Marketplanet – a company with a strong market position in the area of handling the purchasing processes – has become a sales and implementation partner to the Qlik company – a leader in Business Discovery solutions for Business Intelligence systems that support users in data analysis and business decision-making.

Marketplanet provides information technology solutions that optimise purchasing processes. It also offers services designed to enhance sales processes. Collaboration with Marketplanet will increase the availability of QlikView and Qlik Sense to companies that employ solutions for handling the purchasing processes.

As a Qlik partner, Marketplanet will be able to offer to its current and future clients the highest quality of Business Intelligence solutions that are based on the QlikView or Qlik Sense platforms. The extension of Marketplanet products will also address the changing market needs for improved data analysis.

„The QlikView software will enable our clients to present data collected from purchasing and purchase-related processes. When implementing the Marketplanet purchasing platform, our clients more frequently decide to have the entire purchasing process handled, starting from material and financial planning, through the purchasing projects arrangement and supplier selection, to the exchange of documents such as orders or invoices.”. – said Piotr Matysik, the President of Marketplanet.

When the purchasing process is in its entirety handled within the systems, such systems contain an increasing amounts of data that may be processed, analysed and presented in an advanced form. This offers new potential for Marketplanet’s clients in the area of purchasing planning, supplier relations management or creating and monitoring the related KPIs.

As part of the cooperation between the companies, Marketplanet will build an analytical platform designed to support the entire purchasing process. At the moment, the process is handled by the company’s original purchasing platform and the Marketplanet OnePlace system[1].

The partners will also join their forces for sales and marketing. Marketplanet, as a Qlik partner in sales and implementation of the solution, will receive technical support in marketing of the analytical platform. Additionally, Qlik will contribute to Marketplanet experts’ education and certification with regard to sales and building advanced analytical solutions that are based on Qlik’s products.

„Collaboration with Marketplanet will give Qlik the opportunity to sell our solutions to the market of handling the purchasing processes. QlikView makes data associative, creating easily-understandable visual relationships across multiple, complex data sources. Qlik Sense, on the other hand, enables the users to create attractive data visualisations that simplify reporting, but also offer a new and more accurate view on their business. We are convinced that combining the experienced Marketplanet implementation team and the QlikView and Qlik Sense capabilities we guarantee to our current and future clients a new and superior quality.” – said Piotr Kowal, Sales Support Team Leader in Qlik.

The Solution Provider partnership between the companies will also include, among others: the marketing, sales and development of solutions based on QlikView and Qlik Sense. The agreement was concluded in December 2014.
