Four award-winning SAS implementations


Meet the 2010 Enterprise Excellence Award Winners

Want to cut processing time from hours to seconds? Save millions in operating costs?

Then take a lesson from our 2010 Enterprise Excellence Award winners. Congratulations to these outstanding SAS customers who each took the stage last night to describe what they’ve accomplished with SAS:

Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications provider, uses SAS to achieve a single view of customers across the enterprise and provide targeted products and services. With SAS, the company has reduced job processing times from 11 hours to 10 seconds.

Canada Post, Canada’s primary postal service, delivers more than 11 billion pieces of mail each year to 14.7 million destinations. The company uses SAS to improve workplace safety and set optimal pricing, saving Canada Post more than US$5 million in 2009. The SAS solution “paid for itself in spades,” said Canada Post award recipient Brian Shea.

GE Rail Services uses SAS to improve credit and collections processes, comply with regulatory requirements, and to drive down operating costs. By using SAS to manage railcar maintenance and transport, the company has saved more than $1 million so far this year.

Lloyds Banking Group, the largest retail bank in the UK, uses SAS risk analytics to analyze mortgages, consumer banking, fraud, Basel II, collections and recoveries, forecasting and impairment functions. The company anticipates $50 million in savings from using SAS to build better risk models.
