At Spreadsheet Analytics, we specialise in supporting companies with strategic data capture solutions. We provide businesses with the tools and the expertise to use the data that is available to them. In the twenty-first century, this type of information is freely available to businesses, but not all are effectively utilising them to inform their business decisions. By working with Spreadsheet Analytics, you can be confident that you not only have access to the data that you need, but that you can understand and interpret what it shows to make choices that will benefit your business.
Data capture means the process of gathering information from electronic documents, extracting it and converting it into a format that can be analysed, reviewed and interpreted. This can be done quickly and effectively using automated computer systems. Whereas in the past, collecting this all together would have been a colossal administrative task which required many hours of work and great expense, data capture can be done almost instantly using a correctly designed workflow, such as a spreadsheet which has been created to operate with your records. The amazing thing is that most companies already have the information that they need in a range of folders and files, but with data capture processes the information takes on a format which is informative and easy to use.
Electronic data capture begins by reviewing which sets of information will be valuable to your business. This will depend on the industry, the type of business, and the area to be refined. Typically, this might involve sales data but it could also be used for data analysis of any part of your company to allow effective business process improvement. Once the type of data and the parameters have been identified, data capture forms are created. These are automated forms which collect and sort the existing information into a usable format. These are connected to powerful reporting tools which present the collated information in a meaningful format which is easy to understand and utilise.
Our electronic data capture options allow for a ‘deep dive analysis’, which means that you are able to review what the data is telling you and make informed choices. This ensures that the decisions you take, whether over staffing choices, stock lines, delivery routes or supplier prices, are made based on factual information, not sentiment or personal opinion. Equally, the report might support what you already know based upon your business experience and give you the factual proof to support the changes you want.
Because our data capture and collection systems are automated, this means that it will continually update your reports and information summaries. This ensures that you always have access to the latest and most accurate information – after all, making good business choices means that you need to have the best information available.
