Bangalore, India – March 20, 2015 – Qlik® (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, today announced that Bluestone, one of India’s largest online jewelry retailers, is using Qlik® Sense to transform its organization by providing business users with the ability to create visualizations and data analysis.
Based in Bangalore, Bluestone is one of the fastest growing online retailers in India and is increasingly regarded as the country’s go-to store for high quality international jewelry and accessories. Along with its rapid growth, Bluestone began generating more and more data. As a result the organization needed an agile and easy-to-deploy analytics solution that allowed it to leverage data from multiple sources and help employees respond to customers’ needs more quickly and effectively. After reviewing several data visualization platforms from other companies, the jewelry brand chose Qlik Sense for its ease of use and smart visualization features.
“Qlik Sense helps us analyze data across several departments at Bluestone, including supply chain and inventory, sales, and operations. We’ve only just deployed the visualization platform but the feedback from our users has been fantastic,” said Gaurav Kushwaha, one of Bluestone’s founders. “The fact that the team can all become ‘data analysts’ without any technical knowledge is an important benefit for us as we look to increase our share of the fast-growing online branded jewelry market.”
Working with Qlik partner Greencube Global to implement Qlik Sense, Bluestone is now able to create business dashboards that provide deep insights into the ‘health’ of its business and targets. More importantly, Bluestone can maximize the customer experience by responding to customer needs and demands in real time.
“The opportunity to work with a unique company like Bluestone is a huge privilege for us. Their rapid growth demands a highly reactive data visualization platform that can be created by the users themselves. Moreover, given their custom made-to-order process, it is imperative that the chosen platform is able to interact with multiple IT systems,” said Anand Mandapaka, founder director at Greencube Global. “Qlik Sense came through with flying colors and we have been able to deliver value to the customer in a very short time.”
“Qlik customers throughout India are embracing the benefits provided by the user-friendly, self-service interface of Qlik Sense. For Bluestone it helps users get insights into data faster so they can make better decisions and propel their growth in the market,” said Souma Das, Country Manager, Qlik India. “By allowing more people to have access to platforms like Qlik Sense, organizations can derive greater value from their data and become more competitive and successful.”
