Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence

We hired RocketWeave to redesign our Data Warehouse and help us implement a new BI platform. Our team consisted of two individuals from Finance with limited experience in creating and maintaining a fully functioning BI system. RocketWeave was able to quickly understand our business at a fundamental level and leverage that understanding into creating a complete solution. They met with the end users of the system to make sure we were building a platform that would accommodate both the C-Level’s overview requirements and the Analyst’s detailed requirements. RocketWeave started with the end in mind and broke down each requirement to its core which allowed us to work together in creating the Data Warehouse and BI platform that would work best for our needs.

Point-of-Sale (POS) and ERP Integration

As our company was changing POS systems, we faced a seemingly insurmountable challenge to upload essentially offline sales data into our totally disparate corporate ERP. Forced to reverse engineer not one but two relatively closed systems with limited reporting capabilities, Pat and Albert (RocketWeave) designed and developed an intensely detailed end-to-end data interface that accounted for every one of our key financial indicators—and more. They asked and found answers to all the right questions while delving into issues both known and unforeseen. In the end, they were remarkably efficient in producing this ‘virtual miracle’ that we continue to rely on religiously to this day.
