Qlik today announced that it will be supporting Acron Group, leading global manufacturers of mineral fertilizers, with its comprehensive digital transformation program. Qlik will be supporting Acron’s IT infrastructure team to help the entire organization drive better efficiencies and cost savings through the use of data.
Acron has already completed the first stage of its Business Intelligence (BI) solution implementation as part of its digital transformation program. The Qlik Sense® data analytics platform collects data from all key production systems from the Group and acts as an important source of information for real time decision making. Acron Group uses Qlik to analyse data on warehouse, finance, procurement, production faults, key resources management and IT.

“In the early stages of the project, we focused on providing business intelligence as a service. Now each department has proactive employees who use the Qlik analytical reports and tailor them to their needs. The departments that piloted the program have set a positive example for other departments within the Group on BI integration and involving new employees and functions in analytics. Now we have a pool of new analytics initiatives that the Group employees have come up with on their own,” said Denis Guzanov, CIO for Acron. “For example, the digital power control panel was developed by the Business Process Planning and Organizing team, which is not part of the IT department. To make it work, the team collaborated with both the IT and Operations departments to collect the necessary data.”
“Over three months of commercial operation, the Qlik analytics platform has allowed us to streamline energy consumption planning, and deviations in actual power consumption rates from target rates have decreased to less than one percent,” said Mikhail Yaskevich, Chief Engineer for Acron.
“We are delighted to help Acron implement a data-driven approach to managing a manufacturing company. Deploying Qlik has demonstrated the efficiency of data analytics for fine-tuning decisions and business processes,” said Alexey Artemenko, Regional Director, Qlik Russia and CIS.
