Matthew James, Purity Life President and CEO, to receive award in category of “Overall Business Technology Innovation”

RADNOR, Pa.--()--Qlik®, (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, today announced that customer Matthew James, President and CEO of Purity Life Health Products LP, will receive the 2014 Ventana Research Technology Leader Award in the category of “Overall Business Technology Innovation” for the company’s use of QlikView®.

A Qlik customer since 2009, Purity Life is Canada's leading distributor of natural health products including dietary supplements, vitamins, natural body care, earth friendly household goods and natural health food products. The company supplies products to more than 7,000 stores across Canada, including health food stores and pharmacies.

In order to stay competitive, Purity Life needed to move away from the cumbersome process previously used to extract data from its legacy systems and make data more accessible across the organization. In just two days the organization had QlikView up and running and the sales team gained immediate access to customer data to drive sales performance. Following that initial deployment QlikView was rolled out to finance, IT, customer service and the executive leadership team, dramatically increasing Purity Life’s visibility into its data to help improve profitability and increase efficiencies. Armed with insights, employees were able to identify customer purchasing trends, better manage vendors, streamline the supply chain and even prevent inaccuracies within finance and purchasing.

“Purity Life’s utilization of QlikView exemplifies how organizations can successfully leverage data to improve business performance,” said Scott Jennings, Director of Market Development, Retail and Services at Qlik. “By striving to be continuously innovative and take a data centric approach, Matthew has enabled his teams to uncover actionable insights that help positively impact the bottom line. We are thrilled to see Matthew recognized for this accomplishment.”

The Ventana Research Technology Leadership Awards are presented annually to business and IT leaders who are using technologies and applying best practices to provide the best possible outcomes in productivity, performance and support of an organization’s goals and objectives. The awards recognize pioneering leaders and organizations that embrace technology to drive change and increase value for organizations across the world.
