About

Euro Car Parts is the UK’s leading distributor of parts for all makes of cars and light commercial vehicles. ECP offers a multi-channel operation of branches, websites, mobile channels, supplying over 130,000 different stocked part numbers.

The challenge

  • Lack “One Version of Truth” as every department has their own figures
  • No way of combining multiple sources of data (inc. third party data)
  • ISAM Files (non relational databases)
  • Moving away from a spreadsheet culture
  • Pockets of data and ad-hoc business intelligence throughout the organisation

The solution

  • Create One version of Truth (shut down all the legacy systems)
  • Combined multiple sources of data (especially new acquisitions and external third party data)
  • Building Qlik Applications for different business departments
  • Qlik Applications (Data Marts) will support the pathway to a Data Warehousing Solution

The benefits

  • Live sales reporting to the management team every 10 minutes
  • ECP can view over 130k products availability in-stock to serve their customers efficiently
  • Check the stock movements hourly to ensure that branches have sufficient stock to sell to their local customers
  • Qlik is deployed to provide financial reporting pack to ECP executives
  • All based on a governed, secure and flexible platform
  • Deliver an agile supply chain strategy across the organisation
  • Empower branch managers with a Qlik Mobile solution
