Peacocks installs Attunity Connect to access a greater amount of data at a faster rate than before - driving operational efficiency
Attunity, a leading provider of enterprise-class integration software for real-time and on-demand application and data integration announced today that clothing fashion retail giant Peacocks has implemented Attunity Connect.
Part of Attunity's market leading Attunity Integration Suite (AIS) data integration software, Attunity Connect has been deployed into Peacock's data resource and reporting system at the IT and distribution headquarters in Cardiff in the UK. Peacock's extensive data resource and reporting system helps the centre's staff manage logistics, merchandising, finance, buying and stock distribution operations.
Mark Webbley, operations and development manager at Peacocks, commented: "We needed a data integration product that enabled us to access data and bridge legacy systems, to give us better information and help make the business run more smoothly. After testing a number of data integration solutions, we selected Attunity Connect to provide the link between our new Windows based applications and our existing legacy systems and data."
Implementation of Attunity Connect was extremely fast - it was installed and ready to use within just two days. As a result the application has now been rolled out to over 400 desktops.
Attunity Connect gives Peacocks' in house IT development team the ability to write new applications that access their legacy systems and data, and deploy them directly onto the company's PCs. This allows for a better viewing interface to the data, a greater depth and scope of information and most importantly, the capability to transfer information into Excel.
Webbley commented: "We now make Excel a standard on all screens - if there is a data query, users have the ability to load information into Excel very quickly and with one click of a button. Staff can now access data directly in Excel and create a variety of reports such as financial, stock/inventory, delivery and purchase order reports."
Attunity has given Peacocks the ability to use PCs to quickly access a broad range of historical data about deliveries, orders and stocks as needed. Webbley concludes: "Attunity has enabled us to upgrade our IT systems with PCs - our staff can now view more information at a glance on one screen. We can now access information and reports quickly and in real-time, which is helping us run our operations smoother and more efficiently than ever before.".
