Unless you are a regular visitor to the website then you may not have noticed some of the new case studies that we have generated from success stories with our customers. As this blog is shared to our subscriber list I thought I’d take this opportunity to draw your attention to 2 of the latest case studies submitted by our colleagues in DI Netherlands and Infotool Denmark, DI’s Danish distributor.
The case studies are both focused on customers in the Supply Chain sector, and have some really interesting stories to tell.
Royal Lemkes has relied on Dimensional Insight’s Diver Platform for data management for many years. This Dutch company operates a plant service partner to some of Europe’s largest retailers. For more than 130 years, Royal Lemkes has connected plant growers to retail organizations such as supermarkets, garden centers, furniture shops, and hardware stores. The family business helps its customers determine what plants to have on sale, and arranges timely delivery at the highest quality and the lowest costs. The company offers additional services, varying from business intelligence (BI) and automated replenishment to sustainability consulting. Royal Lemkes relies on data to service the entire supply chain while ensuring healthy internal operations. Read more in the PDF case study.

FREJA Transport and Logistics. Until recently, FREJA did not have a clear business intelligence strategy. This led to more work than was necessary in many cases, where every time a report was needed it was started from scratch. Some other challenges included:
The interfaces were difficult for users to navigate, and the information was presented in a confusing way.
There were too many report pages, and some had old, outdated information.
It was slow, and there wasn’t a lot of trust in the data.
FREJA also needed a better way to work with its customers. Some of its larger customers wanted to see their data in a certain way that the company had not been able to provide to them. FREJA wanted to be able to customize its reports to present data so it could meet customer demands.
Find out how FREJA rose to these challenges using the Diver Platform.
