- Hudson Filipe Moreira Silva, Business Intelligence Developer, Cabral & Sousa
Cabral & Sousa has been operating in the distribution sector since 1976, when the owners noticed the lack of service in Conquista, State of Bahia. Due to the distance from big cities, the cost of transportation was significantly higher.
TARGIT for the distribution segment
To stay agile and competitive in the distribution business amid an increasing number of global competitors, you need to have a complete overview of your business. You also need to balance customer demands while controlling the costs in an industry where tight margins and inventory overload are part of everyday life.
TARGIT is used across multiple departments of Cabral & Sousa, including Administration, Finance, Logistics, and Purchasing. The implementation in the Human Resources department is already in an evaluation process. When asked about where TARGIT BI is used the most, Hudson Filipe points to the commercial department, which uses various types of reports, analyses, dashboards, and notifications to guide their next steps. He also says they have created about 300 types of analyses within TARGIT.
The future of Cabral & Sousa
Their plan for the coming years is working together with all our departments and systems by centralizing information on a single platform and applying the single language methodology in 100% of the departments. Cabral & Sousa has 145 suppliers and about 350 employees who receive information provided by daily reports generated by TARGIT. Because they now know how to act with more accuracy, decision making comes easier and faster. And as a result, Cabral & Sousa promotes an environment for knowledge sharing, an unbeatable advantage.
