UNLOCK YOUR DATA
We seek out and unlock business insights hidden in ESN datasets, extending what is possible with the tools’ built-in dashboards to go beyond basic social network metrics.
Our approach allows you to zero in on the way users actually work, gather evidence on how your ESN creates value, and uncover how it can accelerate progress towards business goals.
Wherever possible, ESN data can also be combined with other enterprise data types to provide a fuller picture of company performance, beyond social collaboration.
Our approach also provides engaging data visualisations to help communicate value and a re-usable framework for supporting in-house data research and insights.
