Solutions to empower enterprise decision-makers
Make nimble, data-driven, strategic decisions, in a snap
Strategic resource allocations are often made with limited analytical rigor, looking in a rear-view mirror. SnapStrat decisions are different. They are made looking forward, balancing all key criteria, and they are continuously improving. The result produces better outcomes than decisions made ad hoc or based on spreadsheets and slides.
This is more than decision-making as usual. SnapStrat combines predictive analytics and scenario modeling with the power of machine learning to make enterprise decision-making more effective than ever.
And in today’s rapidly changing business environment, nothing less will do.
Better insights, better outcomes, all from your existing data.How does SnapStrat’s software use the power of data science to empower enterprise decision-making?

About your Data Science: How is prediction/optimization handled?
At SnapStrat, we pride ourselves on being transparent about our white-box algorithms. Customers are always welcome to peek under the hood at our trusted predictive models, logistical regression algorithms, mixed-integer programming optimizations, and the other tools we apply to your datasets. Applications are case-dependent, but we’re committed to making sure you know what’s driving your strategy.
We need to save $100 million. Which projects are the lower priority?
Your dashboard won’t tell you that. It may tell you what you need to save, but it won’t tell you how to budget. SnapStrat puts the strategy into your data-driven decision-making.
What does your Engagement model look like?
We have a rapidly configurable set of components that we use to map your existing workflow and data resources. Because these are low-velocity decisions, our implementation is lightweight. There is no need for lengthy integrations that force more burdens on your IT department. We’ll work with your cross-functional team throughout the data discovery and decision mapping process. We’ll then configure our platform for your decision, and come back to you with the training and ongoing support you need to ensure your organization gets full value out of the improved strategic decision process.
How are we going to decide which customers to focus on with the new strategy?
Hint: The answer isn’t “The same way we always have.” The answer is to use a custom tool that helps you make the decisions your business strategy depends on.
Configuration: How do you map to my team’s Workflow?
When you buy our product, you are also buying our upfront design and discovery process. With an efficient set of interviews, and one cross-functional design-thinking workshop, our team translates your current decision process, strategic criteria, and cross-functional linkages into our platform to build a tailored product that will feel familiar, but drive an enormous jump in collaboration efficiency and decision quality.
We have all of this data yet nothing changes. Why?
Short answer: Because decisions drive change, not data. SnapStrat provides decision tools that let you use your data to make strategic decisions. Fast.
Our data is messy and complex. How do you handle data ingestion/creation and what data formats do you support? What data do you need (ETL, surveys, etc.)?
The SnapStrat team has a half-century of combined knowledge when it comes to getting the most out of imperfect, incomplete, or tangled data sources. Through a mix of customization, ETL, and data generation within your organization when there is a data gap (using surveys), there’s no data situation we can’t work with.
Customer support: How will you train my team and support the subscription product after implementation?
A SnapStrat decision includes an initial implementation fee that covers the upfront discovery and customization. The SaaS subscription fee then guarantees that the tool stays relevant, up-to-date, and easy to use. The subscription cost overs the basics – hosting, security, data and algorithm updates – but it also includes ongoing support for training, product support, and product improvements. We stick with our customers, knowing the decisions we implement are central to driving their success.
Can my team really use machine learning?
Machine learning is built into products and services we use every day, ranging from your automobile to Amazon. No special skills are required to use machine learning, it works in the background to ensure that the recommendations the SnapStrat platform provides your team both improve over time and adapt to changing business conditions.
Is my data good enough?
“We don’t have perfect data” is one of the most common objections to moving to data-driven decision making. The reality is that you are making these decisions today, regardless of how little data you have. Your data does not need to be perfect to improve these decisions, just good enough to improve the expected outcome. We find that in almost all cases your existing data will improve decision outcomes and to back that up, we offer a Rapid Opportunity Assessment that will evaluate the improvement potential in your data without any further commitment. Furthermore, once your team sees the impact of better use of data, it will transform the quality of data capture and tracking going forward.
