Getting data to your frontline is not about turning all your employees into analysts. It’s about empowering your employees who are closest to your end customer or the final operations of your business with the insights they need to take action in the moment. Too often, these employees are either given outdated reports, or left without any data-driven insights altogether.
We can help enable frontline teams across industries with real-time data tools that give them the information and insights they need to make decisions in the moment.
This is the portion of your workforce that is in immediate contact with your end customers or final operations. They include employees like store associates, general managers, field employees, truck drivers, warehouse teams, maintenance workers, production line, stockroom, customer service, and more.
Getting insights to the frontline starts with a deep understanding of your employees’ tasks, goals, and environment. Through interviews, observations, and stakeholder sessions, we’ll team up to understand exactly what insights your employees need, and when they need them in order to take action.
Once you know what insights will drive frontline action, you’ll need to pull together the data that feeds those insights. We'll immerse ourselves in your data and systems, documenting where data exists, what form it lives in, and how it should be connected.
Once we have a grasp on the use cases and the necessary data, we’ll come alongside your team to build a tool that effectively presents insights to your frontline — right when they need it. The right format is essential in encouraging more data-driven decisions, so we don’t just consider dashboards. Technology like natural language processing, chat bots, voice assistants, or even SMS updates could fit more naturally into your employee’s workflow.
