- Geographic heat maps
- Channel performance measures
- Channel activity timelines
- Custom visualizations to solve unique business needs
With Datawatch visual data discovery, QuickPivot users can go hands-on with information collected from their overall marketing efforts – e-mail, SMS, direct mail, Twitter Ad Page, Web form/page etc. Beyond “out-of-the-box” visualizations, the QuickPivot services team will use Datawatch to design and deliver visualizations that drive deeper understanding of critical business issues. They will be able to quickly uncover patterns, spot important trends and outliers, and then drill into that information to understand the details and make adjustments in real-time.
“Effective marketing today requires the ability to listen, connect, learn and adapt at the speed of the customer, and to do that, you need a holistic view of what is working and what isn’t,” said Mike Shanker, chief executive officerof QuickPivot. “Wechose Datawatch’s visual data discovery solution over the competition because of its strong support of real-time data. The advanced capabilities offered by Datawatch will give our users the insight they need while making it simple for us to offer even more visual data discovery capabilities as needs evolve,” added Shanker.
Datawatch is unique in that it enables users see more than aggregated information about the visualized data. With Datawatch, users can visually drill down into the data to understand the details behind the trends, patterns and outliers – including streaming and real-time information.
”The real power of data lies in the ability to quickly and smartly act upon it,” said Michael Morrison, president and chief executive officer at Datawatch. “By delivering Datawatch’s advanced visual data analysis capabilities on a hosted platform, QuickPivot will give users the agility and understanding they need to make the most of their marketing efforts.”
