An Experienced and Trusted Team.

 For People, Process, Technology, and Business Intelligence Solution Planning

With business, data, marketing, finance, IT and GDPR skills in one place.

Improving Business, Charity and/or Community Project Operations.

We offer four new Optimiser4 linked services, which can help you in any or all of four key areas:-
  • Re-assessing needs of all Stakeholders and defining Taxonomies to make your Customer and CRM system investments fit better
  • Helping you to stay compliant under GDPR and PECR rules PECR (= The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations)
  • Making any Mergers and Acquisitions work and give faster payback
  • Expanding your Data sources and integration to help improve decision making, using business intelligence dashboards

Our short and concise investigative approaches help Executives review and rank the severity of the problems they face, and we then document and suggest prioritised actions and possible returns. For companies, we will run an initial scoping and de-risking investigation for just £1200 plus VAT, and for Charities and CICs, for just £850 plus VAT. Usually two visits and discussions with senior Executives enable us to spot the needs and priorities and produce an Executive Action Blueprint.

Who can benefit ? Companies, charities, education and sports bodies, specialist marketing agencies and software service or web trading businesses; businesses focussing heavily on B2C sales and marketing, or implementing CRM or ABM frameworks; and for everyone who is concerned about staying compliant within EU  GDPR and PECR regulations.The cloud based tool we use to support our Optimiser 4 service also leaves any organisation with a re-usable and adaptable online mapping and visualisation of their key activities, helping with future data process and systems planning, definition and matching of system requirements, and a greater assurance that GDPR protocols and Privacy by Design are being followed.

Keep your Team Information Process Technology under control with Optimiser4

6th June 2019 Statement from Elizabeth Denham, The UK  Information Commissioner - " For those who do not take this responsibility seriously or those who break the law, we will act swiftly and effectively. Many of the investigations launched with our new powers are now nearing completion and we expect outcomes soon, demonstrating the actions my office is willing and able to take to protect the public."

We help today’s leaders plan, de-risk and take action in four key areas:

  • Making your CRM investments work better
  • Helping you stay compliant under EU GDPR and PECR rules
  • Making any mergers and acquisitions work
  • Expanding and presenting data to help with decision making

How? Through on-site short workshops, meeting with your Executives, we help you:-

  1. Spot opportunities for your PEOPLE to improve teamwork and outcomes, with better sharing of data, for business, charity or communities
  2. Document, map and untangle the evolving cobwebs of PROCESSES especially after mergers, collaborations and acquisitions
  3. Make sure that cloud, on-premise, mobile and telemetry TECHNOLOGIES allow you to filter and maximise the use of collected data
  4. Aggregate and improve the quality and use of all your DATA, staying within latest GDPR, PECR, CYBER and IASME guidelines
  5. Develop and display operational BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE DASHBOARDS, visualising markets, sales, costs and KPIs in easily usable form

If you have any of these needs, we will start to engage with your teams by  running short on-site workshops to

  • complement your own resources and help you fully assess what you still need to do and to face and minimise this ongoing workload; we can help quickly - and at reasonable cost. We map out your processes, classify what your people and departments are doing with your data, and suggest improvements to eliminate risk. (Phase 2 of GDPR is seeing major enforcements and a range of fines imposed, so there is no room for complacency). We can also introduce you to leading Cyber Essentials and IASME specialists
  • help you think outside the box about what data you do need, how you might acquire and use intelligence better - checking at all times that you have a 'Privacy by Design' approach, a Legitimate Interest and can stay within every aspect of the GDPR and PECR rules. Businesses and charities still need to market, but to use data, whether B2C or B2B, legally.

Finally, we have a superb team who can understand your objectives and essential key performance indicators, scan the 'open data' world, help aggregate and integrate this with your internal data, create one-off data models and build SQL databases, so you can run them on UK based cloud services. At all times we help you and your marketing agencies, using our legal and data regulatory  knowledge, follow guidelines to adhere to GDPR and PECR regulations, hence minimising risks of breaking current regulations but maximising potential. Then within this legal framework, we can also design and deliver subscription Business Intelligence interfaces and Dashboards on a pay as you go basis; and usually no capital equipment costs at all.

N.B: Our Philanthropic Contributions - for Citizens, Communities and Charities.

Citizens via community collaborations and good causes need support from land owners, local authorities, charities and business managers. Towns with heritage to protect need help and more footfall too, which can come from both within and outside the UK, if visitors and tourists carry home positive messages. Good planning and use of comprehensive communications platforms are key. But for this, accurate demographic data is essential as is adherence and integration of GDPR and PECR 'privacy by design' data regulations when communicating. Outcomes from our precision assignments are better mapping of plans, sharper definitions of target groups, more supporters ( offering time, money or equipment ), and an increasing appeal to personal and corporate social responsibility. We will help at significant discounts.
