Professional Business Analysis (PBA) makes it possible for any user at Fagerhult to carry out analyses in a very short time.
A Package Solution for Business Analysis of the Company’s Main Business Areas
Fagerhult AB uses Professional Business Analysis to manage its purchasing processes. Orango’s extensive experience in purchasing and in cooperating with clients is the foundation of PBA, which ensures that the correct information gets where it is supposed to go. The system was developed using modern methods for decision support systems, which makes it easy to install and maintain.
“We used to have all our information scattered across multiple systems, and it took a long time to put everything together before negotiation or follow-up with our suppliers. The information was also inaccessible and person-dependent,” says Stefan Ståhl, Group Purchase Director at Fagerhult.
A Need for Relevant Information and Clear Reports
The purchasing organization is big, and it needs to be able to:
- Put together verified and relevant information regarding all purchasing activities.
- Gain quick access to relationships and KPIs in a controlled way, with understandable and straightforward reports.
Collected Information Regardless of the ERP System
Professional Business Analysis makes it possible for any user at Fagerhult to carry out analyses in a very short time. It is also possible to measure the effects of purchasing activities on the company’s results, which makes it possible to act on any anomalies and follow developments. The information is all in one place, regardless of which ERP system the company uses.
“Regardless of which or how many ERP systems are used, our whole organization now has access to centralized, quality-ensured data storage that contains all the information. This makes it easier for users who are less tech-savvy to use the information found in various tools, reports, and analyses,” says Ståhl.
We can now create our own reports, follow our joint KPIs, and use the information to make money from our purchases.
Professional Business Analysis for Several Business Areas
The system can also be very useful for other business areas besides purchasing. For more traditional business areas, there are ready standard package solutions for ordering/sales, purchasing, logistics/warehousing, production, and finance. This means there are semi-finished solutions with ready features specific to the business area in question.
“It is important to position purchasing activities as a contributing factor to the company’s total financial results, improvements, and increased competitiveness. We can now create our own reports, follow our joint KPIs, and use the information to make money from our purchases,” concludes Ståhl.
