People. Process. Systems.


Petainer’s reporting was heavily dependent on multiple sources of the same data.  Heavily dependent on labour intensive, manual processes using Excel, PowerPoint, Word, email etc. And heavily dependent on key individuals.

Monthly reporting would not be available until working day 5 or 6.  Real-time operational reporting was not really possible at all – the hours that it took to collate the data meant it wasn’t really real-time!


Optimum evaluated the business intelligence market and recommended Tableau as the best fit for Petainer.

As well as project managing the implementation, Optimum also provided technical expertise to set up a data warehouse which removed the issue of multiple sources of the truth, and resource to develop the reports and BI toolset.

However, Optimum go beyond just the technical BI implementation : driving for root cause data and business process issues to be addressed first, which gives much more meaningful and trustworthy reporting and analytics.

Petainer now has real-time reporting and full business intelligence and analytics capability.  Time and effort is now spent on analysing and understanding the data, rather than collating data – which means faster, better decision making.

This has assisted in improving operational performance and customer service levels.


“I'd worked with Optimum several times before and so I knew the value they would bring to Petainer. We needed more than just a technical implementation: it's the breadth of business and systems knowledge and understanding they bring that adds the value, and the extra mile they go to really get to know your business and your people.

Thanks to Optimum’s expertise we are now able to focus on the business rather than focus on pulling together data for reporting purposes. As Finance Director, that's invaluable. The business insights Optimum have helped us see are providing real, tangible improvements.”
