We started with a simple idea: Type questions and sift through charts.
What we found was clients needed just as much help getting their data cleaned, prepped, and organized. Reporting was just one step in the Decision Feedback Loop.
We helped with Business Intelligence roadmaps and writing scripts to clean and model their data. But there was a problem: What our customers needed was a dedicated, in-house team to build and manage their decision infrastructure.
They were at an impasse. Should they invest in all the time, talent and technology needed to build a complete Decision Feedback Loop? Could they justify a $0.5M to $1M per year budget to do this? The answer was often No.
But we were a group of Data Analysts, Business Intelligence Managers, Engineers and Finance experts. We knew how to quickly stand-up corporate decision infrastructure. We knew a lot of it could be automated and that our customers could outsource the rest.
With this in mind we pivoted to build one system that let our customers clean, package and even resell their own data. A system that allowed them to build robust Decision Feedback Loops. And a system that gave them more flexibility around staffing and resourcing. This is truly when TypeSift was born.
