Delivering Insights to Drive Innovation

The North American flat-rolled and coated steel supplier was committed to using data to solve problems and seize opportunities by identifying root causes and areas for improvement.

But attempts to harness data were hampered by increasing volumes, slow retrieval, and inefficient tools.

Vervint brought solutions to Mill Steel’s data problem that helped them unleash the power and potential of analytics.

Fast and Flexible

By creating a flexible analytics solution that delivered insights faster and provided self-service tools that would work with current and future ERP solutions, Vervint gave the company the access to data they needed to turn insights into action. 

Vervint deployed its proven meta Azure Data Factory ingestion to power this innovation. A scalable EDW and analytics solution that utilizes Power BI made scorecards, data exploration, AI visualizations and root-cause analysis possible. Vervint envisioned the Power BI tool to provide the business insights Mill Steel needed when and how they could use them to drive decisions.

Today Mill Steel can quickly access data in a visual and scalable tool for root causes and insights, so they can analyze, collaborate, and solve issues across the supply chain faster than ever before. This not only helps them access and analyze data faster; the company views the tool as a competitive advantage for just-in-time inventory management for clients.

Just to get to this level of data used to take us three hours! I cannot wait for our organization to get back to this level of efficiency. We are going to use this tool all the time.
