Every business is unique. We strive to understand your pains, by being attentive to detail—and data.

Across different industries and regions, here's how we've helped clients overcome specific challenges.

Looking for a similar boost? Let's talk.


Client industry: Aviation

The problem: 

  • Needing to clean, prepare, and consolidate data from more than 20 different source files, monthly.

  • Complex manual processing prone to errors.

  • No one true source of cleaned up data as files were stored separately by individual account managers.

  • Took days to create each management report.

Lightdotlab's solution:

Automated Data Preparation, Storage and Visualisation (Excel VBA, Power Query, Power Pivot, Access)

  • Built automated workflow that cleans, consolidates, calculates, and visualises data.

  • Designed user-friendly interface to let user quickly load latest data and refresh charts with just clicks.

  • Conducted in-house training.

Added value: 

  • Increased efficiency on reports creation- from days to just hours instead.

  • Ability to invest more time on high value analysis and recommendation, instead of manual data report preparation.

  • Ease of mind from significantly reduced errors. Less time wastage tracing errors and rectifying them.

  • Team access to one true source of cleaned up data. Eliminated dependency of data preparation and update from individual account managers.

  • No longer necessary to deconflict differing figures that seemingly represent the same metric.

 

Client industry: Financial Technology

The problem:

  • Identify and track critical operating metrics and distill out impact of various operational elements (e.g. change in pricing, introduction of new product, marketing to new customer segments and regions) on these metrics.

  • Use this data as feedback point to various operational teams on what’s working and what’s not.

Lightdotlab's solution:

Dashboard Development (Power BI, Google Sheets)

  • Interviewed team and analysed data so as to crystallise critical operating metrics, their relations to key operational levers, and impact to overall company revenue performance.

  • Set up workflow to capture data inputs in an organised way. Distilled logic and built model to forecast performance.

  • Built dashboard to track and forecast critical metrics.

  • Conducted in-house training.

Added value: 

  • Quick and easy to get data-backed insights on which initiatives or developments were working (or not) in terms of user behaviour and impact to revenue performance -generates a feedback loop for operational teams.

  • Lift overall data literacy of teams.

  • Management team gained access to a quantitative perspective of the business. This allowed prompt progress and assumption tracking.
