FAQ

Is Agilytics a platform or a service?

Agilytics is both.

As a platform for analytical work, data savvy (not data science, statistics, or coding) is all that's needed. Deployment & maintenance phases are similar; a little IT savvy goes a long way. Depending on which components of the platform are used, access to resources such as servers, or basic SQL skills, may be needed. Overall though, the platform is automated, optimized & streamlined, which significantly reduces time & technical burdens from start to finish.

As a service, Agilytics comes in two forms: Delivered (to you) & Hosted (on our cloud). With Delivered Services, we do the work & you get a gift, so to speak, that simply drops-in place. Hosted Services are quite flexible, from automated high volume consumption 24/7 via API to manually uploading the occasional file.

Do I need to purchase the entire platform?

No, the Agilytics Platform is modular by design & individual products can be purchased.

My data is all over the place. Do I need a special database or storage, like a data warehouse?

In a word, no. For predictive & descriptive projects with Agilytics ML, spreadsheets work great, as do common data sources. Likewise, there are no special requirements for other products in the platform. Frankly, we have yet to find a data source that we can't work with one way or another.

How much data is needed? I'm concerned about having too little / too much.

With Agilytics there's no such thing as too little or too much data, especially for predictive & descriptive analytics. Ditto for data quality. Agilytics is specifically engineered to produce optimal results on poor, sparse data, which is not typical of machine learning. And Agilytics absolutely excels on rich, complex data. Identifying nuance is a key advantage of Agilytics, automatically of course.

Generally speaking, the Agilytics Platform is flexible & accommodating.

Do certain types of data work better than others?‍

For predictive & descriptive projects, the stronger the link between data & desired outcome, the better. For example, to predict who will buy a cup of coffee, prior purchase details, such as coffee size & purchase location, are useful. Special offers or demographics may help too. The great thing about Agilytics, is it sifts thru all the data for you, automatically, no matter how messy. In fact we encourage the kitchen-sink approach--it can produce stronger results & expose outdated notions & bias.

Generally speaking, the Agilytics Platform is flexible & accommodating.

Can Agilytics be embedded? And if so, is it easy?

Yes, output from Agilytics can be embedded anywhere, including Hosted Services on our cloud. With a couple clicks, everything that's needed (and we mean everything) is generated and published. No coding. No IT. No delay. Plus there's the added benefit of a clear, and admittedly short, chain of custody.

Is there a limit to the number users that COA can support for CRM across my enterprise?

There is no functional limit to the number of users who can be associated with or simultaneously use COA. Depending on the number of users, volume of opportunities that are mined, etc., server requirements can vary. Naturally, we're happy to discuss & make recommendations.

Can I get a 360 degree view of my customers?

Yes! COA & Voltage seamlessly provide a complete 360 view of customers from a single platform. What customer-facing staff see on-screen is easily customized to specific department needs. Likewise, the platform conveniently tracks all activity to true completion, handles special reporting, including corporate-level reports & more.

Can Voltage & COA work with 3rd party data? I am especially interested in individuals in the market for car loans & mortgages.

Definitely! Adding outside data sources to Voltage & COA is a great way to push value-add information across the institution in a timely, accountable manner. Additionally, 3rd party data can enhance any number or type of processes or data flows, keeping everyone in synch. So go ahead & generate high quality sales & marketing leads, enhance reports, watch trends & more.

How much does Agilytics cost?

Prices vary based on what's needed. On-premise subscriptions are per license (we don't care about named users or number of users). Hosted Services are generally subscriptions with a usage component. Delivered services are typically a flat fee.

No matter the path, Agilytics is significantly less than what you might expect. That's because our analytical and deployment engines are fully automated and optimized, completely changing the economics of advanced analytics. Only Agilytics puts predictive, descriptive and prescriptive power within easy reach of anyone who wants it. If you're ready to explore pricing, let us know.
