Analytics focused Datawarehouse/Data Mart setup.

 

Objective: E&I, the only member owned, non-profit sourcing cooperative serving the education community, sought to enhance its Member interactions and drive greater value from each Member relationship. They needed a robust data solution that would enable them to efficiently analyze Member data, gain valuable insights, and deliver personalized services.

2.    Limited Analytical Capabilities: The existing data warehouse had not been maintained or updated to support advanced analytics capabilities, hindering E&I's ability to uncover meaningful patterns and trends within Member data.
3.    Inefficient Member Interactions: E&I struggled to provide personalized and timely responses to Member queries and requirements, impacting overall customer experiences.
4.    Incomplete Customer Insights: The absence of an analytics-focused centralized data repository hindered E&I's ability to develop a holistic understanding of each Member's preferences, buying patterns, and pain points.
