Having a lot of data doesn't do anything for you unless you know what to do with it and you know it's reliable.

What Can Custom Data Services Do For Me?

Custom data services can help you make better business decisions through reliable data. Blou Designs specializes in doing this through data cleansing, data reconciliation, data conversions, and data audits.
  • Justify your business decisions with your data
  • Have your data ready-to-go when you're ready to use it
  • Sort and group data the way you need it
  • Easily "drill down" from an overview down to the base data from which that overview was created so you can uncover trends
  • Know that you're making decisions based on "good" and "clean" data

How we work...

1
We Connect

Barbara will meet with you -- by phone, email, or face-to-face -- to discuss your training needs.

If we decide we're a good fit, we'll start on your project.
2
We Plan

This is where we nail down what you want to do with your data, and where your current methods are falling short.

Blou Designs will get to know you and your data.

Based on our discussions and analyses, Blou Designs will devise a technical plan (including cost estimates) to develop your solution. This solution might range from something that deals just with your data (e.g., a one-time data cleansing and/or data port (import or export) to another system) to a solution that also integrates custom software so you can replicate this solution on your own in the future.
3
We Delve

This is where we delve in and make sure your data is in a format that meets your needs.

What this looks like will depend entirely on the nature of your solution.
4
We Deliver

On time and within budget, your final product is delivered to you.

There won't be any surprises, because you were a part of the planning and data mapping in Phase 2.


Frequently Asked Questions

Are you taking new projects right now?

Yes! Let's Connect.

How private is the data I share with Blou Designs?

Unless you've given your written permission to share your data with another party, we keep 100% of your data to ourselves.

Just like any other system on the planet, ours can be hacked, but we'll make every effort to make sure that doesn't happen with your data.

How long does it take?

This really depends on the complexity of the project.

If you're interested in data cleansing services for an existing data set, or you need data reconciled/correlated between data sources, it usually takes at least two (2) weeks to get familiar with your data.

If you're interested in collecting a new source of data, we'll need to explore what data collection methods you already have in place and what alternatives might be available to collect and store the new data.

If you want to establish new baseline metrics, again, this will involve delving deep into your existing data stores and determining if the data collected already fits the new metric you have in mind.

I can't tell if I need a custom software solution or a custom data solution or a little of both.

It's often the case that our custom software services and custom data services are integrated to fit your needs.

Review our Case Studies to see what we mean.

How much does it cost?

Because all of our solutions are customized to your needs, this really depends on the project.

Connect with us to discuss your needs.

How do you bill?

Unless we've come to some other arrangement, we bill monthly. Work will be invoiced in 15-minute increments at the hourly rate for the service provided.

What if I don't know if I'm ready for a custom solution?

Let's connect and talk about your situation.

We'd love to hear from you.
