ProStrategy Business Solutions, helping local Cork Companies to deliver data-driven decision making paving the way for smarter decisions and increased sales revenues.


ECCO Ireland pair up with ProStrategy to Optimise sales performance with data-driven insights.  
 
“With IBM Cognos Analytics powering our reporting function, we are much better prepared to adapt and overcome the challenges that we will encounter as the retail industry changes in the future.”
—Paul Lyons, Managing Director, ECCO Ireland
 
 
Enlisting the assistance of IBM Business Partner ProStrategy, ECCO upgraded its analytics capabilities by implementing IBM Cognos Analytics, paving the way for smarter decisions and increased sales revenues.
 
“IBM Cognos Analytics came highly recommended by our long-established partner ProStrategy,” says Lyons. “Compared to other analytics solutions, we saw that Cognos would provide the functionality and rapid insight that we required at a price point that matched our budget.”

ProStrategy implemented IBM Cognos Analytics for ECCO on-premises and connected the solution to ECCO’s ERP system - enabling the company to harness data from different areas of the business, including point-of-sale devices in each of its stores. 
 
To minimize disruption and enable users to access their data in a familiar format, ProStrategy helped the company’s business analysts to re-build the ECCO Economy dashboard in IBM Cognos Analytics.
 
“We were especially attracted to the self-service report building capabilities of Cognos, because they give our analytics team greater freedom to build, optimize and tailor reports to our specific needs. Furthermore, with an on-premises solution, we can maintain full control over our data and optimize performance by keeping the analytics platform close to our source systems.
 
“Thanks to the expertise and assistance we received from ProStrategy, we managed to implement the solution rapidly and effectively while causing minimal disruption to our business - helping us to maintain excellent customer service across our stores during the implementation phase.”
