At GABRIEL-CHEMIE, Qlik Sense is used as the data integration and analytics platform. The required planning functionality is provided by Fiplana from INFORM DataLab. The extension has been in use for 7 years. It allows users to plan quickly and in detail at various levels, perform top-down and bottom-up planning, and conduct planning based on actual historical data. Due to its high user-friendliness, Fiplana can be easily utilized across departments, such as for cost and revenue planning, budgeting and forecasting, sales planning and control, as well as project planning and marketing controlling.
Data can be created and edited directly in the Fiplana interface and can be written back to various databases. Input masks or fields can be freely chosen. Options include free text or dropdown fields, as well as checkboxes. Additionally, data can also be edited using mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.
