Rail transportation

Qlikview can help keep your business on track

The rail transportation industry grapples with price wars, competitive promotional campaigns, travel safety and security issues, round the clock service availability and more!

Whether you are a suburban, regional or freight provider the enterprise that competes in this market must have access to up-to-date analysis and information to monitor targets, manage performance, communicate with clients and forecast trends for new product and service offerings.

The available data must include complete insight into supply chain information, inventory, product and service performance, competitor pricing and positioning, incentive tracking, schedules, billing and passenger detail.

Often rail systems data will not be integrated and the ability of Qlikview to move across multiple disparate systems and form one version of the truth is vital at keeping you on track.
