"CNS has improved our control and overall management of our foreign exchange exposures"

Vulcan Steed Ltd

“An unexpected bonus is that CNS Treasury has proved to be the sharp end of our financial analysis because it's able to highlight through bar charts and line graphs data entry issues in Dynamics. CNS’s ROI has proven to be short because foreign exchange cover is costly if taken too late, too much or too little.”

Wayne Leach

Former CFO

Westland Milk Products

"We had never managed to get any data out of our old ERP in a format that could even be keyed into a spreadsheet. The integration of CNS and Dynamics AX was a big step forward from that perspective. We could suddenly get data out easily from AX and put it into CNS"
