Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

I use Qlik Sense Desktop to monitor compliance with expense reporting policies. We use it in the Finance department to provide insight to managers and approvers in Concur as to how their direct reports are following expense policy. We also use the data to identify users who repeatedly violate the expense policy so we can correct behavior.

Pros

  • Qlik is easy to set up to do basic visualizations
  • The ability to share via e-mailed reports improves efficiency
  • Support is always available

Cons

  • Additional training
  • Industry specific examples
  • Nothing additional
  • Qlik has allowed me to highlight areas in expense reporting that need correction. This information is shared with managers to take corrective action with their direct reports to improve accuracy and completeness in expenses.
  • Using Qlik to correct behavior in expense reporting has save time in fixing errors in those expense reports that need remediation by reducing the number of reports that need to be addressed.
  • The risk of fines and reputational harm that could result in inaccurate federal disclosures is reduced through using the tool to identify areas where employees need additional training with expense reporting.
I used Tableau at a previous organization, Qlik was provided to me by IT at my current organization. I have also used PowerBI. All three products provide the functionality I need. However, it would be good if the end user could create the dashboards and visualizations without the need to employ a developer.
Qlik allows me to quickly process data and tell the story. The visualizations allow me to quickly tell the story and tailor that story to the specific audiences. We use this to identify areas within our expense reporting tool where we need to provide additional training or correct behavior to bring employees in compliance with our expense reporting policies.
