How it Works

Discovery Meeting

We conduct a no-cost discovery meeting to better understand your business intelligence needs.
Learn More
First, we conduct a no-cost discovery meeting with you to gain a deeper understanding of your business strategy, challenges, opportunities, and the high-level requirements for your business intelligence initiative. This enables us to better understand how to design the best solution to address your needs. It also allows us to gather the information necessary to develop a proposal for the first phase of our process: the design of your new business intelligence software solution.

Design Studio

We provide a rapid, effective approach to determine your overall dashboard strategy.
Learn More
Our Design Studio provides a rapid, effective approach to define your overall dashboard strategy. The goal is to understand at a high level the types of measures and dashboards to create, frequencies of update, types of users and interactions, and the sources and types of data that you will need to input. We’ll also help design your measurement framework, i.e. the list of target metrics and their definitions.


Select the business intelligence software and the analytical tools.
Learn More
The goal of the development stage is to select the business intelligence software and the analytical tool(s) used for the dashboards. We can also recommend any other technology elements needed for the architecture, including the database system, extract transform and load (ETL) tool, and the fixed report generation tool (used to complement the analysis tool if needed.)


Implement our software and create dashboards.

We then implement the BI software and create the dashboards and a data warehouse and ETL tool if needed. Training is also included.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you train me on how to set up dashboards and use the system?
Yes. We help you define your specific Measurement Framework and train you on how to build new dashboards and drill down on data to create actionable insights.
Can you help me aggregate and cleanse my data?
Yes. It’s common for data to come from multiple different sources and lack standardized naming conventions. This is one of the leading causes of inaccurate data and reporting. We can help you improve your data aggregation and cleansing processes as either a standalone project or part of a broader BI initiative.
Can you help me determine if I need new BI software?
Yes. As standard practice we’ll help you to decide if it makes more sense for you to make improvements to your existing BI capabilities or select and implement a new BI software.

“Fluent delivered well above expectations in both timeline and recommendations. With our limited staff and knowledge base of what exists, engaging Fluent has saved us considerable time, money, and frustration over the option of us doing this ourselves. ”
