Beyond Benchmarking.

Technology is moving so fast. Data volumes are only growing. Sometimes businesses just need to take a moment, untangle where they are today, and create a clear plan for tomorrow.

Our senior team have undergone many strategic reviews and whilst no two businesses are the same, here are the core areas that we tend to focus on:

How It Works.

In just four weeks we aim to establish the direction of the business today, the pain points in utilising data and your current setup & tools. We then consider where you want to be, which areas will bring in the most value and the technology you will need.

Benchmark Today

Benchmark your data tools, teams and usage today.

Assess Capabilities

Tool Stack Design

Data Roadmap

Our Collaborative Approach.

The 173tech team were all client-side at one time and we know that an external agency coming in can ruffle some feathers. But not to fear! We always advise that no agency can ever replace an in-house team and will work closely to quickly assess which areas need priority, where the most value lies from analytics, and which tools are best suited to bring that vision to life.

Data Tools We Integrate.

We closely align your business strategy to the tools that can bring it to life, creating scaleable data infrastructure that will serve up key insights. You 100% own all the technology, models and structure that we set up meaning no reliance on us long-term. Here is a good example of common tools we work with:

Frequently Asked Questions.

What Is The First Step?

Want to find out what the possibilities are for turning your data into business drivers? Not sure if your ideas for using data are technically feasible and will generate ROI? Have a specific use case in mind for your data but do not know how to get started? Hop on an informal call and we can help! Our experienced team can offer impartial advice and suggestions and we are always happy to help.

Which Data Tools Do You Recommend?

No two clients are the same. The tools and configuration we recommend will depend upon your business needs and current set up. As a company rule, we do not accept any sort of commission or referral fee from any tool provider, and so you can guarantee that our advice is impartial and always tailored to your needs.

Who Needs To Be Involved?

We join forces with your team. By helping us to understand your business, goals, existing data processes and challenges,  we can better return value from data more quickly.

Having a project manager  and a technical point of contact would facilitate an efficient requirements gathering process and ongoing collaboration.

What Is Our Time Commitment?

Most of your involvement comes in the early stages of the project as we try to understand your business and current data setup. From there we have a weekly 45 minute sync and may also have ad-hoc questions through slack.

What Happens Post-Review?

The decision is yours. You can decide to implement the next steps in the roadmap yourself, with our help or a mixture of the two.
