4 years ago, VanData was no more than an idea. An idea rooted in the thought that there was a gap in the market of quality business intelligence (BI) consultants that served smaller companies at a cost they could afford. Giving smaller companies that edge would lend them the advantage necessary to challenge larger competitors. It would help companies achieve the return on investment (ROI) on the software platforms they had spent money implementing. The creation of VanData closed that gap, and the VanData team helped to provide that ROI. Nick VanderLaan, founder and owner of the company, didn’t imagine when VanData was first created that it would grow into the driven, business intelligence reporting company it has become today.
VanData isn’t like other BI consulting companies.
As Nick lays out:
The ability to be agile, to adapt to client processes, and to quickly turnaround work define VanData. This is valuable as we can be contracted and turn work around the same day… we understand the need to move as quickly and as efficiently as possible. At the same time, VanData places an importance on the ability to integrate with each client’s individual environment, enabling communication and making it easier for them to stay ahead on their own work.
VanData’s dynamic approach allows us to contract with both smaller and larger companies, while still maintaining a client-based focus. Our team understands that each client’s need is different, there is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to business intelligence and reporting. Another differentiator? VanData focuses on supplementing, not replacing existing teams. Compared to other companies that focus solely on application development, our team’s skills extend to include data management, manipulation, and reporting on existing applications. Our refined training processes allows our developer-heavy team to keep prices low and still offer quality, tailored solutions to clients. This includes data migration, interface development, data/document conversions, Crystal reports, QlikView or Qlik Sense work and reporting, PowerBI reports, MS Access, SSIS extract reports, and SAP-related work.
Since 2015, VanData has grown, adapted, and developed—both in the solutions we offer and as a team. We continue to learn as the business intelligence field shifts, because this gives you the ability to stay ahead of the curve and enables you not only to compete in your respective market, but to win.
