Start here

If you think you could make better use of your data and would like to discuss the possibility of working with Cleverdata to find a solution, here’s where to start …

What data is important to your business and how do you handle that data now?

Consider your current data handling procedures and make a list of the information which your data should provide which is currently limited, eg.

  • Detailed invoice documents to send to clients
  • Customers who have bought from a particular product range in the past
  • The sales patterns of seasonal products
  • Tenancies which are due to reach their end date in the coming 6 months
  • All recipients of bursaries from a particular donor
  • etc

Gather sample documents representing how you currently manage your data and add notes as to how you think this process could be improved.  Perhaps your data handling is limited by the physical space on a page or record card, or your spreadsheet of records has so many lines it is becoming unmanageable, or perhaps your data is held in a database which needs additional user-defined analysing tools?

Contact Cleverdata to explain what you think your business needs.  We will arrange to look at the material you have gathered and speak to you over the phone or visit to learn about your business and the information which you want to extract from your data.

When we understand your requirements we will create a specification document and a quotation detailing our proposals for a Cleverdata solution to your data management needs.  This first document is unlikely to provide the final template for your solution as through the development process we may make suggestions for further procedures and you may realise that there are other things which can be achieved which you would like to implement.  However, before beginning any work on behalf of our clients we will detail, quote and agree what Cleverdata is going to do for you.

If you already hold useful data in a format which can be extracted into a new Cleverdata application, eg. in a spreadsheet or database, then we will also quote for transferring this data and pre-populating your Cleverdata system.

Please talk to us and we can go through this planning process together

it may not be as daunting as it first seems!
