  • Virgin Atlantic

    The challenge

    Anari has worked with Virgin Atlantic on a wide variety of business challenges. Members of the Anari team designed and developed their first PNR data warehouse (a forerunner of our current SAND data warehouse) using operational data extracted from the HP Shares reservation system. They also converted it to become a wider commercial solution with the addition of Ticket data from the VS Revenue Accounting system.

    The solution

    The Anari team has assisted with various commercial projects involving airline data – from developing a Management Information Strategy, to creating a database of unique customers, and more recently to extracting forward booked passenger details for use in the VS Customer Marketing Database.

    We’ve been working with Anari since they were established in late 2006, and have a key dependency on the booking data warehouse they built for us to feed and underpin our global data-driven marketing activities.

    The Anari team completely understand our business requirements and the challenges we face.  This has helped us forge a collaborate partnership continuously improving the solution, driven by their wealth of support and airline data expertise when and where it really counts.

  • Ineos

The delivery included a series of planning and forecasting reports, skills transfer to an in-house team of analysts, and ongoing support.

  • United Utilities

    Anari was engaged to review the heavily manual process of creating Property Search information for both domestic and commercial customers, automating the process of data collection and report generation wherever possible.

  • Highways England

    The challenges

    Highways England has many complex supply chain requirements, such as performance management of Service Providers (who maintain the strategic road network) and Major Projects (who extend and enhance national infrastructure).  

    The solution

    The Anari team has been engaged on a variety of Business Intelligence (BI) projects for Highways England. This has ranged from Business Analysis to design, build and ongoing support of a Performance Management Solution for the division that manages contract performance for c.£2Bn of spend on the strategic road network. The team has also been involved with data modelling and reporting for Integrated Asset Management, Programme Development and Major Projects areas of the business.  

    We have worked with Anari for five years or so. They started off providing a Business Analyst for our BI programme, and we realised quite early on that there was potential to use their expertise more widely in the area of performance management.

    They have specified and built a very flexible balanced scorecard and reporting solution which enables us to automatically produce our monthly reporting pack. In doing so they have proved to be excellent data analysts and advisors, who are especially good at translating complex requirements into practical deliverables.
