Building a reporting portal or web application isn't brain surgery. There are many companies that do it. But lets talk about what makes AFHood Analytics Group different.
Visualization - Anyone can stick data on a page with the corporate logo and associated color scheme. But what about data that allows you to interact. Data that allows you to see what is driving the trend or how two things relate to each other in a way that doesn't involve a pie chart. Putting data on a page creates information, putting information in a form that is actionable and decisive is visualization.
Ease of Use - Ambiguous names, non-sense menu hierarchies, and crazy metrics that no one can define, these are the tools of early report generation. Today is all about simple, clean and actionable reports. Customize the navigation for the user. Anything important to you should be early in the navigation with details available elsewhere. Getting insight into activity should be intuitive and efficient.
Built in insight - Making inferences about the data is not the job of the average employee. People go to school for years to try and understand the nuances of data. Reports should suggest. Reports should provide answers, not questions. Reports should be relevant only to the topic they are generated for.
These are a few of our guiding principles for development of reporting suites. Let us help you get out of the crazy world of nonsense reports.
