Migrated to a new, more scaleable data visualisation tool.

Embedded dashboards with permissioning into their portal.


Octopus Legacy provides after-life services including wills, lasting power of attorney forms, life insurance and probate. One aspect of their business is working with charities to provide campaigns centered around legacies. Charities spend a lot of budget advertiisng for legacy donation, but have little oversight as to when or how much these donations will be. 

They had created a series of dashboards in Looker Studio, but every time there were changes or enhancements to one of the charts, this then had to be replicated across all 2000+ dashboards. Octopus Legacy turned to 173tech to migrate them to a better solution.


After a short review of the existing dashboards, we were able to recommend metabase Pro as a very cost-effective alternative to Looker Studio. Using this meant that we could create one master dashboard and then apply a filter so that each charity only had access to the relevant charts etc. We were also able to fix a number of small issues that had existed in the backend to improve the overall reliability of the charts.


In just four weeks we were able to migrate Octopus Legacy to a new visualisation tool, and as an extra we also enhanced their dashboards with interactive maps. Our solution saved a significant amount of time with the team no longer needing to manually update each and every dashboard when there were enhancements.
