We simplify data management and reporting

Too many people have the job of exporting data from systems into Excel, and then analyzing the data and creating charts in Excel. If this describes you, let us show you how you can save time, improve accuracy and focus on taking your business to the next level with well-informed decisions.

Spending too much time in Microsoft Excel?

There are better ways to extract data, organize it and report on it. Microsoft and other companies have released tools that make data management and reporting easier.

There is no need to have multiple Excel files, or to manually add new data each week. Reduce the number of VLOOKUPs and other formulas in your spreadsheets.

Interested in an efficient way to do reporting and data analysis?

Take a look at our offers below and get started towards a beautiful future of hands-free, visual reporting.

Five common data problems we solve:

1. Too much time spent creating reports, and not enough time analyzing what the data says
2. Complicated, fragile Excel spreadsheets leading to doubts about data accuracy and maintainability
3. Not having the right reports, or having reports that are usually out of date
4. Charts and tables are bland to look at. Desire to have visually stunning reports.
5. Cannot answer “what-if” questions … the spreadsheets or charts are too inflexible for drilling down, slicing and dicing.
