Software developer Panintelligence is providing its data analytics and business intelligence (BI) platform to a hydraulic engineering firm that has helped restore droop-nose functionality on three Concorde aircraft at Manchester Airport, the Imperial War Museum, Duxford and the Brooklands Museum in Surrey.
South Cheshire-based Hydraulics Online supplied the tailored hydraulic system in time for Concorde’s 50th anniversary celebrations in March.
Hydraulics Online provides specialist support for design and engineering projects, as well as sourcing elusive or obsolete hydraulic equipment. It was started from home by husband and wife Mark and Helen Tonks in 2004 and now has seven employees and customers in 130 countries,
It is using the secure cloud-based BI and analytics platform, Panintelligence Pi, plugged into its Sage system to turn rich but inaccessible data into business knowledge that can help target UK and export markets.
Helen Tonks said: “The Panintelligence platform, which we installed in December, has pinpointed the US and India as growth markets for us and we are working to exploit their export potential. Although the insight has come from our own data, we would not have had that visibility without the hightech but incredibly user-friendly new data analysis software.”
