Leeds-based software developer Panintelligence has been appointed by a Cheshire hydraulics firm that has helped to restore three iconic Concorde aircraft.

Hydraulics Online, based in the south Cheshire town of Alsager, has helped to restore droop-nose functionality on Concordes at Manchester Airport, the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, and the Brooklands Museum in Surrey.

The business supplied tailored hydraulic system designs to restore the aircraft’s famous ‘droop’ nose action in time for Concorde’s 50th anniversary celebrations last month.

The business has installed Panintelligence Pi software - a secure cloud-based business insights and analytics platform providing real-time dashboards. 

“We needed software that could plug into our Sage system, enabling us to turn the rich but inaccessible data we hold into valuable business knowledge that will help us to scale Hydraulics Online and develop both our domestic and export strategy,” said Helen Tonks, Operations Director at Hydraulics Online.

“The Panintelligence platform, which we installed in December, has pinpointed the US and India as growth markets for us and we are working to exploit their export potential. Although the insight has come from our own data, we would not have had that visibility without the high-tech but incredibly user-friendly new data analysis software.”

Panintelligence CEO Zandra Moore added: “It’s great to be working with a pioneering organisation like Hydraulics Online. Our dashboard and analytics products are a unique platform that we have developed over many years.

"They are an affordable way for small businesses to release insights and value from their data in real time without any compromise of security.”
