RAF support department tightens its supply chain and adds more value with OpenText Magellan Analytics Suite

The functionality of OpenText Magellan BI & Reporting is very impressive. We can do a lot of the manipulation in the report coding structure itself, rather than having to extract the data and then run macros, which was very time-consuming. What used to take up to an hour now takes just a few minutes.
