Dealing With A Housing Conundrum
One large issue in recent years facing the department were the housing needs of the prospective citizens. Previously the Migration Board was unable to accurately predict the individuals seeking housing in each region of Sweden. Using Qlik and visualizing the number of individuals on a nationwide map, the Migration Board was able to decrease the wait times for housing and subsequently save funds allocated to helping the immigrants find housing.
This is just one efficiency example, but the key benefit to implementing Qlik was the creation of a case management process within the agency. Previously, the only data that was being tracked were incoming and completed cases. But now every regional office and each user could see the supply chain from every angle: from the initial application being filed to the first stamp on the visa. Now that the Migration Board knows where there are busy areas in the process they can deploy resources to clear the bottleneck. That’s the power of analysis.
“Qlik’s solution enables us to coordinate our efforts right across the country in a completely new way, while at the same time the statistics are more accessible to the people who use them. We can see how many people are on the way in and we can guide personnel to where they are needed the most, which we were unable to do before. By allocating its resources more efficiently, the Migration Board is saving both time and money. We can bring together different information sources and all users can use the same key data, which is extremely valuable. Quite simply, we can work smarter and faster.” Andres Delgado, Head of Statistical Process Control at the Migration Board
