case history


Ballarini is a leading company in the high end of non-stick cooking tools, one of the most important companies in Europe in terms of production (over 12 million pieces per year). The distinctive characteristics of the brand are its strong link with Italian and international culinary tradition, as well as the product’s technological and creative innovation. The company exports 74% of its production to European and non-European markets.

The company needed a modern Management Control System that would allow it to free itself from manual systems and provide for more time-consuming reports (monthly rather than quarterly). The solution had to guarantee: ease of use, flexibility in characterization, aggregation and presentation of data, partial manageability directly by the users. It was therefore necessary to adopt solutions that would allow data integration relating to the Income Statement, Commercial Profitability and Cost of Product.


Ballarini therefore chose to rely on our E3 Performance Management Platform, assessing as strong points:

  • the consolidated experience of Dialog Sistemi in the Industry sector
  • Data warehouse tools for data optimization, acquisition and transformation (ETL), that the platform offers ensuring the necessary flexibility of the applications over time.
  • the front-end and Business Intelligence tools for Analysis and Report
  • the availability of ready to use applications 
  • the flexible, configurable and easy to integrate technology with other data sources

Thanks to the E3 Performance Management Platform Software, in a short matter of time Ballarini successfully achieved its goals, such as:

  • An Increase in operating frequencies with monthly closing times which also allow to adhere to the group’s reporting and consolidation needs 
  • Improved management of variances
  • Integrated and coherent vision between the various areas
  • Possibility of reading in depth and managing production costs
  • Warehouse valorization with updated industrial costa data
  • Construction of a model useful for feeding the standard costs in order to create a normalized margin, able to isolate the cost variances due to production phenomena, therefore supporting the Commercial Area
  • the Activation of the planning and budgeting process
