Cumulatively, these factors are forcing companies to rethink the way they engage, motivate, and retain employees.

    Earlier this week I hosted a webinar with our new VP of Sales, Brian Friedle, on using analytics to do a better job of planning and budgeting.

  • Deliver Analytics with Purpose, Not Mounds of Data

    Submitted on: Thu, 06.22.2017 01:42am - admin

    I am married to an amazing ER nurse. In her world, a patient’s symptoms indicate which tests to run for a diagnosis. The nurses and doctors don’t approach the patient like this is the first time they’ve seen a fever and rash from a bug bite, they simply follow a protocol. The book has already been written. The algorithm has been designed. Decades of research into data and billions of dollars have been invested to say, “if this, then that”.
     
    Why can we not apply the same logic to our distribution customers and their “symptoms?” They buy too much of this and not enough of that. They place too many orders. They have too many returns. They have us quote 1000 jobs to every 1 that is accepted.
