Optionally adding objectivity to your reports and decisions has been fine. But the world is changing. Your competition is changing.
Data is easier and cheaper to generate than ever before. You know the data is hiding more value than you are using but getting to these insights is tough and time consuming.
In fact you are becoming swamped with all this data. It is increasingly getting out of control and perhaps if you’re honest, you’d sometime prefer a world without data at all!
Data management platforms are meant to address the issues but these one-size-fits all systems fail. They are expensive, inflexible and complex – some even hated.
Not getting the most from what you have is only part of the issue – your team now also has legal, financial and operational pressures to sort the data out.
What can you do?
To generate anything “meaningful”, by way of numbers or analysis or reports, takes an age.
Data presentation can be woeful.
Reports hard to follow.
Data integration with others in the team, basically impossible.
You are frustrated.
You’ve engaged all the usual channels for help but it hasn’t really worked out.
You are not prepared to give up and anyway this nagging pain isn’t going away.
The thing is, you are not sure where to go for help.
No-one with the necessary skills seems to really understand how high-performance Sport’s organisations work.
No-one seems willing or able to address your specific needs.
Because you are employed for your expertise, not to copy & paste.
Because numbers, charts and reports should look good too.
Because the data can be 100x more valuable, if it’s available quickly.
How much better would it feel to have your Athlete Reports:
I'm very happy indeed with progress.
Barry Fudge, Head of Sport Science & Endurance
What if reporting out to funding bodies, the board and other senior stakeholders was as easy as sending an email, no matter what they asked?
To have it guaranteed that these ideas, whether for an app or a database or a new piece of bespoke equipment, could be rapidly turned into real, tangible and highly-valuable team assets?
How good would it feel to know that people in the team were no longer wasting hours, days, even weeks of their time copying and pasting data to make amateurish looking reports?
How much better would it be if your team were able to spend their time focused on delivering their real talents?
We have delivered all of these advantages (and more) for our customers, over the last 8 years.

We’ll give you templates to help you start being more organised. Maximum flexibility with minimum disruption to existing work practise.
As custodians of your data we take that responsibility very seriously. Our approaches are constantly under-review to ensure your data is secure. We are currently working towards compliance with the Government’s Cyber Essentials Standard. Furthermore, should you have specific data policies, we’ll be happy to follow these.
