance

Simplify the job with better answers and process

Companies need more automated and agile processes to manage and report financial performance. Manually intensive procedures and poor visibility into accounting processes and the underlying data create obstacles. With QlikView, financial executives can:

  • Automate processes to consolidate financial reporting
  • Track P/L views from the enterprise to individual cost centers
  • Improve financial controls and predictability of performance
  • Follow progress toward revenue targets with scorecard KPIs
  • Reduce the time and cost of regulatory compliance (IFRS, SOX, etc.)

Manufacturing

Let information drive the process

When looking to reduce production costs, medical device manufacturers must still ensure the quality and safety of products and comply with regulations that govern facilities and processing methods. Required electronic record keeping for medical equipment adds further incentives to modernize processes. With QlikView, production planners and managers can:

  • Quickly analyze when best to outsource and to whom
  • Refine/extend process improvement methodologies (Six Sigma, Lean)
  • Work with dashboards and reporting customized to area of responsibility
  • Integrate production data with other business and compliance data
  • Extend operational cost reductions beyond the production floor

R&D

Improve predictability of R&D investments

Smart R&D ensures long-term competitiveness. Robust analytics and predictive modeling help identify and execute the best opportunities. Using QlikView, senior executives and research teams:

  • Share cross-functional visibility with sales, marketing and new discovery
  • Focus on projects that deliver highest value and best fit with corporate strategy
  • Accelerate clinical trial processes and regulatory approvals
  • Simplify data exchange for complex trials with multiple collaborators

Regulatory Compliance

Minimize compliance risks and costs

Companies tend to approach each compliance requirement as a separate management program. Best practice medical device companies centralize compliance governance across their enterprise processes. Using QlikView, corporate compliance officers:

  • Implement an enterprise compliance architecture
  • Collect, organize, and analyze large volumes of compliance data
  • Standardize analysis and reporting for a myriad of regulatory standards
  • Track effectiveness of compliance programs

Sales & Marketing

Healthcare facilities and physicians use medical devices tailored to their practice requirements. Patients use medical devices and supplies that their caregivers recommend. Targeting the right audience defines the success of marketing campaigns and field force effectiveness. With QlikView, sales and marketing teams can:
