Be empowered to work with your own data

at Link-it

Be empowered to work with their own data from multiple data sources, to create crucial insights for business management; that is what Link-it was looking for. Link-it specializes in IT services tailored specifically for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). In addition to supporting their customers with utilizing data, they strongly believe in “practice what you preach” and internally work data-driven as well. Through the Data Platform, Link-it is able to create and visualize reliable, complex insights in a fast and efficient way. 

The challenge: Link-it wants to quickly and easily combine data from various sources to use for crucial insights 

Link-it collects data through various systems. As they have a data-driven way of working, they use this data to generate insights. Their challenge is that generating insights with combined data from the different systems was very complex, time-consuming, and sometimes impossible, while this is precisely where the crucial business value lies. For this reason, they enlisted the help of Mountain Platform.
