Client Profile

Customer Name: ETI

Established: 1950

Employees: 2,200

Sector: Manufacturing


Since 1950, ETI has grown into the world’s leading provider of products and services in the field of electrical installations and recently the leading manufacturer of technical ceramic, plastic and technical rubber products, tools and equipment.

A substantial element in the company’s growth strategy are its subsidiaries in Slovenia and abroad, and close cooperation with selected strategic partners. ETI employs more than 1600 people, and its products are sold in more than 60 countries all over the world. The company is investing a lot in research & development and innovative activities. It is one of the first Slovenian enterprises which have acquired the quality certificate ISO 9001 and environment management certificate ISO 14001.


ETI implemented Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE) in 2009, at the same time as they started with an EPM implementation at the ETI group level.

In 2012 ETI had a need to automate their planning process, so they implemented Hyperion Planning for their sales, purchase, and production planning. It was tightly integrated with EPM and BI systems. ETI discovered that despite an EPM implementation, they still faced challenges around financial consolidation and reporting at a group level. This lead to the decision to implement Hyperion Financial Management in 2017.

With a tightly integrated Oracle EPM and BI platform, ETI reduced the need to report in the EPM system and followed Version 1’s recommendation to use a proven Oracle BI tool to do reporting and ad-hoc analysis, saving time and money that would have been needed to develop bespoke reporting.

We were extremely satisfied with the professional approach from Qubix / Version 1. Their suggestions and quick response times impressed us. We know that we can count on them when we have any kind of problems regarding the solutions they cover. We are confident that they will answer our phone calls, even in unofficial working time, in emergency situations that may occur.
