visualSignals carries out consulting projects and training to help businesses build bespoke visual reporting systems and mapping tools. A typical project could be as small as creating a set of industry specific diagramming shapes or as broad as a sales pipeline tool that integrates into backend corporate databases and CRM systems.
The majority of work is focused on using Microsoft’s Visio diagramming tool as a platform for creating visual reporting solutions. There are three key reasons for this choice:
I launched visualSignals in January 2007. Since then I've been lucky enough to work with some great customers, building a wide variety of Visio-based solutions, from evidence gathering through to Business Process Mapping.
I've also been a Microsoft MVP (Visio) since 2008, which, amongst many other benefits, puts me in touch with some very smart people right across the globe.
Prior to starting visualSignals, I held a number of roles in the business intelligence area, including as a Director of Cube Analysis Ltd and looking after competitor intelligence at T-Mobile UK Ltd. Even further a field I received an MBA from the University of Bath in 2000.
