Our Process

Discovery Phase

This phase helps us understand your project goals, the types of data you’d like to use, where the data comes from, and your ideas on how you'd like to analyze and display the data.

Proposal & Timeline Development

Based on the outcomes from the discovery phase, our team will develop a proposal with costing, technical specs & a sample workback schedule for your review, feedback and approval.

Data Review

Reviewing the data for quality and effectiveness helps us understand your data’s strengths, weaknesses, and how much data modelling will be required to produce the desired results.

Project Framework

Approval to the overall style and set up is required prior to moving forward on full scale development. We provide a sample of the final product by showcasing a selection of key areas for your review & feedback.

Development Phase

Key steps include: connecting your data to the selected platform, building features for data visualizations, and setting up automations (if required) for real-time data tracking, reporting and updates.

Training & Support

We provide ongoing training & support to ensure your team has the ability to manage data projects moving forward. This includes: virtual training sessions, ongoing email support and online user guides (where applicable).
