"After investigating several systems, we have found the
right integrated software for us. Paprika has a flexible and intuitive interface
that happily deals with the enormous variation in the projects upon which we
work and the tasks that each of them require."
Head of Production
Ward 6 (Sydney, Australia)
"As a multinational company we identified the need of
having the same integrated system implemented in all our businesses around the
world. Paprika was the clear answer to our need."
"We can now create country reports that are fully compatible with the ones created in other parts of our business. Now we can benefit at all levels from this excellent and strategic managerial tool, Paprika, and we have also solved at the same time the worrying issue of OS10 compatibility."
The Analyser functions in Sales, Purchase & Nominal
Ledger allow you to build your own reports and then export them to Excel; once
you have designed the right report for you it can be saved as a template and
used time and time again.
The Analysis Codes allow you to categorise any data that is inputted. You can tailor each analysis code to your requirements and then use them as a report field when using the analyser tool."
"We (dpa) were looking for a software package that
would streamline our management reporting. As a business consultancy, we work
on a project-by-project basis. Tracking costs by job, and being able to quickly
analyse and cut the data in different ways was therefore very important to us.
We also wanted to make the profitability of jobs more visible."
"We chose Paprika, via Agency Software Worldwide, over a number of other well-known suppliers. During the proposal process we found the software to be the most user friendly - with the user interface being the simplest and cleanest (a must for our consultants in order to ensure the new system was used), but with the most powerful analysis and administration tools. We also liked the overall approach, which put strong emphasis on communication and training - as well as getting the implementation right."
"Through the project we found the handover points between different members of the team: sales, SAGE experts, trainers and helpdesk, to be seamless. It's still early days and the business benefits are still to be quantified, however, we believe that Paprika will make a significant contribution to the efficiency of our business."
"Paprika has had a fundamental and beneficial impact
upon the financial management of the Partnership. We are better placed than
ever before to easily measure time spent on projects and the resultant client
profitability. We are looking forward to make use of the project planning
(task) system to enable us to control the need for and cost of freelance staff
during the extremely busy Annual Reporting season when our creative teams and
support staff double in quantity."
The Smiths Partnership LLP (London)
"The 360 Team is a solid, multi-discipline marketing agency with a strong strategy and planned drive for future growth. We had reached the limits of our manual management, purchase and invoicing system which had evolved organically over the last ten years.
Senior management spent 6 months assessing which system would be right for our agency and grilled a number of systems purporting to be the best, but kept returning to Paprika.
We are only in the very early stages of implementation but have been impressed throughout with the Paprika team's commitment, knowledge of our industry, understanding of the challenges that face us and dogged determination to work with us. We are delighted and excited that we are working with the Paprika team to better manage and grow our business as we move into the next phase of growth."

proven system developed exclusively for our industry."

"(Rebus) has given us a level of control, flow though
of information and access that have become indispensable to our day to day
operation. In addition, the immediate visibility of costs has allowed us to
keep client budgets under control."
Susan P Bubenas
Polan & Waski, LLC (New York, USA)
"What gave us confidence in Paprika was the fact that
it is a tried and tested system for the PR industry. Moreover we found that the
consultant had a deep understanding on how we wanted the system to work for us,
to help us achieve our objective of streamlining our business leading to better
service for the client".
"We were not only impressed by the functionality,
interface and ease of use of the system, but also by the friendliness and
knowledge of the Paprika team."
Finance and Administration Director
Response JPS (Madrid, Spain)
"(Rebus) has given me the ability to organize and
review my projects like no other accounting/job costing system.
Where as I felt limited with other accounting packages, I love how Rebus allows me to easily design and customize reports around my needs."
Bemis Balkind (Los Angeles, USA)
"Having used various other systems in the past, I have
found Paprika to be the best out of the lot."
The Finishing Touch (London)
"Paprika has provided a full and detailed answer to a
deeply felt managerial need."
AIGO Comunicazione (Milan, Italy)
"As Financial Controller, it is essential that I have a
system which integrates project management into our corporate financial
reporting, and enables me to meet tight monthly management information
deadlines accurately. Our project managers need to know the status on every
project against budget on a daily basis. Paprika is an excellent facility in
helping us to achieve these goals."
The Partners (London)
went through the buying and implementation process and our expectations of the
system were high. We found the sales pitch very informed, helpful and without
pressure selling. Moreover the training was informative, very thorough, well
planned and interesting for all levels of licences."
