At the peak of strategic management: GMCS and Cognos sign a partnership agreement
GMCS, providing an IT consulting services company aiming to improve business efficiency and Cognos Corporation, a leader on the international CPM solutions market have signed a partnership agreement. 

Under the agreement, GMCS is now authorized to implement, promote and market Cognos software solutions in Russia and other CIS countries.CPM Products Department recently established within GMCS is to complement the ERP-system product line already available from the company. The new department specializes in providing the entire range of services – from pre-project consultancy to implementation of business applications and on-the-job training of customer's personnel. It should be noted that GMCS pays special attention to technical support of the implemented solutions. The company has established a system of standards for technical support services which are successfully used at various projects and are also mandatory for the newly-established department.

GMCS has already approached a number of prospective customers and expects to launch a number of major Cognos-based projects soon.

"We are very glad that GMCS, a company with a reputation of highly-professional consultant and innovator, has joined the pool of our partners. We are confident that our cooperation will prove successful and will open new business performance management opportunities for many Russian-based enterprises and companies," said Evgeny Velesevich, Cognos Regional Manager for Russia and the CIS, commenting on the conclusion of the partnership agreement.

"The software product line marketed by Cognos is one of the best in its class. Cognos solutions are easily integrated into all Infor, SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft-based ERP-systems marketed by GMCS," says GMCS Vice-President Ekaterina Voropaeva. "A partnership with this leading designer of analytical business applications is perfectly consistent with our strategy aiming to ensure maximum satisfaction of our customer expectations within the entire range of IT solutions they use."
