AGCO Teams with iMaps to Implement QlikApp

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest AGCO Corporation, a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment and solutions, today announced that it has teamed up with iMaps to implement QlikView, the business intelligence and visualization software. As a large global business with multiple brands and numerous international locations, AGCO was looking for a unique solution to integrate and analyze a huge amount of complex data from many different sources inside and outside the company in order to better drive business. AGCO is one of the first agricultural companies to embrace data-driven solutions to move the industry forward.Eric Lescourret, AGCO Director, Advanced Technology Solutions & commercial strategic initiatives, North America said, “QlikView allows AGCO to integrate and unify our 20+ data sources for a complete overview and to centrally evaluate all of that critical data. We can now seamlessly build the tools we need to analyze and visualize information. AGCO can now be more proactive and predictive and make better-informed decisions, quickly.” The QlikView solution connects all data sources in one central location and provides AGCO with a meaningful analysis and visualization of all relevant data quickly and in real time. Multiple users and stakeholders are able to access information and benefit from new insights.As data integration and analysis became more important, AGCO enlisted iMaps as a partner to implement QlikView. To analyze commercial performance a special QlikView app called Data Driven Commercial Performance (DDCP). “The DDCP app is enabling AGCO to better track commercial activities as well as our ability to execute our marketing and sales plan, helping us to achieve our retail and market share targets,” explained Lescourret.From now on, AGCO’s North America business will be able to share the data efficiently across various functions and benefit from data interconnectivity and standardized key performance indicators (KPIs). Lescourret continued, “The capacity we’ve gained to benchmark our KPIs by district, account manager, dealers, and by product is amazing. After our analysis we were able to focus on critical areas, setting more realistic goals and reallocating resources and investments more efficiently.” Different functions can consume the same information in different ways based on their unique challenges and area of engagement.The data collected reflects how AGCO and its dealers efficiently manage the entire customer journey; from the time the customer is considering acquiring equipment from one of AGCO’s equipment brands to the time they need to replace it with a newer machine and the ability to support that customer along the way.The data-driven analysis tool enables AGCO to make smarter and quicker decisions based on imminent market demands and needs. The pilot rollout within the North American marketing and sales team has been successful thus far. In the months to come, AGCO plans to engage with users to further optimize the tool so that it will support AGCO’s mission to grow through superior customer service, innovation, quality and commitment.last_img read more

The Group Messaging App That Saved My Butt at CES

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… mike melanson At a conference of more than 130,000 people, cell phone service, Internet connectivity and even the sureness that a taxi will be available when you need it is generally in question. Trying to coordinate between multiple people, therefore, can be a rather trying experience…unless you have one little group messaging app called Beluga.Last week, amidst the insanity that is the Consumer Electronics Show (and Las Vegas on an average Thursday night) Beluga saved me and my friends from an unending and confusing game of telephone.Beluga is a simple, yet full-featured, app for both iPhone and Android smartphones, with access for any Web-enabled device through its Web interface. (If you didn’t know, we here at ReadWriteWeb like simple-yet-full-featured apps, so Beluga fits right in.) Even feature phone users can get in on the group chat fun, as the app will send messages as SMS.Beluga joins into a crowded space of SMS alternatives, but takes it one step further by giving its users the ability to create “pods” of interaction and adding extremely useful features like geolocation of a individual pod members and picture sharing. If you’re all actively chatting and choosing to share your location (notice: you have the option to turn this off or on at any point), then you can switch over to the map view at any point to see where everyone is. This is a great feature for exploring a new place with friends, yet being able to run off on your own and still find each other.Last year, all the conversation leading up to the South By Southwest conference – one of the largest yearly convergences of smartphone-owning geeks – was dominated by the battle between location-based services like Foursquare and Gowalla. This year, we expect that same conversation, but this time focused on group messaging apps. There are a couple of strong competitors (such as GroupMe), but if our experience with Beluga at CES tells us anything, our vote lies with the whale.We know, there’s likely a bunch more that do the same thing slightly differently. You tell us – what’s your favorite group messaging app, so far?

