Single storage point for new product information helps drive sales

A new user-friendly document management system helps managers locate up-to-date product details and organise workflows, while eliminating the duplication of materials and tasks once and for all. The bespoke SharePoint tool also strengthens business security by ensuring users can only see the information relevant to them.

Advanced data capture system ensures regulatory compliance

A new data warehouse based on cutting-edge Microsoft servers has ensured Nationwide meets its Basel II requirements by guaranteeing that sufficient capital reserves are retained – and being able to demonstrate this to regulators. The system will also help the building society improve its risk management.

Flexible technology to support the client and its customers

An SQL Microsoft server, customised for pharma research and development specialist Radeval, combines a database engine and reporting system for handling advanced metrics data. Radeval’s specialists can now better analyse and improve the performance of its customers with a fully-scalable technology adaptable for future needs.

Consolidating performance in existing markets – and breaking into new ones

The household cleaner manufacturer needed a system for better measuring performance – one which delved deeper than simple sales and financial statistics into areas such as innovation, customer relationships and efficiency.

Smarter supplier management triggers rapid cost savings

An online expenditure analysis system within the sugar supplier’s purchasing team has let managers drive down costs through better supplier control. The integrated Microsoft server allows for more accurate price monitoring, increased frequency of tendering, and improved budgeting/forecasting – all translating into savings within one month of the system’s launch.

New technology transforms performance data into future cost-savings

We used our experience of metrics, scorecard production, Microsoft servers and reporting services to help global household goods manufacturer Unilever monitor and streamline its business processes worldwide.
