Data Stack: Excel + BigQuery + Metabase
Creating an MVP
One of the key services that The Equal Group offers to their corporate clients are EDI audits which help organisations identify areas to make incremental improvements in terms of equality, diversity and inclusion. To conduct this analysis and present their final reports to clients, they were using limiting tools such as Excel and PowerPoint. They contacted CIS with three key requirements: 1) Help identify and evaluate tools that would allow users to drill down into the data. 2) Select and implement a low-cost tool that could produce user-friendly dashboards and that had a professional aesthetic. 3) Have access to an external team that could quickly design and generate their dashboards after they had collected the client's audit data.
Life with Metabase and a Helping hand from CISIn a matter of days the company had several interactive dashboards embedded on a secure website that could be filtered by client, and that allowed viewers to drill down into the audit data without exposing the identity of the employees. TEG had a scalable and professional prototype that would allow them to expand their service offering. And perhaps most importantly for a company of their size, by outsourcing this task, they had more time to focus on other business critical activities.
