When you join the Idea Lab, you get a dedicated team of Data Analysts, Education Experts, and Software Developers working continuously to design and implement data solutions that meet your specific needs. Best of all you have this entire team at your service for less than the cost of a part-time entry level data analyst.
We ask your administrative team to send our team just one data design request so we can kick off our simple process, known as the Idea Lab. The procedure is below:
1 | Discovery
Personalized consulting process to determine your data objectives, challenges, and priorities.
We will consolidate your data even if it is scattered across several different systems.
We know how to compare ‘apples to apples’ even if your data is not collected and stored consistently.
We will manage your end-to-end data needs and create an easy-to-use online portal where you can access all your data in just a few clicks.
2 | Full Access
Get full access to our entire software library. If one of our existing solutions meets your needs, we will immediately roll it out custom for you.
Our platform will help you see what your data is telling you.
IDP displays your data in easy-to-understand dashboards and reports that help you see trends, gaps, and the progress you are making over time.
The data displayed is matched to your role, so that you see only the data that is relevant to you. Parents and Board members might see high level data only while administrators can dive into the details.
3 | Ideation and Prototyping
We will have bi-weekly review sessions to see your ideas in action.
Data is merely interesting until you use it to inform decisions and make an impact. As things change, let us keep all of the information relative.
IDP helps you use your data to take action by sharing our years of experience and the best practices of all our customers.
With our help, your focus can shift from trying to keep up with all your data to using it to implement strategies for improvement.
4 | Deployment
Once your prototype is exactly the way you want it, we will put it into production.
Whatever your needs are, let our design team put your ideas into action.
There is no limit to the number of data design projects you can send into our team.
