Business Intelligence and Productivity solutions provider, Circyl, has started 2022 strongly by adding a global manufacturer of pneumatics technology and solutions to its extensive client portfolio.

With over 20,000 employees across 500 offices in 83 different countries, SMC Corporation has built a strong reputation for its commitment to customer satisfaction, having developed a comprehensive automated control equipment portfolio of 12,000 basic models and over 70,000 variations.

Given its position as an industry-leader, the firm is keen to implement a sophisticated Power BI solution that will give them the tools needed to collect data and build insightful reports, allowing them to capitalise on emerging trends and make important business decisions based on the information collected.

SMC has engaged Circyl to deliver an analytics Proof of Concept (POC) that will display consolidated sales performance analysis with data drawn from multiple data platforms including CRM, ERP and HR. The POC will demonstrate how the organisation can best utilise the platform to drive business growth.

Andy McLean, Head of Data & Analytics at Circyl, commented:

“A lot of businesses are beginning to realise the importance of implementing a Business Intelligence solution that will allow them to seamlessly harness data and uncover business-enhancing insights.

“Having previously delivered similar BI projects to other high-profile manufacturing businesses, I am extremely confident that our team has the experience and expertise needed to provide a detailed POC that clearly demonstrates the benefits of having a Power BI Analytics solution.

“Not only this, but our customer-centric approach means that the advice provided will be based on the unique needs and requirements of SMC, instead of following a ‘one size fits all’ approach that would only offer them a generic solution and overview."
