About Alpha Data Solutions
Alpha Data Solutions help you realise the true value of your data. Why struggle to keep on top of growing, inconsistent data, when we can help you create effective data aggregation programmes to manage the challenge? You’ll free staff from laborious tasks, stay competitive in a world of shrinking margins, and offer your clients the highly personalised service they demand.
Regulatory pressure is just one reason to get your data house in order. If you rely on one or two staff members to maintain complex excel spreadsheets or user developed applications, you’re exposed to unnecessary risk. You’re also missing out on cost efficiencies of up to 30%. And you’re dependent on important business processes that require better CBOR data such as verifying rebate payments or forecasting assets at risk and redemption.
Alpha Data Solutions bring consistency, accuracy and visibility to your data:
Our solutions are based on experience.
You can’t just bolt a system on to your business processes. Businesses are tempted to buy a well-known system and expect it to work with their highly specialist work flows. With decades of experience in the industry, we tailor systems to the precise challenges you face. And because we work with clients across the sector we know what works and what to avoid.
We bring common standards to a chaotic world of data.
You need to have your investments on several platforms for the maximum reach to potential customers. But different platforms have different standards, which makes your life complex. With our SalesVista 360 you only need to input the data once to satisfy the demands of all the platforms you subscribe to. Very quickly you’re data compliant.
We manage the risk as well as the data.
Managing data is highly complex to get right. The risk of error is high. So it’s crucial that the data is managed scrupulously – and that’s expensive to do in house. Our proven solutions bring bullet proof data management, reducing labour costs and risk at the same time. CEOs benefit from having complete visibility across their business.
Alpha 360 SalesVista
360 SalesVista is Alpha Data Solutions' enterprise application that harmonises hundreds of transaction and master data sources to produce a Daily Client Book of Record – flows, holdings and revenue matched to your firm’s master data for client, product and agreement.
Daily CBOR outputs are reconciled rigorously and packaged in a variety of analytical outputs at lower cost and greater accuracy, providing earlier access to actionable insights that are scalable and trusted across the Enterprise – a cost effective replacement for ageing local solutions and the cottage industry of spreadsheets currently in place across much of the industry.
Our team have many years of experience in the sector, helping clients analyse data to understand their businesses and make better decisions.
