In today’s data-driven world, businesses rely heavily on data visualization and reporting capabilities to gain valuable insights and make informed decisions. Pointerpro, a successful provider of innovative assessment software with automated reports, understands the importance of presenting data in an accurate and visually compelling manner to offer personalized advice reports to their clients.

To elevate their data visualization capabilities and provide their customers with unparalleled features, Pointerpro sought a solution from Datylon, a leading provider of data visualization design tools and services for charts and reports.

Introduction

Pointerpro is a trailblazing all-in-one platform that empowers enterprises to create captivating online assessments and deliver personalized advice reports in PDF format. As a data-driven assessment tool, Pointerpro caters to consultants and diverse organizations from various sectors and industries, enabling them to harness the power of data visualization for their specific needs.

Furthermore, financial institutions can leverage Pointerpro’s capabilities to generate comprehensive financial reports, offering clients a clear and concise overview of their financial health.

What sets Pointerpro apart from traditional survey or assessment tools is the automatic generation of personalized reports, made tangible and immensely valuable by data visualization.

Challenge

Often, one of the main hurdles for SaaS companies like Pointerpro is the scarcity of data visualization developers and the allocation of valuable resources.

Developing their own in-house solution would require significant time, effort, and budget, which might divert attention away from their core business focus. Therefore, the “make or buy” decision leaned heavily toward finding an external partner like Datylon that could offer a ready-made and cost-effective dataviz solution.

Another challenge was catering to the diverse needs of enterprise customers and consultants who seek custom-designed charts for particular purposes or datasets. Data visualization tools often lack the flexibility to meet these unique requirements, making it crucial for Pointerpro to find a solution that could accommodate tailor-made visualizations.

This real-time data sync, facilitated by Datylon’s API integration, ensured that each report reflected the respondent’s unique journey, making the reports more engaging and relatable.

A game-changer for Pointerpro was Datylon’s chart design process, which requires no coding whatsoever. Datylon’s tools empower designers, eliminating the need for complex coding and technical skills to create stunning charts.

This no-coding design capability gave Pointerpro a competitive edge. It allowed them to provide tailored data storytelling solution in no time that is not only insightful but visually captivating.

Furthermore, Datylon’s data visualization experts provided support, training, and guidance to the Pointerpro team and designers.

Conclusion

Pointerpro’s differentiation lay in offering not just one-pagers but comprehensive reports spanning multiple pages. These reports are tailored precisely to the user’s questionnaire responses.
