Implementing an Online Dashboard to Support Executive Decisions
The over-burdened analytics team was unable to keep up with the increasing demand for data analytics reports from key stakeholders. We overhauled the reporting process and introduced online, easy to understand dashboards that gave leadership what they needed.
The client’s data analytics teams were unable to keep up with executive demands for timely, accurate information.
- Decision-making process required a lot of guesses without the reports to support decisions
- Narrow bandwidth on the in-house analytics staff resulted in reports being dropped or not created at all
- Needed specific analytics across certain product portfolios to identify market opportunities in new regions.
