Sixt car rental chooses QlikView Business Discovery platform

Self-service, mobile business intelligence solution enables Sixt to analyse fleet utilisation trends.

By Ben Sullivan

QlikTech has announced that Sixt SE, an international mobility services provider and the largest car rental company in Germany, is using the QlikView Business Discovery platform.

Using QlikView on mobile, up to 1,000 users can now analyse sales trends across all Sixt stations worldwide and anticipate market demands in order to ‘better manage’ its fleet of vehicles anytime, anywhere. With users performing interactive analysis themselves, QlikView said it has minimised the time it takes in obtaining business critical information. Previously, Sixt was using a BI tool with 100 static reports being generated monthly.

"With QlikView, information is now available at our fingertips and can be used for different search queries," said Alexander Sixt, head of corporate development at Sixt SE. "Sixt is already benefiting from time savings and is using the data to improve the satisfaction of our customers."

Jeff Boehm, VP of global product marketing at QlikTech, said: "QlikView on Mobile’s ease of navigation and compelling touch interactivity give business users new levels of insight whenever and wherever they want.

"Users can explore information any way they choose, helping teams like Sixt’s transform the way they collaborate and interact with customers."

Sixt added: "The speed with which data can be queried and applications developed has fully convinced us. With QlikView, we have the results in just a few clicks and we get the information we need within minutes. The self-service BI concept allows our users without technical knowledge to create their own ad hoc reports so they always have the latest figures."

Last month, CBR learned how QlikTech’s QlikView helped Malmo police in Sweden track down a serial killer.

Evidence which would normally have taken police months to sift through was analysed in a matter of days, even hours. QlikView gave Malmö police the ability to search through millions of records and predict where and when shootings would take place, using calculations determined by eyewitness accounts, interrogations and previous incidents.

Ola Hornemark, a strategic developer at Malmö Police, said: "The whole operation lasted two or three days, it was very quick. We had a list of possible shooters within the hour. The process was very labour saving, if we had not used Qlikview it would have taken months to carry out the same process."
