Hipogest, manages a franchise, Hertz rent-a-car, for the past 20 years in Portugal, guaranteeing the operation of tourist routes on two wheels with Hertz Ride. Present in 4 countries, Portugal, Spain, France and Italy, Hertz Ride operates in the segment of motorized tourism with a turnover of one million euros.
Hertz Ride, whose activity is seasonal and dynamic, and has a multitude of operational features, needed a simple and intuitive tool that would allow it to ensure and monitor all its operations and associated information.
With the implementation of the latest version of ERP Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Hertz Ride also felt the need to improve its data analysis, until then realized by dynamic spreadsheets.
Planning or extracting indicators for a specific report involved 4-5 hours of a work day causing delay in the availability of information to the various divisions of the Hertz Ride.
Following a Hertz Ride needs analysis, Arquiconsult proposed the implementation of a Business Intelligence Solution supported by Microsoft PowerBI, for the information management.
Microsoft PowerBI solution, based on data models specially prepared for its exploitation, also allowed data access in real time directly from the two operating tools.
According to Hugo Sá, IT Manager at Hertz Ride:
"The most notable feature of PowerBI Solution is that it provides us with complete access to data, by crossing information generated in any of our systems from different sources, in an easy and visual way, allowing us to have the information needed to make decisions in our organization.
