Scott worked with us for 9 years commencing in a consulting role and progressing through to managing our Eastern Australian region and then our business development globally. It didn’t seem so at the time but I now realise that the time Scott spent working in other organisations has helped grow his skills to a point where he returns to the challenge of filling the most senior operating role in our organisation. I believe Scott’s return, combined with the Capital Intensive Industry experience of our Executive Directors and our consulting and technical teams, heralds a new era for COSOL and our customers.” said Brad Skeggs, Managing Director. Scott commented “having worked in asset intensive industries with global technology firms, I saw a gap in capability for consulting firms that understand the intersection between the business and technology.  In COSOL, I find a company that not only understands it but provides a pragmatic way for asset intensive organisations to drive step change business improvement by leveraging proven technologies.  I am excited about the opportunity to lead the COSOL team and I look forward to working with our clients to realize value in their technology investments.”.  Scott returns to COSOL after spending the past 5 years in senior roles with Wipro and IBM. Scott brings a wealth of knowledge as a highly experienced Executive Manager with a proven record of leading diverse teams of professionals to new levels of success in highly competitive markets. Scott’s strong technical and business qualifications, and an impressive track record of hands-on experience in strategic planning, business unit development, project management, product development and system engineering strategies will provide the next level of executive guidance to support COSOL’s rapid expansion.

Ellipse is an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) / Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application suite for asset intensive industries such as mining, defence, energy, public infrastructure and transport. COSOL provides a wide range of business and technical services assisting customers in maximising the business benefits accruing from their investment in this application. Over the past months, COSOL has been working with select Ellipse 8 customers in the establishment of a focused and flexible series of services underpinned by an innovative commercial model allowing customers to “draw down” on specialist services as required from COSOL’s technology centre based in Brisbane, Australia. Mr Brad Skeggs, Executive Director at COSOL elaborated: “A number of our customers are from critical asset-intensive industries and use Ellipse 8 applications. We are always looking at ways to enhance our services to continually meet their needs. Through the establishment of a detailed understanding of the clients’ technical and business environment, along with strong specification and design procedures, we aim to be a world leader in delivering innovative solutions to the business needs of Ellipse 8 users.” The commercial model applied by COSOL allows customers to commit to a modest “block” of development time and then draw down upon this commitment as business improvement, report and governance, and legislative needs arise.  The services include the application of a range of supporting technologies utilised in and around Ellipse 8 for reporting, integration and process optimisation purposes including Groovy, Jasper, Ellipse Connector, a range of relational data base utilities and industry leading reporting applications (e.g. Business Objects). COSOL specialists have a valuable combination of asset intensive industry experience and technology systems expertise. This combination enables them to strategically plan, design, deliver and optimise operational systems and enterprise systems, continually optimise business processes and efficiently solve the most complex issues.
