Challenge

Yusen Logistics experienced the following challenges during its reporting:

  • Accessing applicable data
  • Manual, multi-step reporting processes
  • A heavy reliance on IT to create or edit reports with manual, time-wasting bookkeeping

The organization evaluated the following reporting tools before selecting Atlas:

  • A BI solution (Targit, JetReports, Zap, BI365)
  • An Excel add-in

Solution

Yusen Logistics has not used Atlas as a replacement for Management Reporter. The organization uses the following supplemental reporting tools with Atlas:

  • QlikView

Yusen Logistics also uses the Atlas query functionality for reporting beyond Financials/GL for the following types of reports beyond Financials/GL:

  • Inventory Payables/Receivables

Results:

  • Freed more than 50% of their organization’s IT support now that they have Atlas to create reports
  • Trimmed more than 60% from their previous reporting process after using Atlas

"We couldn’t live without Atlas, so it is not a matter of time or cost saved, but existence. I can really make the statement that Microsoft Dynamic AX was implemented parallel with Atlas, so we can not imagine our ERP without it.”
