All of our services are underpinned by three core principles:
1. Innovation and continuous improvement
We embrace a philosophy of innovation, entrepreneurship and continuous improvement - ‘A Better Way’.
We continually seek better sources of data, analytical approaches and software design, in order to create new sources of competitive advantage for clients. We work closely with our clients and partners to provoke and support positive change in business strategy and process, leading to new and valuable ways of delivering customer attraction, engagement and business performance.
2. Rigorous data analysis, leads to customer insight, informed commercial strategy and business value
The process of harnessing data to drive commercial performance and financial returns “from data to dividend”, requires a balance of three equally critical endeavours:
- Analytical excellence First we gain an accurate understanding of current and potential customer behaviours and their relationship to business outcomes. Data gathering, collation, modelling and surfacing of robust conclusions is the building block for strategic interpretation.
- Strategic insights Once we have rigorously analysed data, we help develop meaningful strategic insights based on our market knowledge and experience. These insights are most useful when understood in a competitive context, providing potent sources of competitive advantage.
- Commercial application We work closely with clients to ensure insights and strategies are practical in a commercial context. There are always competing business strategies to be considered and prioritised, as well as systems, processes or even cultural constraints to account for when implementing new activity.
3. No market, brand or customer is the same and each requires specific consideration
We believe clients cannot gain a strategic advantage if only informed by ‘off the shelf’ solutions, where insights are assumed to be equally relevant across different clients and industries. We understand that every client is different, so each project considers a unique set of circumstances, leading to outcomes which are truly client specific and measurable. We work in collaboration with our clients to every stage.
What makes us unique?
- Actuarial processes Most of our data analytics is undertaken by actuaries or using actuarial modelling techniques. Our actuaries have unrivalled expertise in customer, risk and financial modelling, combining rigorous techniques with wider commercial training.
- Strategic and commercial expertise We offer a combination of actuarial, strategic and marketing expertise, which means that our solutions are technical as well as commercially savvy. Our diverse expertise enables us to deliver a unique approach to problem solving.
- Unbiased advice As an independent business, we ensure our clients receive an unbiased approach with refreshing objectivity and absolute neutrality. Our recommendations are grounded in evidence-based commercial reality, rather than unseen revenues and commissions.
