Analytics as a Service
Runway Analytics (RA) is a Fractional Analytics company. Our Service options allow organizations to capitalize on their data and improve efficiencies for their unique needs.
Planning and Assessments
When it comes to data, one size does not fit all. Which problems are worth solving? How difficult will it be to get answers? What information do you have, and how can it be connected? What tools are the most reliable and cost-effective to get there? We work with our clients to make the path forward clear so that they can start making informed choices from day one.
Sometimes you just need an answer to make a hard decision, and we can get there without implementing a full solution. Maybe you need to know whether your support staff really needs an additional team member to handle their call volume, or how long you expect a potential new location to operate before it becomes profitable. We can use historic data and system extracts to model those scenarios and illuminate the best path forward.
Would you feel comfortable driving a car with no gas gauge, check engine light, or speedometer? Just like driving a car or flying a plane, business owners need a dashboard that they check periodically to make sure that their business is on track. These KPIs tell you when you can speed up, when you need to make some changes (get gas), and when you need to consult an expert. We help you identify and refine the KPIs most essential for your business and make them available going forward.
What if you could only see the gas gauge from the driver’s seat, the check engine light from the back seat, and the speedometer from the trunk? On paper you have everything you need, but accessing it is such a pain that, more often than not, you just go without. We see this all too often in business as decision makers scramble from one system to another to get what they need to make a decision. We put all the KPIs front and center for our clients so that they are easy to access and understand.
Sometimes it is not enough to put your KPIs next to each other. More advanced KPIs might report on information from multiple systems, like how an estimate of your vehicle’s remaining range uses information about your fuel level and your speed to deliver a single, more useful KPI. We bring that information together in one place to support cross-functional reporting, giving you more insight for less work.
A car is designed, delivered, and supported by one company. But what if your speedometer was designed by a vendor that stores your speed in furlongs per meter, and your gas gauge was designed by a vendor that stores the level of your gas tank in inches deep recorded once per minute? The car company made it look like you expect from the surface, but getting these systems to talk to each other might be more challenging than it appears. We clean, convert, and structure data in a way that makes it clean and intuitive for report development.
Data Security and Access
Access is important. Without it, new information has no way of translating into changes that improve outcomes. In the wrong hands, it can distract and create problems. We work with your team to keep your information secure in the hands of the people who need to know.
Leaders who design a system usually find it intuitive, but their teams and employees may struggle to translate new lines and charts into insight and action. The value of data is realized once the people within a business start to do things differently. With content reviews and coaching, we make sure that key players know what to do with their new insights and capabilities.
Maintenance and Partnership
Once you drive a car off the lot, who keeps it running? Some people are hobby mechanics and want to learn themselves. Some people have a friend who helps them out. Some people hire a mechanic when they need it. Some people pay for the extended warranty and peace of mind. We offer a variety of support and partnership options to provide as much support as our clients want, for as long as they want it.
