Complete & Edit CRM Import File
Helped a Political Consulting Firm to complete the transfer of data from one CRM system to another. The client needed help merging files as well as cleaning up some of the data. Some data was in all capital letters, some data was stored in one column and needed to be separated into three as well as other data conversions for date formats. We were able to perform the transformation task in a fraction of the time expected allowing our client to be up and running on their new CRM system ahead of schedule.

Monthly & Weekly Stats
Developed a custom system allowing for a Dental company to view client metrics across their many branches on a weekly, mid month and end of month basis. We created an import function along with a custom graph feature to allow the client ease of data collection and aggregation as well as the ability to view data metrics. This system saves the client many hours and vastly reduces the risk of human error.
Casualty Spreadsheet Automation
Took an Insurance and Risk Management Brokerage’s existing spreadsheet and enhanced it by generating graphs, reports and creating the ability to easily extend the data set.

The company had an existing series of linked workbooks for Invoicing and an Invoicing Summary. It was very large, slow and unstable. We replaced the same functionality with one workbook that was faster, smaller and stable. Because of the new structure the client was able to enhance their reporting and pass the task of managing the workbook to another Employee.

When we deliver the solution, we can provide instructions for pasting in your actual data or we can do this virtually for you over a GoToMeeting or we can come to your office and take care of this.
