Raise.com shows 804% Return on Investment with GoodData’s Insights as a Service Platform
SAN FRANCISCO — June 11, 2015 — Raise.com is a 2015 recipient of a Technology ROI Award from Nucleus Research for its implementation of GoodData®, a leading provider of Insights as a Service. The awards recognize the top 10 technology deployments each year based on their bottom-line financial return on investment (ROI).
“The Tech ROI Awards honor the 10 best IT implementations in the industry based on the best metric available to prove value -- ROI. This is a joint effort, showcasing both savvy implementations by the winning companies and also the value of the vendor solutions they deployed,” said Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research.
The Technology ROI awards demonstrate strong best practices for optimizing business results while maximizing value. For Raise.com this meant a solution that could meet and scale with the company’s demands and deliver detailed insight into sales performance and operational analytics – helping fuel the young company’s growth while ensuring customer retention. The implementation of GoodData resulted in 804% ROI and full project payback within 1.3 months, as determined by Nucleus Research.
“Analytic applications have become a popular area for investment, which is not surprising given that, on average, analytics deployments return $13.01 for every dollar spent. Raise.com’s implementation is a compelling example of how to optimize results with GoodData,” said Anne Moxie, analyst of Nucleus Research.
“When Raise.com partnered with GoodData, the results were nearly instantaneous,” said Yale Sun, Data Team Lead, Raise.com. “With GoodData, our sales team generates the insights they need to market, sell and grow our business in a fraction of the time and our Executive Team is now armed with the information they need to create projections, and conduct long-term planning exercises.”
“The success of our customers is our number one priority,” said Roman Stanek, Founder and CEO of GoodData. “ROI is one of the most essential ways companies calculate their success, so we are extremely proud to join Raise.com in accepting this award as a result of their 804% return.”
This industry recognition comes just before GoodData and Raise.com lead the conversation how customer insights can transform your marketing and ecommerce operations at Big Data & Analytics for Retail Summit in Chicago, IL on June 17-18, 2015.
