What we do
visualSignals carries out consulting projects to help businesses build bespoke visual reporting systems. 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.
A Development Platform
The majority of our 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:
- Rapid development – Visio's sophisticated drawing engine means that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Projects can typically be delivered in a shorter timescale, thereby reducing costs.
- Adaptable solution – Visio’s core capabilities offer highly flexible solutions, which can easily be adapted as the business environment changes.
- Simple to use – Being part of the Microsoft Office family, Visio provides the same familiar user interface as applications such as Word and Excel, which means end-users require minimal training.
Visio and Business Intelligence
With a background in competitor intelligence and market analysis, we are fully aware of the importance of clear business information that enables people to make informed decisions. Our expertise in Visio development, coupled with our experience in business information needs, makes us well placed to deliver the benefits that visual reporting provides.
