In the past, monthly production of reports and the analysis of financial gap were created manually, taking days to produce in MS Word from data obtained from Mace’s Business Information System, along with manually collected data. The results were unreliable difficult to produce on a timely basis.
The implementation of the BOARD solution means that Mace now has instantaneous on-screen analysis in the form of a reporting dashboard, something which was not previously available, with automated generation of printed Word documents for senior management meetings. Reports are now produced in minutes, not days, providing consistency and one version of the truth from month to month. The number of people resources required has decreased and any problems can be identified immediately, leading to rapid response.
Les Howell, Head of Bid Management of Mace and delegated Project Sponsor, said “The project has successfully implemented a new management reporting system which details current sales performance and future sales leads and prospects. Accurate and comprehensive monthly reports for sector and main board directors are automatically produced sourcing the latest sales data.”
Dominic Policella, Managing Director of BOARD UK says “I am delighted that Mace has chosen BOARD as their Business Intelligence Solution. They join a growing number of BOARD customers worldwide and I am confident that Mace will see a great return from their investment.”
