South Australian winery, Taylors Wines, has deployed a data analytics platform in a bid to improve how information is shared and acted on across the organisation.
The BOARD business intelligence software unites data residing in disparate ecommerce, ERP, product, sales, CRM marketing and vineyard systems, into a central data warehouse.
From there, the software’s analytics and visualisation functions will allow all business units to generate and view data reports in real-time, and better rate its performance.
In a statement, Taylors Wines managing director, Mitchell Taylor, said one of the challenges the company has faced is having many, growing sources of data.
The new software, which has now been deployed across the business, will be used to monitor and analyse Taylors’ data sets, as well as present data previously not visible to be investigated.
The project was overseen by the Taylors IT team, but was managed as a cross-functional project team to improve business reporting. All staff will have access to the reports, and the IT team has the ability to set up permissions to allow different report suites for different users.
Mobile employees, such as those working in sales, the vineyards and production, will also be able to explore data in real-time on mobile devices. Other prospective uses include streamlining budgeting and forecasting, inventory management and improving business capabilities.
