Lee Robbins began his career in the early 90’s as an end user with a new upstart, SunSystems. Teaching himself the finer configuration options this early career period concluded with him implementing SunSystems for his employer, a successful media company, boasting clients such as The Spice Girls and Pepsi Co., saving a significant implementation cost. He then went on to a successful 17 year career as a Senior SunSystems Application Consultant culminating with 9 years at Infor, the world’s 3rd largest privately owned software company, during which he was exposed to a wide range of industry leading business software applications and innovative solution building.
Those early years as an end user, followed by consulting at numerous companies across the globe with Infor, has built up a customer focused empathy and business understanding that he exploited working at the highly respected Infor Gold Partner, Sapphire Systems, where he was the Global Head of FMS and Business Intelligence practices.
He is now combining customer empathy, specialist product knowledge, and project delivery expertise to provide powerful enterprise level BI, Analytical and Planning software solutions, using industry leading software applications. Using data intelligently has become a mantra he wants all businesses to embrace and is partnering with them to exploit the Intellectual Property buried within their existing systems.
