Essential need for data consolidation, analysis, and visualization


Challenge

Consumer products portco in critical need of data consolidation and analysis

A portfolio company came to us with a critical need for a business intelligence and analytics provider to consolidate data for their consumer products business. With sales data coming in from their distributors in different manners, they had a critical need to gather and interpret the information they received into usable insights on consumer behavior, sales conversions, and product success. The portfolio company required a business analytics expert to outsource this task to that could quickly consolidate, analyze, and help them visualize their data into information they could action.

BluWave found two exact-fit business analytics providers

Leveraging our founder’s 20 years in private equity, we have extensive frameworks for assessing PE-grade business intelligence and analytic needs for proactive companies. BluWave utilizes technology, data, and human ingenuity to pre-map, assess, monitor, and maintain deep pools of business analytics providers that uniquely meet the private equity standard. We interviewed the portfolio company to understand their specific key criteria, and then connected the client with two select pre-vetted business intelligence providers from our invitation-only Intelligent Network that fit their exacting needs.
