G. Costa to Reduce Reporting Effort by 40% With Geac Performance Analyser

    Waltham, Massachusetts and Studley, England (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - New Reporting Solution to Go Live by End of April

WALTHAM, Massachusetts and STUDLEY, England, January 26 /PRNewswire/ --

    G.Costa, a UK food manufacturer most famous for its Blue Dragon sauces,  has invested in a new reporting solution from enterprise software company  Geac(R) (TSX: GAC, NASDAQ: GEAC). Performance Analyser is now being  deployed to users and is expected to be in full production by the end of  April 2006. The system will provide unprecedented 'in depth' access to  information held within the company's enterprise resource planning (ERP)  system - Geac System21, which operates on an IBM iSeries server. All  managers will soon have easy, browser-based access to data, releasing the  IT and finance department from the burden of generating reports.

    Dale Coveney, Commercial Finance Manager for G. Costa, said:

    "To date I have spent around two days a week merely generating reports  for our sales and marketing managers. Once we're live on Performance  Analyser they will have ready access to detailed pre-formatted reports  themselves. Previously I was spending 40% of my time producing information  whereas soon I will be reinvesting that time in analysing critical business  information to aid the business."

    The contract was awarded to Geac after a thorough review process that  included Cognos and Business Objects, as explained by G. Costa's Head of IT , Glen Boyle:

    "Instead of doing a simple beauty parade we gave each company a detailed set of our data and said 'show us what you can do with this.' It  worked extremely well as we could get a real feel for the products'  capabilities within our own environment. It helped us dismiss one vendor  straight away and the other showed that it would take an extra three months  to create the metadata and the data extracts. This was just too long. The  Geac solution was not only the most functional but it could be deployed  extremely quickly, as it has a semi-prebuilt universe over the System21 data."

    Phase one of the deployment will involve rolling out the solution to  sales managers by February 2006. Previously they either went without data,  as it was too difficult for them to extract it themselves or they used out- of- date information, once the IT and finance departments had caught up  with their back log of data requests. Instead, Performance Analyser will  provide them with real time access to centrally held data.

    Phase two will involve demonstrations to other areas of the business to  identify their precise reporting needs. Finally Performance Analyser will  be used to provide advanced analytical capabilities on profitability by  product, category, customer, and salesman. In this way G. Costa will have  ultimate control over margin performance across the entire business.
