Auchan chooses BristolReport of BristolDecision as multidimensional reporting solution for financial controlling project of the Holding Auchan.
BristolDecision, BI analysis and reporting of performance ISV, today announced that Groupe Auchan has chosen BristolReport for Excel solution as multidimensional analysis and reporting for AUCHAN financial controlling project.
Family business unlisted Auchan has a policy of gradual and controlled international growth, and focuses its investments on priority development areas: Western Europe, Central Europe and East and Asia. Auchan has 296 hypermarkets in 12 countries or regions.
In 2007, Auchan Department of Business Intelligence has conducted a review of technical choice to select a front multidimensional analysis solution for Microsoft Analysis Services 2005. The choice was made on BristolReport to Excel for group financial controlling project in addition to Microsoft ProClarity for other projects requiring web deployment.
BristolReport to Excel has been very effective against other solutions on the market aspects, as follows :
- Its seamless integration into Excel
- Its overall simplicity of use
- The possibility of producing asymmetric reporting
- The ability to create reports from multi-cubes and synchronize dimensions from different cubes with each other
Financials controllers like the Excel interface but enjoy as much autonomy with which they can handle BristolReport to create their own indicators.
