Simpson Associates have been chosen by Holman Fenwick Willan to implement IBM Cognos Express. Following the appointment, Paul Jenkins, Head of IT Projects and Change at Holman Fenwick Willian had this to say:
“As Holman Fenwick Willan has grown and new systems implemented, the Finance Department found itself relying on a large number of reporting and budgeting applications that were either unsupported or which provided inconsistent messages to the firm. This situation presented a perfect opportunity in 2015 to undertake a review of business requirements with the goal of introducing a single solution capable of delivering a comprehensive budgeting, forecasting and reporting application. IBM Cognos Express was selected as being best able to deliver that capability.
Simpson Associates were initially engaged to undertake the review of the existing HFW systems and to provide recommendations on possible solutions. Following that project, Simpsons were engaged to implement Cognos Express as they were able to demonstrate:
• An excellent record in delivering the system to meet budgeting, forecasting and reporting requirements;
• Proven experience in working for law firms
• A clear understanding of HFW’s requirements and business culture.
The selection process involved a number of other consultancies and whilst they had the technical capability and a clear understanding of requirements, only Simpson Associates had the proven law firm experience. ”
