Analytics Workshop

What is the RentViewer Analytics Workshop?
  • The RentViewer Analytics Workshop is the simplest way to see results from analytics
  • The workshop is a joint effort that combines your business knowledge with our data management and data analysis expertise.
  • The goal of the workshop is to answer a set of questions using data extracted from your systems
  • The questions can be on any topic of your choice
Why is it called a “workshop”?
  • It is called a workshop because it involves some work.
  • You will need to prepare questions, review the analysis and draw conclusions.
  • We do the data prep, build the reports and work with you to explore the data
Why does it have “RentViewer” in the name?
  • The technology that drives the workshops is our RentViewer platform, a collection of softwares and data designed for analysis of real estate data
  • RentViewer is able to connect to property management systems or import data from Excel and other sources
What happens in the Workshop?
    • There are typically three meetings :
    • Meeting #1: Planning
      • Agenda :
        • We work with you to determine what questions you want to be answered from your data
      • Duration: 1 hour
      • Method: WebEx
      • Meeting #2: Analytics Session
        • This meeting happens after the Metric-X team has received your data, imported it into RentViewer, and prepared the analysis to address your questions
        • During the meeting we will visualize the data, look at patterns, drill down into interesting data points, and try to understand what story the data is telling
        • Duration: 2 to 4 hours
        • Method: WebEx
        • Meeting #3: Review, Conclusion
          • This meeting follows up on the analytics session and we jointly summarize the findings
          • Any action items from the prior meeting are addressed before this meeting, and the key reports are reviewed again
          • Follow up tasks are defined
          • The workshop is concluded
          • Duration: 2 to 4 hours
          • Method: WebEx
What preparation is required?
          • Decide what topic you want to focus on
          • Make a list of questions
          • Give us access to the data that will be analyzed
What if our data is a mess?
          • Let’s look at how usable your data is for analysis
          • We can clean the data in many cases
What if our data is hard to get at?
          • The best option for us is to connect RentViewer to your data via a direct database connection or an API
          • If that’s not an option, we should try to export data to Excel
          • Even if there are a lot of Excel files, we can stitch them together and make an unified dataset
We already use Excel … isn’t that enough?
          • Many companies have the best tools but they don’t use them
          • This is like the situation where many people have gym memberships but don’t get the results until they join a class or start working with a trainer
          • The companies that work with us have tried internally to get the ball rolling but stalled. They concluded that having Metric-X as a coach and partner is better
What does it cost?
          • The cost of the workshop is $2,500
          • This includes the three sessions described above and the data preparation work we have to do
          • Just a few interesting findings from the workshop more than pay for the cost
What is included in the cost?
          • Database Setup
          • Report Development
          • Data Analysis
          • Planning Session
          • Analytics Session
          • Review/Conclusion Session
What is the technology behind the process?
          • RentViewer has been built using the C# language and the SQL Server database
          • We use Tableau or Power BI for the data analysis
Do you have examples of what we will see in the workshop?
            • Below are some examples…
How much of my time will the workshop take?
            • It can take 4 to 10 hours of your time, depending on how much analysis you want to do
            • Above we described the 3 meetings that are part of the workshop
            • After the review/conclusion, you will need to decide on an action plan to apply what you learned from the analytics
