Our customers have delivered some amazing projects over the years. In this session we heard from four customers who kindly volunteered to talk about projects they had delivered and the business benefits that have been realised.
Infor SunSystems 6.3 can be deployed from the LAKE cloud or on premise. It includes a new integrated document management option and a powerful social business platform that brings workflow tasks and notifications to the attention of users in modern, simple social media style feeds.
Infor BI Q&A 11 uses web technologies to connect to your data sources on the cloud or on premise. A single Excel plug-in unifies the power of Q&A XL and Executive, allowing you to analyse and explore business data with functions like Drill, Expand, and Breakout without ever having to leave Excel.
Proactis Portal is a cloud-based platform on which you collaborate with suppliers to deliver procurement savings, improve procurement processes, reduce risk, ensure compliance and secure strategic benefits.
In this session we demonstrate how the platform empowers you to manage, monitor and evaluate supplier relationships and contracts, link these into SunSystems and Proactis P2P and streamline and control the sourcing and tendering process.
IBM Planning Analytics is a powerful, flexible and scalable planning and reporting solution.
In this session you will see how the solution streamlines processes; how it guarantees a single version of the truth; how it integrates with SunSystems; and most importantly how plans that are visible to senior management are truly aligned with the insights and actions of managers across the organisation.
In this session we presented two Proactis options that do not require full Purchase-to-Pay.
Proactis Accounts Payable Automation streamlines data capture, invoice registration, matching and approval. It delivers a more efficient method of document storage and a simpler means of retrieval.
Proactis Staff Expenses enables employees to submit expense claims and supporting attachments anytime, anywhere. In this session we ssee how spend on corporate cards is captured and authorised, and how all spend is approved and validated according to your own workflow rules and expense policies.
Proactis ‘17 is the very latest release of this world-class application. In this session we introduced some of its exciting enhancements for usability, mobility, reporting and technology. We also introduced Proactis Marketplace, the new cloud-based eCommerce extension for Proactis P2P that improves your buying experience, brings you closer to preferred suppliers, controls what employees can buy, and facilitates electronic trading.
IBM Cognos Analytics provides class-leading self-service analysis and dashboarding capabilities, allowing you to identify and act on insight quickly and confidently.
In this session you will see how the engaging end user experience of Cognos Analytics empowers business users to create and personalise dashboards and reports on their own - while providing IT with a proven and scalable solution that is available on premise or on the cloud.
