Data Visualisation and Reporting Solutions
Despite the evidence on the importance of data visualisation tools, data visualisations are often an overlooked part of a successful data strategy. As a data analytics and strategic consultancy company, we think the data speaks for itself on the importance of implementing data visualisation platforms:
65% of the population are visual learners.
90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual.
Visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text in the brain.
Posts with visuals receive 94% more page visits and engagement than those without.
Videos are shared 12x more than links and text posts combined.
High quality infographics are 30 times more likely to be read than text articles. We take our clients huge volumes of data from their data layer, and break them up into bite-size chunks of information and meaningful insights that can be easily understood by anyone in the business, leading to a step change in performance and growth. Our in-house team of designers and UX experts, understand how to create visual pleasing data stories, in simple infographics that can be used throughout organisations to share volumes of information quickly and insight change.
Our Automated PDFs are an automated data visualisation solution that provides the efficacy of dashboards and simplicity of infographics into an automated solution for ease of sharing and distribution. This visualisation tool enables our clients to share insights effectively and at scale, which is incredibly beneficial to clients that would ordinarily be impacted by the challenges of different platforms and/or different technologies used throughout the business. This data visualisation solution can be implemented quickly without the effect on day-to-day business operations, which may occur with other technological implementation strategies.
Alerts provide an alternative to traditional reporting solutions, by pushing key insights out across the business, in the precise moment they need to know. This automated data visualisation strategy makes for a reactive and proactive solution to eradicating the need for reports and freeing up colleagues time, while still ensuring they have all the knowledge and insights they need at their fingertips. This real-time solution uses event based triggered alerts, which are fired as soon as any specific conditions are met and can be paired with regular subscription-based alerts to keep you on the pulse of key activity.
Dashboards provide one version of the truth across standardised measures and targets shared across the business and enables our clients to stay on target with embedded root cause analysis, which is accessible for the whole business and enables you to dive straight into drivers of performance in seconds.

Our Data Visualisation and Reporting Approach
Across all of our data visualisation platforms and reporting tools, our approach is to be user-centric, led by user research and to be empowered by design. This user-centric, design-approach ensures that the visualisations that we deliver both land and are loved by our clients. Design thinking is at the core of how we effectively action data into strategy development, powerful applications and ultimately organizational change.
The design-led methodology is used by designers to solve complex problems, and find solutions for clients. Rather than problem-focused, it is solution-focused and action-oriented towards creating a preferred future, drawing on logic, imagination, intuition, and systemic reasoning, to explore possibilities of what could be and to create desired outcomes that benefit the end user.
When design principles are applied to strategy and innovation the success rate for innovation dramatically improves, which is evidenced by well known design-led companies like Apple, Coca-Cola, IBM, Nike, Procter & Gamble and Whirlpool, who have outperformed industry-benchmark growth by as much as two to one.
As design has evolved beyond making objects into creating experiences, so has data analytics. Data analytics to have scale impact must go beyond simply generating analytics into empowering change in an organisation. Data is a critical component to the process of design as well as getting organisations to change or do something different as a result of what they see. As we develop our data visualisation and reporting solutions, we think like designers applying design principles to how we deploy our analytic applications and dashboards.
Once we have a better understanding of your business challenges, goals and priorities, we can identify and implement data visualisation solutions and reporting tools to help our clients to tackle a range of business problems:
