One Click Analytics

We create elegant solutions to meet your data needs

Intuitive Design

Some designs are just intuitive.  You sit down and use them without thinking.  Everything is just where you expect it to be and they have the functionality to match.  When designing a data solution, our aim is to create this experience for users.  An interface which is so intuitive and engaging, that it is both a joy to use and adds value to core business as usual processes.

Data Visualisation

Data entry and data analysis can be tedious.  So we visualise your data at every opportunity in order for it to be understandable and engaging. From financial analysis, through process management, to plotting your data geographically onto maps.  Our aim is to make your data come alive, informing both your day to day management decisions and longer term strategy.

One Click Analytics

Data analysis can be time consuming. Furthermore, without the proper data structure, even the best software will leave key management questions unanswered.  We provide you with the right data structure so that one click analytics are at your fingertips.  Bespoke indicators, charts and data visualisation tools reflect the KPIs that are important to you and your team.

Client

Tearfund is a UK based international Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) working in over 50 countries to tackle poverty, disasters and social injustice. The IMPACT UK team aim to equip and envision UK churches to bring wholeness and flourishing in their local communities in place of poverty, disadvantage and inequality.

Tearfund’s website:

Our Task

Having received funding from the UK Cabinet Office through the Social Action Fund, the IMPACT UK team ran a community franchising initiative providing seed funding through matched micro-grants to 210 church partners across the UK.  Applications for funding required registration, monitoring and tracking through a selection process.

From initial consultation, we provided a full data solution design and build service from the ground up, mapping key processes, user roles and determining functionality requirements.  The final solution provides visual process tracking for each application, an audit trail, management statistics, mapping functionality and an online form for the submission of monitoring returns.

Challenges

Due to strict deadlines imposed by the funder the solution needed to be up and running quickly.  It took only 3 weeks build time from the initial consultation to completing the data cleansing and import, enabling the team to move rapidly to centralised solution.

Secondly, monitoring returns needed to be collected at regular intervals from 210 church based projects.  Once received, paper forms were taking the team 5 days to process and collate with varying quality in terms of data returned.  The final solution enables the team to send monitoring requests to partners, with responses collected online.  Complex reporting for the funder was simplified and is now able to be undertaken automatically with results in a matter of seconds instead of days.
