The online marketplace will also be introducing Qlik Sense to enable more in-depth data visualizations to help identify potential growth opportunities.
Notonthehighstreet.com was founded in 2006 as a platform to take the UK’s best, small creative business to a global audience of design hungry consumers and has grown steadily, now featuring in excess of 170,000 unique design led products. The marketplace aims to handpick outstanding small creative businesses and designer makers, bringing them together in one place, making it easy for customers worldwide to browse and buy unique bespoke goods.
By using QlikView, the company will be able to speed up business processes and streamline its increasing reporting needs, making it faster for them to get insight out of the vast amounts of data the site generates.

In addition to deploying QlikView, notonthehighstreet has also purchased visualization platform Qlik Sense for its core data team, who will use it for more advanced data analysis on a self-serve basis – enabling them to create easy to understand visualizations and drill further down into datasets to identify potential operational efficiencies, as well as business opportunities.
