“We are using BNW’s PowerConnect© to extract iPhone 10 sales data from our SAP ECC System and correlated the sales information with device activation data from our mobile towers in real-time. The resulting insights helped us to gain a better understanding of our customer buying behavior.

Having started only a few weeks earlier, we got the PowerConnect solution ready for the major sales campaign thanks to rapid deployment option and pre-delivered content of PowerConnect.”
