Driving a data-driven culture with enterprise dashboards and cross functional insights for Amrutanjan

As the dawn of a new day sets in, employees roll up to the physical stores to begin their shifts. From ensuring sufficient products are stacked up for purchase to relaying inventory and replenishment status to their managers, the daily task list follows as usual. Behind the scenes, personnel from various departments attempt to communicate with each other, trying to find order in the chaos of manual tracking, attempting to collaborate and figure out what products need to go into production, whether there are enough resources to carry out the production and what products are ready for transportation to warehouses for storage and distribution. The information required to obtain a higher level of efficiency to enhance sales and maximize profits is present, albeit in various disparate sources, scattered and obfuscated, just waiting to be discovered. Extracting this information poses a time-consuming process and time is more of an adversary than an ally for any business operation.

Amrutanjan Health Care Limited, a venerable Indian pharmaceutical enterprise established in 1893, has garnered widespread recognition for its enduring commitment to wellness. Renowned for its iconic Amrutanjan Pain Balm, the company has expanded its product range to encompass a diverse array of pharmaceutical and healthcare solutions.

The Challenges

Amrutanjan sought to digitize their operations and achieve higher levels of operational efficiency and sustained business growth. They were in search of a business intelligence (BI) platform that could not only consolidate data from essential sources, but also create a centralized data mart to facilitate data analysis. They wanted to bridge the operational gaps between various departments through this data mart and provide individual dashboards to various departments, interlinked with one another, to ensure cross-functional efficiency.

Amrutanjan also wanted to address the gaps between actual sales and target. They found discrepancies in sales data that was captured manually through Excel, and needed to reconcile anomalies between excessive bookings towards month ends and order cancellations in the following week. This situation often led to excess production of goods, overstocking of warehouses and ultimately, a diminished shelf life of the products. They believed they could overcome this situation with real-time insights into transactions data, ultimately increasing the accuracy of sales figures and target achievements for sales representatives.

The Ask

  • Creating a real-time single source of information through the creation of a centralized data mart.
  • Capturing and integrating data from other external sources into the data mart for tracking business critical KPIs.
  • Unified dashboarding and reporting across the enterprise, from CEO, top-level execs all the way down to field operations.
  • Near real-time data for visibility into anomalies and outliers to identify bottlenecks, derive actionable insights and elevate efficiency.
  • Automation of MIS and daily operational reporting to enhance visibility and boost productivity.

With data at the forefront of the business, Amrutanjan believed that they would be able to prepare better business strategies, gain visibility into key aspects like sales channels and performance, optimize business operations and ultimately improve the business’s bottom line while adhering to their motto of “Pure Healthy Essence.”

They wanted a platform that could not only integrate and cleanse years of data, but one which could act as the brain of Amrutanjan in making future decisions. After thorough research and evaluation of many major BI platforms, they believed Intellicus was the perfect fit for their organization.
