Dashboards enable individual data exploration, up to date information
Piscataway, NJ ' July 1, 2014 ' InetSoft Technology, an innovator in mashup driven business intelligence solutions, reports that market research firm Intellitrends is using InetSoft's Style Intelligence to create Dashview, a cloud-based customer feedback dashboard and analytics solution.
Intellitrends is a Michigan-based market research firm that has been serving clients of all types and sizes for over 25 years. Using time tested, accurate, primary and secondary market research methods, Intellitrends follows a unique process of understanding a client's position in the marketplace by conducting a thorough review and analysis of the competitive landscape. Utilizing their proprietary Competitive and Positioning Radar (itCAPR) process model, they provide their clients with an accurate view of their relationship and position in regards to the target market space.
Prior to partnering with InetSoft, Intellitrends was presenting its carefully gathered market research in the form of PowerPoint presentations. The time came to a find more valuable and impactful way to deliver their important findings. 'Our clients wanted something interactive, something that they could change on the fly,' explains Keith Stone, COO of Intellitrends. 'Also, some of our international manufacturing clients had data from multiple plants in multiple countries, so they needed something that could combine that data into a single view.'
After carefully evaluating several options, Intellitrends decided to utilize InetSoft's Style Intelligence to create Dashview. Dashview is a cloud-hosted set of interactive dashboards available through the Intellitrends password-protected website. The dashboards are customized to show performance measures for each individual client, and they automatically update as new data comes in. The program also give different levels of access based on login, so different departments and levels of management can have access to different levels of information. Alerts can be set to warn of competitive or operational risk situations.
These analytic dashboards are a huge advantage over the PowerPoints being previously presented to clients. 'One major advantage is clients get more timely information. Because we can feed them data in near real time, they can see the changes in what they're measuring as the data comes in,' Keith Stone explains. 'And another is the level of self-service they get for answering their own questions right away. Our customers can click to explore data since it's all interactive. They can drill down and go multiple levels deep to learn more about a specific business unit or region. And that satisfies their need for answers that they used to rely on us for providing, which also saves us resources in supporting them.'
'Intellitrends provides a great example of how market researchers and consultants can use visual analysis tools to better deliver actionable information to their clients faster,' explains Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft. 'When your clients are given the ability to interact with and visually explore findings on their own, they'll discover meaningful patterns in the data that even you might have overlooked.'
