For 60 years, Leifheit has been one of the leading suppliers of household products in Europe. With innovative solutions, the company continuously ensures that daily life at home is made a little easier and more convenient. Under the well-known Leifheit and Soehnle brands, high-quality products with high utility value and functional design are offered for the areas of cleaning, laundry care, kitchen and well-being. In the service-oriented private label segment, Leifheit is present on the market with its French subsidiaries Birambeau and Herby with a selected product range that is mainly offered under private labels.
The Leifheit Group employs around 1,100 people. The company is headquartered in Nassau, Rhineland-Palatinate. From here, the products are delivered to more than 80 countries worldwide. The company has 15 of its own locations and branches, including five logistics and production facilities in Germany, France and the Czech Republic.
In the search for a new software solution for analysis and reporting, the project team chose antares analyzer. The software emerged as the clear winner from the evaluation matrix with several analysis tools, among other things due to the simple and intuitive front end, good navigation options and consistent look and feel of the screens. Leifheit users from sales, finance and management were to be provided with a tool that would improve the quality and timeliness of information. In addition, consistent and accurate sales and turnover evaluations should be possible, and targeted sales and market information should be currently available. Leifheit also attached importance to being able to carry out meaningful and flexible reporting throughout the group.
The antares solution, which can be used immediately, is based on the BI development platform Longview Enterprise and offers pre-conceived data models and masks for reports and analyses developed from practical experience. The application is directly linked to the upstream ERP system and stores the data centrally in a data warehouse with OLAP technology. Since 2018, the software has been accessed worldwide via a modern HTML5 client. This means that all end devices can be connected via an HTML5-capable browser. Responsive design, fast and secure access to all relevant information round off the usage options.
The daily process flows in the cooperation with the large sales partners have become easier and faster since the introduction of antares analyzer. This is because their specific processes can now also be mapped in the application, for example special features in order processing and invoicing. In addition, the new solution fulfils the requirement for as little support as possible. Individual reports and evaluations can be created in a very short time.
antares analyzer can be adapted exactly to your organisational structure and company processes. Numerous evaluations make it easy to keep track of opportunities & risks, measures, indicators and process flows and, if necessary, to retrieve detailed information quickly and independently.
