True Textiles Weaves Birst Business Analytics into Key Production Processes
Overview: True Textiles is the world’s leading manufacturer of proprietary and open-line commercial textiles. For nearly a decade, True Textiles created sales reports using a traditional, on-premise business intelligence solution.
Problem: While the legacy solution helped to combine the company’s disparate data sources, it was difficult to use and had limited functionality. Moreover, its costly licensing model made expansion prohibitively expensive, so IT had to run reports for the rest of the organization in a cumbersome process that reduced employee productivity and slowed decision-making. The company decided it needed an easy-to-use, self-service BI solution.
Key Selection Criteria: True Textiles identified four key criteria in its decision process: 1) Affordability, 2) Ready-to-distribute, pixel-perfect reporting, 3) Self-service analytics, easy-to-use dashboards, and 4) Real-time access to information.
Birst Results: After evaluating numerous options, True Textiles selected Birst’s BI platform and experienced numerous benefits, including: 1) improved production quality, time and efficiency, 2) increased customer service and satisfaction, and 3) enabled the sales team to make faster, more-informed decisions.
