Quala : Divisional Quality Report Automation
Quala is a leading clean solution company based in the USA. Maintenance division at Quala, uses the Divisional Quality Report to centrally maintain operations at various stores in the QMS Division. Even though some existing reporting and analysis covers many areas, some specific business reporting needs are not fully covered, and the Divisional quality report was built using Excel-based tools to fill the needs. This development was primarily driven and developed by VP pf the maintenance.
However, the current Excel-based tool has begun to show several disadvantages, including locking up system resources on the laptop that refreshes it, an opaque and slow data model that is difficult to modify, and a large file size that prevents easy sharing with store managers who would benefit from viewing the report. Quala contacted ARS analytics to provide a solution to automate the report refresh process and improve the reporting experience using a leading BI tool. Power BI was selected to give automated control over the end-to-end refresh, visibility into the refresh process, and easy delivery of a dynamic dashboard to end-users. The report was constrained to mimic the original Excel dashboard as close to 100% as possible
