RPMI Railpen (Railpen) has selected and implemented Opus Nebula’s Reporting as a Service solution for its client investment reports. The Reporting as a Service® solution replaces a legacy reporting system and Railpen’s clients will now benefit from richer report content and shorter delivery times. The solution was delivered on time and within the original project budget.
Railpen was advised in late 2015 that their existing reporting solution was being withdrawn at the end of 2016. They had to select, implement, test and launch a new reporting solution within a year. If that wasn’t challenging enough they also wanted to review and improve the report content.Following a robust selection process, including a proof of concept, contracts were signed with Opus Nebula in July 2016.
For the remainder of the year as data feeds evolved from Railpen to feed the new format of a report, the capabilities of the new pack evolved iteratively with regular demonstration and review. Speed and ease of on-boarding are proven characteristics of Opus Nebula’s Reporting as a Service® offering, which enables significantly faster, more cost-effective deployment than is possible with traditional client reporting system implementations.
Geoff Smith, IT Programme Manager at Railpen, commented: “The speed and ease that Opus Nebula were able to on-board Railpen to their Reporting as a Service® solution was very impressive. Implementation of a traditional buy and build model would simply not have been possible in the timeframe. However, despite being fast to deploy, there is no compromise on report flexibility and quality. Throughout the project Opus Nebula’s ongoing support and responsiveness was a significant factor in helping us to meet our deadlines. Opus Nebula has enabled Railpen to fully automate the reporting processes leading to significant improvement in the consistency and quality of reports, while simultaneously reducing process risk. We are now able to deliver a superior level of service to our clients with greater cost efficiency.”
