As the first phase of Symington’s Cognos Express project to implement “weekly commercial reporting” draws to a close, we are delighted to announce that we have been commissioned to implement phase two of the wider project, extending the application to provide “monthly commercial reporting and business unit analysis”. In subsequent phases the application will be further extended to provide both commercial and operational planning, followed by financial reporting and planning.
“Symington’s are now seeing the value of their investment in Cognos Express and the IBM Cognos TM1 platform as they continue the transformation of their commercial reporting applications. Simpson Associates have worked closely with Symington’s in the last six months to train their people, architect and build the reporting application and help manage the project to deliver real business benefit”
“Simpson Associates have worked with us through a collaborative approach, delivering a bespoke solution to address the specific needs of our business. Commercial reporting is a key driver in allowing management to make agile decisions in the dynamic food sector. Simpson’s understood this perfectly and provided expert insight into the development of a tool that has vastly improved the consistency and speed of our reporting. We look forward to working with them on phase two as we extend the solution to include monthly reporting.”
