Congratulations to CDS Global clients The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and Bauer Media, who both recently completed successful implementations of Advantage.
The Economist Intelligence Unit is a global leader in country, industry and management analysis, providing trusted business intelligence and advice to over 1.5 million decision-makers from the world’s leading companies, financial institutions, governments and universities. EIU is especially excited about the streamlined renewal processing features in Advantage, and the convenience of meeting their distribution and reporting needs for their 450 publications via jobstreams.

· Hayley Law, CDS Project Manager

Bauer Media is the largest client at CDS Global in the UK. Bauer publishes over 50 magazines, many of them household names in the UK, such as Heat magazine, FHM magazine, and Grazia magazine. They also publish some of the top magazines in various areas of special interest. Their go-live was preceded by a two-week lockdown period comprising mostly 24-hour conversion processing.
Project Managers John Sheehy and Bryan Varblow send out their thanks to everyone who helped on the project.
