How does it work?
We follow a very simple three-step process:
Connect to your data
Create a visualization
Ongoing support and modifications
We can connect to nearly any data source. Any ERP system, database, or API will most likely be covered. During the initial phases, we're even OK with CSV or Excel Files.
You let us know what you're struggling with and we'll create a visualization to meet that need. Once we have a first draft, we recommend using the dashboard to get a feel of what you're missing. Over the next 2-3 months, we'll refine the dashboard until it's perfect and exactly what you need long-term.
After that, reach out at any time with additional modifications, changes, or a question. If you ask us, "what does this mean?" we will gladly help you with the interpretation! With WIPPData, you'll never feel overwhelmed with your data again.
How much does it cost?
We believe in transparent pricing with no hidden fees! Price can vary based on complexity and the type of service you purchase, but we can typically give you pricing after one meeting. Schedule an appointment and we'll get you pricing asap.
What type of data can you use?
We work best with ERP and process-driven data. Here are some good examples:
Purchase Orders / Procurement
Sales Orders & Payments
How do you handle data security?
We take a number of steps to ensure 100% security for all data warehousing tasks:
All data pipelines (ETL's) are fully encrypted end to end
Dashboard Permissions are customized to protect the client to their level of comfort
Proactively remove or archive data that is not being actively used
Passwords are randomly generated for all credentials
Passwords and Client files are never shared via email, text, slack, or other channel
Clients are welcome to audit our security practices at any time. We're always striving to improve and welcome all suggestions.
What Industries do you serve?
We can work with any industry since data is so universal. But we are Supply Chain Data experts, so we focus on the industries that have complex supply chain requirements. Here are some of the industries our team has worked with:
Consumer Packaged Goods
We work best with companies (or divisions within a company) that have $10m-$500m in revenue.
What software do you use?
Supply Chain Data is software agnostic and so are we. Any requests you have can typically be accommodated.
Here are some of the most popular visualization software options. If you don't have a preference, we will walk you through the options.
Looker Studio (Free Option)
What are my alternatives to WIPP Data?
There are many paths you can take with your Supply Chain Data! Here are a few options:
Do it yourself. Keep it internal. Level up your team's current skills. If you have a spreadsheet wizard in your company, you'll probably be OK for a while. The cost is $0 additional. The downside? There will be a lot of wasted time and the solution won't be as robust as bringing in data experts.
Hire your own data team. Here are the roles we fill and the average base salaries in the US (no benefits).
This is $265k/year base salary for all three roles. You can get many years of WIPP Data service for the same price!
Find another data agency. There are plenty of companies that will build you a dashboard. But very few have expertise in Supply Chain Data. When you think Supply Chain Data, think WIPP Data.
