What do our customers say?

Global’s acquisition of Exterion Media meant that Global had two businesses whose financial years were out of synchronisation.  Using its “year-end shift” tool the HAYNE Solutions team took two years of Exterion Media’s historical financial data and implemented it in their IBM Cognos Controller database, which saved up to 20 days of work if it was done by manual manipulation.  HAYNE was a reliable choice in terms of delivering the project in a thorough and efficient manner.

We chose HAYNE as our support provider for Cognos Controller as we were looking for a company who had the knowledge and experience to assist us with our Cognos Controller upgrade and the ongoing support of our installation.  We were confident from our initial meeting with HAYNE that they would be capable of this and were proved correct, as the upgrade went extremely smoothly and we were very pleased with the HAYNE consultants on the project. I’d happily recommend HAYNE.

I would highly recommend Cognos Controller as a best in class Financial Consolidation solution which has allowed C&D Foods to streamline both its weekly and monthly reporting cycles. We have integrated Cognos Controller into our Cognos Analytics suite which allows us to easily distribute Financial reports across the business.  The wealth of experience that HAYNE brought to the project was invaluable and contributed greatly to a successful implementation.
