Qlik (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in visual analytics, today announced that AFAS Software, a fast-growing ERP software provider, will integrate Qlik® Sense into its online product to provide world-class visual analytics to their more than 7,000 AFAS Software clients. By integrating Qlik, more than 560,000 AFAS users will be able to leverage the benefits of enterprise-ready business intelligence (BI) within their ERP suite. This multi-million dollar investment underpins AFAS’ strategy of creating a single and integrated software solution for its customers.
The upcoming release of AFAS’ online product, powered by Qlik Sense, will include an intuitive drag-and-drop interface supported by rich visual analytics, reporting, and dashboarding capabilities as a fully integrated part of the AFAS solution. With just a few clicks, users will be able to see the whole story in their data, including historical patterns and correlations through engaging visualizations.
Bas van der Veldt, CEO of AFAS Software, commented: “As we set high standards for our offering, building an in-house BI solution was not an option. It would take years and we wanted to give our customers the best experience the market offers. Qlik proved to be the disruptive platform we were looking for. Where other ERP providers offer a BI module as a paid plug-in, we offer it for free to our customers.”
“We are very pleased with the strategic choice AFAS Software has made in Qlik,” said Lars Björk, Qlik CEO. “This partnership responds to the growing demand from companies to empower their business with a powerful and flexible visual analytics platform that tells the whole story in their data. Qlik and AFAS are leading what many organizations see as a culture change; a desire not just to modernize certain working practices, such as administration, but to actually leapfrog other professional services by adopting the most innovative and intuitive solutions.”
