Apex Introduces Business Intelligence & Analytics Platform

Apex Lenz goes beyond reporting to provide powerful, actionable insights in a simple, comprehensive view

Viewports Visualize Operational Data: Apex Lenz comes with easy-to-understand viewports/dashboards and customized reports tailored to each customer’s organizational needs.

CINCINNATI, August 28, 2018 — In direct response to customer needs, Apex Supply Chain Technologies® has launched Apex Lenz™, its robust business intelligence and analytics platform. Apex Lenz analyzes critical data from any Apex device through custom data visualizations to help customers quickly spot opportunities that drive greater efficiencies, optimize productivity and reduce costs throughout their business.

Designed to be the most agile analytics platform in the industry, Apex Lenz addresses a common big data issue. While companies collect data for most operational processes, many do not have the time or resources needed for its strategic analysis. In fact, Forrester Research estimates as much as 73 percent of data collected by companies is not used for a strategic purpose.
