Client challenge: Excel hell and lack of visibility
The business was receiving a large amount of external data on a monthly basis, delivered in various formats. The lack of consistency and ability to quickly isolate meaningful and pertinent data was creating confusion and hindering the decision making process. The client was spending approximately 85 man-hours per month manually cleaning and preparing data for reporting and forecasting. Their data analysis led to poor insights and decisions being made on gut feeling rather than facts and figures.

The tool has had a significant impact on the client's ability to drive cost savings and increase their revenue.
