Nowadays, we have highly specialized tools to work with. This has undeniable pros and the power of this tools make our work stronger, but this myriad of solutions may add some delay to our decisions by switching between tabs, software or just by transferring insights from one app to another.
A business application is a collection of components that provides a business functionality that you can use internally, externally, or with other business applications. These business applications are used to increase or measure productivity and to perform other business functions accurately.
Thanks to LLodi we can create a business data-driven application, that allows you to increase the productivity of your team, by combining operational, integration and analytic capabilities in just one window.
As a proof of concept, we will show you our LLodi Pizza application, that we took to the Innovation Showcase at Qlik Qonnections 2018 celebrated in Orlando.
The use case is creating a sales application that allows the user to create an order based on the previous orders then receiving a confirmation email and being mentioned on Twitter.
We decide to use Salesforce as data source and as the CRM where we will create the orders and Workato as integration tool.
This business application will be located in Qlik Sense, using Qlik analytic capabilities to make our decisions, LLodi to turn decisions into actions and the integration power of Workato to run our workflow.
From the Qlik dashboard the user can design his order, taking decisions based on the previous orders stored in Salesforce. These days instinct is not enough, data-driven decision making help you to get advantage from your competitors. Data leads to insights that you can turn into decisions that improve your business.
Once you made your decisions turn it into actions couldn´t be easier with LLodi. Thank to our forms you can define your actions and get the required data directly from your Qlik app, you can also define some data entry fields to complete your insights with the user experience.
Using hidden fields, we can send to Salesforce all the information about the selected toppings and dough in our pizza and relate them to the applicable price book, we can also retrieve all the required personal data to create order, send the email and the Tweet.
There is no need to copy the information to one tab to another or even leave your Qlik dashboard; Directly from Qlik, working smarter and saving time (and money) in the process.
In this case we are using Workato to run our workflow, automating tasks and getting the work done faster.
But that´s not all, after doing your actions the extension can reload your data. “Close the circle” thank to our write-back capabilities and work always with updated data.
As you can see build a business application in Qlik with LLodi is easy, and provides you a boost in productivity and quickness, allowing your team to take advantage of new opportunities and improve the company’s efficiency.
