A flexible architecture approach and high degree of user-friendliness tip the scales for the Board solution.

Board International, the world’s leading supplier of enterprise decision-making software, has gained the largest German pharmaceuticals importer, Kohlpharma, as a customer. The unification of BI & CPM in one platform, speed of implementation and flexibility of the solution convinced Kohlpharma to entrust data analysis to Board.

Kohlpharma has decided to restructure its sales reporting using Board. The objective is to make it leaner and much more flexible thanks to Board dashboards that can be called up on a more targeted, individual basis.

The main advantage of the Board solution is the integrated approach for all application areas, analysis, planning and reporting that will not only enable Kohlpharma to meet its current requirements, but also make various modifications and extensions in the future. Additionally, new applications can be created without programming so that no in-depth IT knowledge is required to perform analyses and evaluations. This makes it very easy for employees to use and is a significant factor in high user adoption.

Board helps us increase our flexibility to remain competitive in the dynamic market environment and to continue to maintain our position as market leader. Thanks to Board we have established a flexible, easy to operate system by creating and using new application areas and functions. In addition, the tool can be used without needing scripts or programming, which enables us to implement ideas quickly without any IT knowledge. No other supplier offers this,” says Marc Hargarter, Manager of the internal sales department at Kohlpharma. 

Kohlpharma and Board share essential, common values because we believe in sustainability and long-term success. With our all-in-one solution for analysis, planning and reporting we are looking forward to helping Kohlpharma to achieve sustainability by well-informed and thus better decisions. This is an important mission that we take very seriously and that is part of Board’s corporate philosophy,” says Ansgar Eickeler, General Manager Central & East Europe at Board.
