We have implemented ‘live analytics dashboards’ to a number of our customers which are browser based solutions which you are able to monitor your key key performance indicator’s (KPI’s) and dashboards anywhere. These can then be accessed on the move using your mobile devices such as phones and ipads. This can be bespoke to the data and sources of data available to you. in addition we also provide some of our customers KPI packs including hard copies detailing key business KPI’s and using detailed graphs to trend variances.
We have access to advanced tools such as SPSS, Cognos and Watson allowing us to drill right into data to understand it in ways you would have not previously thought of, this really helps our customers understand root causes of their operations they were previously unaware of the impact.
We also have advanced tools to create many visual options for representing your data including heat maps to show volumes and sales by particular areas, countries or regions.

Even with the best analytical tools and systems, your information is worthless if you have bad data. Having clean accurate data is critical to any analytics project or process. To capture the most wealth from your data you must have a strategy to identify, capture and store that data to then enable you to analyse and visualise that data as meaningful information. We will work with you right through this data value chain, firstly on the process of identifying the data required, how you record it, how it is stored and then how we can transform this into meaningful information. this can be in the form of live dashboard, kpi packs or bespoke analytical projects.
Businesses are just beginning to harness the power of AI and turning data into new ways of doing business. We can help you mine your data for insights to enable you to make more informed decisions. Through technology you can teach your systems to learn to predict potential outcomes. This could be to make forecasting or growth decisions based on a number of potential scenarios we could develop using your data.
