Keynetix Data Review Meetings are a hit!
At the start of the year we set ourselves the goal of conducting at least two free data review meetings every week for our clients.It has been great to see that we have had no trouble in filling the available slots and customers have been keen to take us up on the offer.The first such meeting was carried out in Northern Ireland with Glover Site Investigations Ltd for whom Managing Director, Dr Paul Dunlop commented:

“We have started to implement the recommendations made during our recent data review and have already started to see advantages for our customers and business efficiency.”

This really is the aim of the Data Review Meeting; to assess current practices and provide suggestions for improving areas where  errors may arise, where too much time is spent and areas that are simply more expensive than they need to be.

Celtic Technologies have also benefited from their Data Review Meeting, commenting:

“We found the data workflow review really useful as we use Keynetix’s software, but aren’t always sure that we use it as effectively as we might. The meeting with Keynetix taught us several new tricks and has helped us to streamline our data production and analysis, which is good news for us and good news for our clients” 

Ian Wright, Celtic Technologies Ltd

It has been gratifying to see the meeting’s benefits for our customers recognised so quickly.

If you would like us to call in and conduct a review of your data workflow please let us know by registering your interest via the link below.
