Register here for the afternoon session

In the afternoon session, we take a look at how companies can leverage analytics to great effect and get more insights from their Sales and Marketing data. These functions are critical to every business. We help organisations manage the vast amounts of data which are continually accumulating. We assist them in bringing it together so they have a clear view, can explore through visualisation and get actionable insights. We have a broad range of services and can support our clients from a capacity or a capability perspective. We have consultants who specialise in database design, data transformation, process automation and dashboard development and can find the appropriate combination to meet your needs. We also offer training and support services to ensure widespread adoption. We have seen how sales and marketing teams have leveraged Tableau and analytics to their advantage. From tracking performance or looking at churn analysis, to enhancing customer experience and understanding customer behaviours – we understand what is working for companies and what has delivered value. We have seen lots of examples of how sales and marketing data can be analysed and visualised to increase customer engagement, support brand awareness and ultimately facilitate data-driven decision making. We are looking forward to sharing our insights.

With the help of Tableau, we assist customers to see and understand their data. This powerful software allows you to bring your data together and shine a light on it, enabling explorative analysis and the ability to see patterns and trends. You can blend and join your data from disparate sources, whether it’s an SQL database, an MS Excel sheet with some survey data or even a PDF report that you’ve sourced somewhere on the internet. Insights can be gleaned and you find yourself asking and answering questions. When it comes to sales and marketing data, there are an increasing number of sources. Companies need to understand web traffic, clicks, subscriptions, survey data, sales and expenditure, campaign results – the list goes on. It is important to define metrics that matter, ones which align to the objectives of the organisation. This will inform decisions about which data is relevant. We find that considerable time often needs to be spent at the data layer. Effort needs to be put in to getting that right, prioritising what matters most so that everything else can follow.
