#1 KNOWING WHAT TO MEASURE & WHEN

We only measure the financial stuff, because it’s easy.

Historically, businesses have gotten away with producing a P&L and using that as the sole mechanism for 'measuring' business performance. The reality is this leaves businesses blind to the majority of issues affecting them today.

One of our managers knows how to use Spreadsheets, but the others don’t, so we don’t report on those areas.

It's equally important to measure all departments and functions of a business. Managing a department without measures is the like driving down the motorway in a blindfold.

THIS Data Agency work with your teams to design new and robust measurement for your business that helps you manage all 5 key Stakeholder groups: Investors, Employees, Customers, Suppliers & Regulators. Balanced Scorecard improved.

#2 DATA IS STORED IN DISPARATE SYSTEMS

We have an ERP, Sage, CRM, GA & HR System; all different.

Having different systems for each department can leave you with logistical nightmares when one system has lots of reports but the others have very few or none at all.

We have 10’s of spreadsheets in the business that get updated with manual information

Sometimes you don't have a software system recording key information, a series of spreadsheets is used and maintained by key individuals. This information is often silo'd and only a few people ever get to unlock its value.

THIS Data Agency build Data Connectors and use API’s to bring all of your data together, including Excel files you might have stored on your internal network, so you can have one safe and secure BI environment to see all of your reports. One login.

#3 REPORTS TAKE TOO LONG & COST TOO MUCH

My Senior Managers spend 6 days a month creating reports

Many businesses have issues where senior managers and a whole team of administrators pour hours and hours of time every month into producing management information. Imagine the cost saving to the business if this was automated?

Managers spend so long creating the reports they don’t have time to analyse them and take action

Senior managers could be adding huge value to your business every day, rather than spending that time creating reports.

THIS Data Agency can automate all of the data collection process and create Reports & Dashboards you can view at any time from anywhere on mobile or computer – no man hours required.

#4 REPORTS ARRIVE TOO LATE AND DATA IS OUT-OF-DATE

Reports take so long to produce we are often talking about things that happened 6-8weeks ago in board meetings.

So often when data is crunched manually, in spreadsheets by humans, the reports can be weeks and sometimes months out of date. If we have a problem, we need to know now. When opportunities present themselves, the sooner we can seize them, the better chance we have of growing the business.

In busy periods of trading we process 1,000’s orders per second

Wouldn't it be ideal to be able to look at your stock control and staffing resources in real-time during your peek trading times to ensure your customer is getting the best possible service?

THIS Data Agency can give your managers ‘live’ information. We can give you a BI platform that reports in Real-Time. There’s no need to wait to find out how that new strategy is turning out.

#5 REPORTS OFTEN HAVE ERRORS OR INACCURACIES

We once spent 90 minutes in a board meeting discussing a business issue, that turned out to be a reporting error.

When you have a room full of senior people its important that every minute is focused on adding value to the business. When meetings are taken-up with confusion and blame due to the miss-reporting of a KPI, its a crime.

When I see a mistake in a report, i cant help wondering if there are others.

Humans are fallible and were not designed to do repetitive tasks, like data entry. If a process can be defined, it can be automated & errors eradicated.

THIS Data Agency can remove the human error from your data and reports through API connections and automation. We remove human error, by removing humans from the process. Trust the robots.
