Online PR News – 05-February-2010 – – London UK – February 2010

BOARD along with their Business Partner, Altius Consulting, are pleased to announce their latest client, New England Seafood.

New England Seafood’s current Business Intelligence & Corporate Performance Management systems are not allowing them to produce the type of reporting or rolling forecasts critical to their business. Data ‘silos’ and lack of aggregation have meant that they are utilising Excel as a bridging tool. Choosing BOARD will enable them to align their systems and give them a unified approach to BI & CPM, all in a single product.

Initially the implementation, carried out by Altius Consulting will focus on 12 -24 month rolling sales forecast. Once complete the project is likely to extend to key account and production planning, historical analysis, reporting, profitability modeling etc

Charles Noble, Finance Director at New England Seafood says “As we made our way through a detailed review of the market for financial planning software, BOARD really impressed us with its clear user interfaces, lack of separation between planning and analysis functionality, and the relative ease with which we can administer the system in-house.

In choosing Altius to assist us in the implementation of BOARD, we were clear that we would be working with a team of proven experts who would take the time to understand the challenges within our business so that they can tailor the
BOARD implementation appropriately. We look forward to completing the initial phase of the project and progressing to subsequent stages which will further improve our forecasting and BI capabilities”,

Dominic Policella, UK Director BOARD says “We are delighted that our partner Altius Consulting have been chosen by New England Seafood to deliver their Sales Forecasting in BOARD. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with both organisations”

John Gateley, Managing Director, Altius Consulting comments “We’re excited to work with New England Seafood to deliver an improved Sales Forecasting tool on BOARD technology. Bringing data from across the business to improve decision making and help find new efficiencies is what Altius and BI are all about.”
