American Suzuki Motor Corp. has implemented a new platform to centralize financial, inventory and sales data for the company’s powersports division.
The platform, developed by Actuate Corp. (NASDAQ: ACTU), produces a number of reports, including inventory management, financial analysis and dealer ranking. Suzuki’s field operations will rely on Actuate inventory reports to understand dealer’s floor plans, inventory types, inventory quantities and sales information.
“We needed a way for our field and corporate offices to receive reports that consolidated inventory, financial and sales information,” said Steve Chavez, credit manager at Suzuki. “With Actuate’s Enterprise Reporting applications, all of our team members now have an easy-to-use, Web-based tool to access inventory management data and dealer performance. Now our management team can proactively address underperforming dealerships by shifting inventory or consulting with dealers on areas for improvement.”
Actuate, based out of San Francisco, has more than 4,000 customers globally in a range of business areas, including financial services and the public sector. The company was founded in 1993.
