PizzaExpress first deployed Qlik in 2018, providing its teams with a holistic overview of restaurant data. This included datasets for sales, inventory, and labor, making Qlik a central repository for analysis and reporting.
PizzaExpress wanted to expand and move to advanced and interactive analytics to put real-time data into the hands of employees at every restaurant across the U.K. through mobile devices. Additonally, the company wanted to establish a single point of truth to enable real-time decisions. To achieve this goal, PizzaExpress has transitioned to analytics through Qlik’s hosted and managed cloud infrastructure, which enables it to centralize data management and distribution, ensuring that the right data is in the right people’s hands at the right time.
With access to real-time exact insights, employees are equipped with accurate, relevant data that enables them to take informed actions, such as when forecasting product demand, allowing them to make accurate purchasing choices that minimize food waste.
