Launches public price dashboard to make the search of products and services purchased by the federal government clearer and more efficient
“We needed to solve this issue as soon as possible when we heard about Qlik solutions. So, we talked to one of their Master Reseller, Inteligência de Negócios (IN), and developed the portal in record time,” said Daniel Rogerio, General-Coordinator of Government Procurement Systems at the Ministry of Planning. “Now, in addition to ensuring total transparency to citizens, the new Price Dashboard facilitates taking budgets and marking prices, which allows us to buy faster and at a lower price.”
The portal project began in November 2016, and in just two weeks the dashboards and visions were ready with the support of Inteligência de Negócios. The organizations have focused on improving usability and on the website design, in order to make it as intuitive as possible. Scheduled to be released in late 2018, the site went live in April 2017.
“The government already had a platform called SIASG/Comprasnet, which recorded all information on purchases made and approved. Therefore, we just had to organize the database and use our expertise to expose everything in a simple and efficient way,” pointed Clayton Montarroyos, Director of the Government Unit at IN.
All of this was possible through two solutions from Qlik: Qlik Sense, the company's self-service BI solution, and the Qlik Analytics Platform, an open platform on which Qlik’s global community of developers can build custom analytic applications based on rich front-end and back-end Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
“Together, these tools allow the creation of simple, complete visualizations that can be used by anyone, even without technical knowledge. This was the key to the Ministry of Planning, since the idea is to encourage massive use of the Price Dashboard,” explained Marcelo Rezende, Country Manager of Qlik in Brazil. “We are glad to support Brazilian government in its goal of becoming ever more transparent and efficient.”
