BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COMPANY:
Founded by Paul Alexander and William Beresford in 2007, Beyond Analysis has grown to become a leader in customer insight across the globe. Just one year after being founded, Beyond Analysis launched in Australia. The company’s unique retail and financial services proposition was developed in 2009.
In 2011, Visa Europe took a minority stake in the UK business in order to deliver ground-breaking advances in data analytics. The investment formed part of its strategy to deliver increased value for consumers, retailers and banks through electronic payments, as well as enabling banks and retailers to better segment and target their marketing efforts and drive brand loyalty, purchase behaviour and traffic.
Beyond Analysis has since expanded further: Singapore in 2011; South Africa (via its partnership with UCS) in 2012, and; Denver, Colorado also in 2012.
PRODUCTS / SERVICES OFFERED:
Later this year Beyond Analysis will be launching its new and improved platform and product suite. The new suite will take the company’s existing tools and solutions and automate them, with the aiming of doing for the data analysis sector what Apple did for computing. This will deliver insight as a service platform, enabling clients to quickly spot data variances and immediately diagnose and drill down to understand what is happening – in no more than three clicks of a mouse or swipes of a finger. It will be delivered through clients’ devices of choice to suit the way they work, and shared across their business to keep everyone on the same page and working in the same direction – together.
Beyond Analysis is committed to supporting charitable organisations. For the first time in 2012, the company selected a ‘Charity of the Year’ to support from both a business and fundraising point of view.
This charity is Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK. As well providing the charity with analytical and campaign support to help grow its community of supporters and donations, the entire UK team at Beyond Analysis also threw themselves into a number of fundraising activities. Activities included a pub quiz and bake off day, as well as sponsored endurance events including a team entry into the Royal Parks Half Marathon.
Beyond Analysis was recently awarded the coveted Service Provider Excellence in Application of Analytics award at the 2013 Banking & Payments Asia Trailblazer Awards. The award recognised the company’s outstanding achievement in delivering significant incremental revenue to Robinsons department store, by helping them to better understand their customers and add value to their co-branded OCBC credit card in a fiercely competitive consumer market. By using data-led insight to help the company make decisions, engagement and response rates dramatically improved, with the 12 month pilot providing a return on investment of more than eight times the initial financial outlay.
