  • Discovered and remedied major data quality issues before going live
  • Radically improved the look and usability of the tool

Overview

An external consultant to the team had been brought in to develop an ├╝berdashboard to aggregate data from another project. The learning curve was steep and the consultant wasn't familiar with the base data so his dashboard had some major shortcomings.
