Vicaima, being in an extremely competitive market and where efficiency is a fundamental requirement, has a daily need to provide information to its decision makers so that decisions can be taken swiftly and correctly.
Vicaima used SAP BW to pull information from SAP in order to make daily reports for sales, orders and production. This daily process took about 60 minutes. To do this, VICAIMA created reports that were exported to Excel. Then, using Excel formulas and Pivots, VICAIMA built reports in Excel. Whenever changes were needed, it was necessary to ask for IT intervention and the changes took 1 or 2 days to be made (already quite efficient for industry standards).
