Ilan Alaluf  –  CIO:

As an international company with many sites, we had to find a solution for distributing daily and periodic management reports with shipping and sales information from every location with highlights, colors, and summaries.

“We are planning to apply BI tools in the future, but until those are established, we needed to find a rapidly-implemented solution that could address the report issue.
When we saw QPROS’ solutions – Rainbow and Publisher – we realized that they would provide a full, immediate solution to our need, as well as so much more.
Using these solutions, we will be able to send and distribute reports and operate interfaces without the need for programming or development, but simply through implementation.
Only after we integrated these products we could immediately begin to distribute daily management reports with all the necessary information in the required format. We were therefore able to satisfy our managers’ need to receive this report every morning, directly via their email and mobile phones.”

In the past we have successfully implemented other QPROS tools such as OnTheGo, all of which have brought added value to our purchasing processes, shortened approval time, and given us the ability to carry out operational monitoring and effective management, focused on purchase agreements and orders and budget allocation.
