Ready to make friends with your data?

Here's how we can help.

OUR SERVICES

1. Collect and leverage the right data

When your data is incomplete, inaccurate, or organized in a way that makes it difficult to retrieve and compare, it’s frustrating. It can also mean missed opportunities or misleading results. We’ll change that by cleaning and organizing your data to improve its quality and comparability. We’ll also suggest ways to collect richer data and store it for easier retrieval and analysis. Working together, we’ll lay a solid foundation that unlocks new value and business insights from your data.

Data Cleansing

It’s common for businesses to have errors or inconsistencies in their data, especially when working across several legacy systems. We’ll help resolve these issues by discovering and correcting inaccurate or incomplete data – making your data more reliable. This service is also known as data cleaning or wrangling.

Data Architecture

Data architecture provides the foundation for your data environment and impacts your reporting and business intelligence capabilities. We'll review and assess your current approach and make recommendations to improve query times, as well as help you leverage more value from your data.

2. Uncover new insights with better analytics

You’ve got the data, now let’s analyze it. We’ll help you understand your data in new ways using data science and applied methodologies, resulting in dynamic reports and dashboards tailored to each user. Gain new insights into both your structured and unstructured data and uncover how your data relates to your business performance. By gaining enhanced visibility on new aspects of your business, you’ll be better positioned to optimize your processes, reduce your risks, and become more profitable.

Automated Report Creation

Are you stuck in the cycle of creating reports manually, each tailored to different stakeholders? We’ll help you mature your reporting process by developing automated reports that generate customized insights, delivered in formats each stakeholder wants. As conditions or regulatory requirements change, your reports can respond with flexibility – saving you time and money.

Dynamic Dashboard Development

We'll create a dynamic dashboard for your business that pulls together the right information, displays it in an easily consumable fashion, offer real-time insights on KPIs, and allows you to make business decisions with confidence. Have multiple decision-makers or business lines? Each dashboard can be constructed to deliver specific insights to specific people.

3. Optimize your business performance with confidence

With rich data sets and powerful reports in place, it’s now time to optimize your business performance. We’ll develop robust models that will help you solve big problems, like how to acquire more customers, price better, reduce risks, or optimize operations. We’ll also provide business strategy that combines your deep industry knowledge with our expertise of process optimization. Feel confident knowing you can achieve business goals faster and with fewer unknowns, and move from being a data-generating organization to a truly data-driven one.

Model Optimization

We're experienced in developing complex models to assess business performance (i.e. what-if analysis) and optimize business performance. We’ll begin by discussing the problems you want to solve, assess the data you have, and bring it all together using advanced modelling and mathematical programming techniques to find the optimal outcome. That means you’ll never have to rely on your gut feeling again when making critical business decisions.

Business Performance Strategy

Do you suspect there are better ways of running certain aspects of your business – but don’t have the data or objective evidence to back it up? Let’s develop a robust, data-informed strategy to take you to the next level with greater assurance and predictability. We strongly believe that with your subject matter expertise and our understanding of performance optimization, we can work together to achieve remarkable results.

4. Specialized Services

We also provide highly specialized advisory services for businesses or people looking to buy or sell a business and for banks and credit unions looking to optimize their treasury strategy and regulatory requirements.

The bank was so impressed, they waived the requirement for Quality of Earnings, saving us tens of thousands of dollars. Malency’s financial background, attention to detail, and his ability to analyze and find opportunities within data has saved us $500,000 within our first 4 months of operating the business.
