Since implementing iCharts, everyone at Street Furniture can now visualize all NetSuite data in real time—no more hours spent on exporting data and manipulating it in Excel, and no more costly delays due to inaccurate, outdated information. Senior managers now have time to manage their departments instead of spending hours creating reports.
Because the data visualizations created in iCharts are so easy to understand, employees don’t need to be an expert in any one department. With just one glance, employees can see where a project is at, where things are going, and what needs to be done. When an order comes into the system that doesn’t have the allocated time or resources, it is picked up immediately and addressed purely by using that visual management system.
iCharts also gave Street Furniture Australia the ability to better manage its stock levels, reducing stock turnover from 200 days to 90 days and saving several hundred thousand dollars in inventory levels. iCharts has also helped the company stay lean and agile, allowing managers to manage their departments instead of spending time building reports, and improving the company’s reputation as a business that’s able to deliver on time.
