Amgros was founded with the mission to provide public hospitals in Denmark with the pharmaceuticals they need at the lowest possible price. They execute tendering procedures and bulk purchasing to meet their goals. The organization is responsible for puchasing 99 percent of hte pharmaceuticals used by public hospitals in the country.
As such, it's critical that Amgros has access to data to help them determine when and how to make purchases in order to get the right products at the right price. What data management employees did have access to was delivered in static PDF files of Excel spreadsheets. Creating reports was time consuming. And once they were created, end-users could not drill down into greater detail to determine causation for any particular number.
For a complete overview of the industry and their business, they turned to TARGIT Decision Suite.
“The reason why we chose TARGIT is that it is a great tool to cover most of the recurring needs," says Sune Lindgaard Nielsen, BI Manager at Amgros. "It fills the needs of the organization in a simple, user-friendly way and helps us in our decision processes.”
Before TARGIT, Amgros relied on a single-source BI system that just wasn't delivering the full insight employees needed. The company replaced that system with a full data warehouse built on Microsoft SQL Sever. Today, data is pulled from a variety of data sources including Microsoft Dynamics NAV, other internal source systems, and external sources such as Denmark's Statistics, The Danish Regions, and public hospital data throughout the country.
