Autumn Softworld 2008 – COA Solutions Launches Managed Services and Showcases Systems to Help Businesses Survive Economic Downtu


The leading provider of business management and information systems to the UK mid-market, COA Solutions, is exhibiting its portfolio of accounting, human resource (HR), payroll, document management and business intelligence systems on stands AF203 and HR204 at Autumn Softworld 2008 (14-15 October 2008, Olympia 2, London). ASR Computers, a COA Solutions Company, will also be launching its managed services offering on stand HR204 and COA Solutions customer, Granville Miller, Head of Accounting Policy and Development from Leonard Cheshire Disability, is presenting a Masterclass on the importance and benefits of forecasting and planning software during an economic downturn (11:00 on 15 October 2008).

On stand AF203, COA Solutions is exhibiting its suite of accounting and finance solutions, including financial management, procurement, business intelligence and budgeting, planning and forecasting systems, all of which are key to not only surviving but prospering during the economic slump.

In the HR and payroll section of the show, ASR is launching a new managed service on stand HR204. Historically, the delivery of HR and payroll to businesses as a managed service has only been available to the largest corporations. However, with technology advances, ASR will demonstrate how many companies of all sizes are now benefiting from a managed service. In the current economic climate organisations are looking to services such as these, with a fixed, monthly fee, as cost effective ways to streamline efficiencies.

Stand HR204 will also be showcasing COA Solutions’ full range of human capital management (HCM) products. These include HR Pro from ASR, OpenPeople and business intelligence system, People Analytics.

Furthermore, Softworld attendees are invited to attend the following HR-focused seminars on both days of the exhibition in Softworld’s HR seminar room:

11:00-12:00 – HR Analytics – How HR Can Add Value to Corporate Performance by COA Solutions’ business intelligence consultant, Keith Pickersgill.

13:00-14:00 – The Learning Brain and Chocolate – Maximising the Performance of your Team by Helen Mackinlay from Mackinlay Minds. This ASR Computers sponsored session will explore how to maximise the performance of your team by unlocking the secrets of the brain.
