Visual Analytics

Visual Analytics

We create impactful dashboards & visualisations that will help you save time and money, engage your audience and answer your strategic needs.

Using industry leading software such as Tableau and PowerBI, we work with our clients to build impactful data visualisations. From bespoke analytical tools to complex multi-source dashboards, we tailor our designs to the needs of the project, whilst also providing consultancy services to illuminate the art of the possible, ensure best practice and achieve widespread adoption.

We started designing dashboards and data visualisation for clients in 2010, initially using Xcelsius from SAP, before discovering Tableau (v5) and adopting that as our preferred visualisation tool. Being part of what was at that point a small community of UK Tableau users was highly exciting, witnessing the growth of data visualisation both in terms of adoption and also in its sophistication.

During this early period, our work was featured in globally respected publications such as The Guardian, as well as being awarded ‘Viz of the Day’ multiple times on Tableau Public. Fast-forward to 2021 and we now have a team of data visualisation and analytics consultants, and offer a range of services related to Visual Analytics, working with clients at any stage of their adoption roadmap, on any size or type of project, and being involved in any capacity…