Rita Ora slams ex-boyfriend in new track Poison

first_imgThe blonde beauty – who is reportedly dating rapper Richard Hilfiger – has previously been in relationships with DJ Calvin Harris, reality star Rob Kardashian and sports agent Dave Gardner and admits the track is about her “bad luck” in her personal life, but stopped short of admitting who she singles out in the track.Rita Ora has slammed an unnamed ex-boyfriend in her new track, Poison which compares the anonymous man to the devil.Chatting to Clash magazine, the 23-year-old singer shared: “[‘Poison’] is about my bad luck with love.”The lyrics are harsh, comparing her former love to a snake and the devil.At one point Rita sings: “Like a serpent/From the Garden of Eden/You are like poison/Running in my blood.”I open up my windows/I’m so sick of breathing/Every day I’m trying/But I don’t remember who I was before you came.”The feisty singer hasn’t confirmed who the song has been aimed at but given her past relationships, it’s safe to say she’s had a lot of material to work with.In June, Calvin publicly announced his split from Rita via Twitter and has reportedly offered other pop stars the songs he wrote originally for her second album.Ex-boyfriend Rob has also been vocal about his relationship with the blonde beauty.In 2012, the sock designer took to Twitter to rant about his failed romance with the ‘Hot Right Now’ pop star and even alleged Rita had cheating on him.He wrote: “She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together… But I mean 20?!!!!”advertisementIronically, Rita appeared to eventually respond to Rob by saying she wouldn’t talk about her relationship in public.She said: “When you are involved with someone for a while and they decide to express their feelings to the public, well, that’s not my personal way of therapy but I guess everyone takes split-ups differently.”last_img read more

The Freshman Connection

Ohio State football’s current freshman class might hold a go-to offensive duo that Buckeye Nation could enjoy for years to come in quarterback Braxton Miller and wide receiver Devin Smith.Miller and Smith have combined for three touchdowns through the Buckeyes’ first four games, and at least one OSU coach expects the first-year duo’s productivity to continue.In both players’ first game in Scarlet and Gray on Sept. 3 against Akron, Miller found Smith in the end zone late in the contest for his first career touchdown pass. Smith’s catch, which went for 14 yards, was his first career touchdown as well.The two freshmen didn’t stop there.On Saturday against Colorado, Miller linked with Smith on a 32-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.Smith described that play as “too easy” for he and Miller.“(Colorado) played a little outside on me,” Smith said. “And I ran a post on that play and I was wide open.”The next time the players connected for a touchdown — a fade by Miller in the third quarter, which required Smith to catch the ball and drag his feet in the end zone — was evidence enough to suggest that the two players might be developing an on-field relationship, which players and fans alike can rely on.“(Smith and I are) comfortable in practice in the things we do,” Miller said. “We take time out to throw the ball.”Offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Jim Bollman said he hadn’t initially considered the burgeoning relationship between Smith and Miller.Bollman said it makes sense that the two players would be helping each other succeed.“Well, it’s interesting because I hadn’t thought about that at all,” Bollman said. “Naturally, both players coming in together at the same time, you can see that situation evolving between receivers and quarterbacks who are getting some opportunities to play early.”Of the five passes Miller completed against the Buffaloes, Smith caught three for a total of 64 yards.Smith said the relationship fans see between he and Miller on the field extends far beyond Ohio Stadium and the practice fields.“(Miller) is sort of quiet, funny a little bit,” Smith said. “We walk to class. Everybody’s asking him questions and stuff like that, he’s real cool about it. I think that’s what makes him a great kid.”After Smith’s three catches for 64 yards on Saturday, he is now tied for the team lead in receptions with eight and leads in team in receiving yards with 183.And how’s this for a relationship — the night before the Colorado game, Smith even said he dreamt about catching touchdown passes from Miller.“That’s what I was thinking about the whole time,” Smith said.Other freshmen, including receiver Evan Spencer and linebacker Ryan Shazier, have seen playing time for the Buckeyes, but Miller and Smith have set themselves apart from their classmates.Bollman is optimistic the Miller-Smith partnership will evolve as the team moves into conference play.“It’s good to see, no question about it,” Bollman said. “We hope (they) continue to improve.”Miller agreed.“We (Smith and Miller) are getting a connection on the field,” he said. “(We’ll) just keep working for the next game.”Miller and Smith will attempt to continue their shared success on Saturday when OSU hosts Michigan State in its Big Ten opener.

Morgan We lacked cutting edge

first_imgLeicester City captain Wes Morgan has urged his team to be more clinical in the final third after their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.Leicester City created a lot of chances in their game with Tottenham but failed to convert as Heung-min son and Dele Alli scored to give the visitors all three points, and Morgan hopes they can more clinical in future matches.“We’ve come into the game in good form, especially at home we feel confident,” Morgan told the club’s website.“Before tonight we were seven games unbeaten. We wanted to continue that but today we didn’t have that final cutting edge.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“We kept them quiet for the majority of the game, I think someone said their first shot on target was the goal, which was a testament to how we played in the first half.“Going in at 1-0 down at half-time, at that time of the game is hard to take but we tried to bounce back but couldn’t find our way to the goal. They found that second goal and it was uphill from then.“Looking back there were a few things we could’ve done to try and prevent that first goal – to try and block the shot or try and close down the space quicker.“Credit to the striker (Son Heung-Min), he scores good goals all the time, he’s a threat at any stage of the game. There’s nothing much we could do about that.”last_img read more

Politano geared up for PSV clash

We’re a strong team and we must always aim to go far, in all competitions.”last_img read more
