Business Intelligence and Analytics for Distribution

Follow the distribution process from start to finish

Business Intelligence allows you to analyze much deeper than at present. As a Sales, Purchasing or Supply Chain manager, you look for the best way to keep a grip on the situation and to steer for the highest possible productivity on a daily basis. In many companies, there is a lot to gain from more efficient process design. For example, by looking at the turnover rate of articles per customer, you can easily see how things are developing over time. If you see a declining trend, you can take immediate action. Ultimately, you want to leave more margin to the product. Business Intelligence enables you to do this. Simple, fast and flexible.


BI helps you achieve these goals directly:.

  • Production targets to follow
  • Maintain delivery reliability
  • Crease switching times
  • Clearance malfunctions
  • Tuning the occupancy rate according to need

Sell a better product

How constant is the quality of your product? By registering and reporting this centrally, you can be sure that the customer always receives a constant quality and the price matches it.

Delivery improves

The fact that BI gives you an overview of the entire production process and alerts you when a supplier threatens to deliver too late means your customer is better served. He will have his product on time!

Saving costs

Business Intelligence has a cost-saving effect on manufacturing companies. This is because all kinds of processes become more efficient. For example, better capacity planning.

“We now see immediately how much stock we have per product and what the trend is”.

Johan Cremers, Business Operations Manager

We used to get some stock information from our old ERP system, but not nearly as much as we get from Business Intelligence now. In addition, we can now, for example, steer much better on series sizes. This means that we need less changeover time.

  • Production staff more involved
  • Easier control on series size
  • Cost savings through greater efficiency

Supply Chain

How do you know if a process can be more efficient? At least not by letting the machines run without looking at the data. Maybe there would be a rising trend in production if you did something with the machine data.

With Business Intelligence from Hillstar, we have daily insight into the most important things, such as purchasing and sales, production and sales results. Now we can also see much better if we are on track to achieve our strategic goals. We track what’s been produced on a weekly basis and we can immediately adapt to the results.

Cups4you werkt met Business Intelligence voor Dynamics AX van Hillstar

We were looking for better information from Microsoft Dynamics AX. Business Intelligence enables us to be a lot more flexible by maneuvering and analyzing our data. For example, we can report ‘through time’. So comparing last month’s results with this month’s results. We used to have to change the whole report.

We see Business Intelligence as an opportunity to flexibly provide the unambiguous information needed to run the business. Not only for the monthly reporting, but also as part of our daily business operations. The strength of Business Intelligence is that it meets the information needs of the business.

About Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence can be seen more and more as an umbrella concept for Customer insights, Stock management and Supply Chain intelligence. This means that by choosing BI, you are choosing to give your entire company a boost. Whereas a financial department previously had a lot of use for these kinds of tools, the Production Manager now also has them. Because we already provide many dashboards as standard, we ensure a kickstart of your new production strategy based on Business Intelligence. In the end, you no longer have to intervene afterwards, but you are ahead of issues. Prepare yourself for the future.
