With a spike of sales activity around established product QlikView, Endeavour are increasingly getting requests for budgeting, forecasting and financial reporting tools that will "fit in" with the QlikView models. The base of clients for QlikView is growing rapidly and with it comes demands to see what else can be achieved given the huge success businesses have experienced with the product. For many, the QlikView reporting has become the standard expected and spreadsheet based budgeting is just not cutting it.
Endeavour has been in discussions, and is in the process of taking on products from KT Labs, a long time Technology Partner of Qlik. The first product is KliqPlan which is a rich "Excel like" tool to build budgeting and planning models directly within QlikView. The benefit is an integrated planning tool embedded in a superior reporting tool.
In addition to KliqPlan a mapping tool called KliqMap is also available. KliqMap leverages QlikView, Esri ArcGIS (the leading GIS platform) and KT Labs’ Planning Suite to create a fully integrated and interactive environment where analytics and simulation can be performed in the context of business processes. KliqMap is the winner of the Location Analytics Award for the 2014 Esri Partner Conference. The award recognizes a company for developing and delivering outstanding quality Esri software-based Location Analytics solutions.
These extensions added to the power already available in Qlikview opens up some exciting opportunities for our clients and prospects we are working with.
