About Victorinox – one company, one brand - Victorinox was founded in 1884 by the cutler Karl Elsener in Ibach near Schwyz, which is where the head office is still located today. The family company has about 1,800 employees and eight branches in over 130 countries. As a multi-product brand, Victorinox manufactures top-quality products for use in various areas of life: Swiss army knives, household and professional knives, timepieces, travel gear, fashion and fragrances. What they all have in common is the spirit of the Swiss officer's and sport knife, which the GIs stationed in Europe called Swiss Army Knife for short and made popular in America after the Second World War. Under the slogan "Companion for life", Victorinox wants to be a part of and enrich its customers' daily lives in the form of creative products.

We looked at a number of tools and really liked the overall capabilities Pyramid Analytics had to offer

To support the efficiency and growth of Victorinox Swiss Army, Inc. (VSAI), the North American subsidiary of Victorinox AG, Pyramid Analytics has been tapped to provide “the best visibility into sales and operations activities and to use that visibility to evaluate trends and plan for the future” said Jim Anderson Senior Vice President of Operations of VSAI North America.

The North American headquarters located in Monroe, Connecticut was previously employing ProClarity to enable business users to gain insights into their operations, but needed to find a comparable solution going forward. The important characteristics of choosing a new solution included global scalability and enhanced data mining capabilities, while allowing a simple technical transition, and, most importantly, a seamless conversion for users. “What we liked about Pyramid was the improved functionality over ProClarity including report visualization and the new ways you can slice and dice data. The easy migration of queries and the look and feel being similar to ProClarity were also contributing factors to our decision,” said Anderson.

Pyramid Analytics Business Intelligence (BI) Office Suite provides self-serve Analytics that allows VSAI’s users to leverage the rich functionality of Microsoft SQL Analysis Services, and PowerPivot. Operating either as a standalone BI toolset, or integrated into Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Pyramid provides a complete solution for ad-hoc analysis, dashboards and reporting that is both intuitive and powerful. Designed for the market leading Microsoft BI stack – Pyramid’s interface has both the familiarity and the seamless integration of Office productivity suite, while providing powerful and unique analytic capabilities. bioXL analytics allows users to slice, dice and drill into data intuitively, providing users with the best access to ‘Analysis Services’ functionality. bioPoint dashboards allows business users to easily build and distribute interactive dashboards, with the simplicity of creating a PowerPoint. Pyramid’s BI clients are designed to handle large datasets, and can be rapidly deployed to scale up to thousands of users, delivering solutions ranging from ‘self-service BI’ to ‘enterprise BI’ and ultimately ‘cloud-hosted BI.’

From supporting a variety of users in sales, marketing, accounting and operations, to dedicated data miners to consumers of static reports, “We looked at a number of tools and really liked the overall capabilities Pyramid Analytics had to offer,” Anderson added.
