Publish Date: June 10, 2024

In today’s highly competitive and hyper-connected marketplace, a company’s success hinges on its ability to make optimal decisions quickly. While this sounds straightforward, basing decisions on facts rather than guesswork has often been challenging. Although data resides within a company’s business systems, presenting it to users in an easily understood format at the moment of need has been a long-standing challenge for IT professionals.

This challenge is now met with QAD’s Next Generation Analytics Action Centers. These innovative tools enable companies to take care of their customers before and after a sale, reducing the risk of losing not just a single customer but potentially hundreds more. Understanding how customers are engaging with products and support services can help businesses significantly enhance customer retention and maintain a strong brand image.
