"This helps ensure that the system can be fully optimized by non-technical personnel in JCB's finance departments. As we operate in a fast changing industry, it is particularly important that we can produce timely and accurate information for the JCB board. Using Infor EPM our colleagues around the globe can submit data in a consistent manner, so that it can be collated quickly and easily."
