Frequently Asked Questions

There is no software to download, the application is browser based, so works in any modern evergreen browser (Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox).

If you are connecting to a 'normal data source' implementation is almost instantaneous. If you want to consolidate a bespoke or unusual data source we will probably need to do a few weeks work to get you set up.

We have designed the platform to require no training, but are on hand during implementation to make sure you are up and running.

You can log requests or question on the chat function and we will quickly be on hand to support. Remember we cant see the data, so will need to work together to resolve any data related issues.

Covid prevalence data is public data that is sourced from multinational health organisations, universities & governments. This data is updated to the forecast daily.
As there is no software to download and the data never leaves your network then there is no technical reason to involve IT.

We sometimes find it helpful to speak with IT so that we can make sure the data is being updated in the most efficient way, and API's are set up appropriately.

Some organisation would rather host our application on their internal servers, and this works well when the data is being shared with many different people within the organisation.

If this is the preferred route, then there are some steps your IT department will need to undertake, but the whole process just takes a few hours. As you would expect, the data still doesn’t leave your network.

We can't see your data, so there is no need to sign a release.

However to test your custom reports or to set up a new data source, we often require randomised or anonymised data to check that everything works as planned.

You can use the application on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. There is also a progressive web app option for mobiles/ tablets.

Implementing for mobile takes a few moments to set up, and requires the mobile to be able to access a customer data store (e.g. sharepoint)

If however your IT department host the app on their servers, the data management part is handled by them, and so this step isn’t needed, and will work on mobile out of the box.

If you have any data API connections to receive data handoffs from your TMC, expense tool, card company etc. You can connect the app to the API directly. Your data still doesn’t leave your ecosystem and is just read by the application.
You can extract all or part of the data for download.

We also have PDF print downloads as a presentation

As part of the data management we look for anomolous or unusual transactions. These can be viewed separately as a report which can be shared with your suppliers to correct or confirm.
If you decide to continue using the application through 2021 to track your forecast - there is a monthly subscription between $500-$2,000 a month depending on the number of data sources connected and the number of users.

Billing is monthly in advance in USD. Discounts can be applied if pay for 12 months subscription in advance

We are agile and customer focussed, and want to make sure you get a solution that works for you. If you need something customized, we are very happy to do this, but will need to agree a price.
