Opal Wave continued to expand its roster of big name business clients deploying SAP BPC and BI software for planning, budgeting and consolidation during a highly successful 2016-17 financial year.

Customers recruited during the period included: investment management company Polar Capital; apparel, footwear and fashion accessories expert Global Brands Group; and multinational support services specialist Babcock International Group.

These organisations joined a roster of well-known longer-standing customers, spanning all sectors.

Established clients included: giant betting and gaming group Ladbrokes Coral; baby, toddler and child food manufacturer Organix; and Swedish-based multinational chain Scandic Hotels, as well as North London’s Enfield Borough Council.

Engineering sector clients included US-based Fortune 500 precision engineering company Colfax Corporation and global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald.

Leading Lebanese organisations Bank Audi, which has a presence in 13 countries, and specialist market information company BankData featured in the roll-call of financial industry customers.

Telecommunications clients included: Africell, which has cellular communications companies in four African states; Econet, the diversified telecommunications group operating across a quartet of continents; and Palestinian mobile network operator Wataniya Mobile.

Welding and cutting solutions provider ESAB, specialist products maker Morgan Advanced Materials, Swedish-based industrial tool and equipment manufacturer Atlas Copco, and adhesive-based products specialist Scapa Group featured in the run-down of manufacturing customers.

Opal Wave believes the quality and continued growth of its client list is due to its justified reputation for blending outstanding technical expertise with an understanding of clients’ business planning and consolidation needs and commitment to excellent customer service.

Sales and Marketing Director Simon Bell said:

“Although we’re never complacent, we see no reason why our obviously successful formula shouldn’t continue to attract and retain outstanding clients in the future.

In addition, we feel that factors such as the uncertainties surrounding Brexit will increase our market opportunities. We believe more organisations will need to review their enterprise performance management capabilities and bring state-of-the-art automation to processes such as planning, budgeting, forecasting, consolidation and financial reporting, in which we specialise, as they seek to streamline their operations and have the most accurate possible information on which to base important decisions.”
