Frequently Asked Questions
Can you train me on how to set up dashboards and use the system?
Yes. We help you define your specific KPI (Key Performance Indicator) Measurement Framework and train you on how to build new dashboards and drill-down reporting to discover actionable insights.
Can you help me aggregate and cleanse my data?
Yes. It’s common for data to come from multiple different sources and lack standardized naming conventions. This is one of the leading causes of inaccurate data and reporting. We can help you improve your data aggregation and cleansing processes as either a standalone project or part of a broader business intelligence solution.
Can you help me determine if I need new BI software?
Yes. As standard practice, we’ll help you to decide if it makes more sense for you to make improvements to your existing BI capabilities or select and implement your new BI tools.
