Making complex data, simple to use.
I work with companies that want to make smarter business decisions.
In today's world, business programs create lots of data that are supposed support you in making better business decisions.
Problem is not all the information generated fits together well. This can be confusing and frustrating. Many business owners and their team members end up wasting weekends and evening trying to use difficult to understand dashboards and reports to make major business decisions. Data that should be helpful and valuable, becomes complex and useless.
I don’t suppose you’d relate to that, would you?
