Data visualisation provides deep analysis and real-time insights

Posted by Grant Buckley on 25/01/2021 10:00:00 AM

Harmoney is Australasia’s largest personal loan marketplace, facilitating over $1.7 billion in loans to nearly 50,000 customers in both Australia and New Zealand.

Since its launch in 2014, Harmoney has worked tirelessly to transform the way people borrow and lend money. Their success can be linked back to their innovative way of using data to streamline the application process for their borrowers while also improving the accuracy of credit risk assessments.

To achieve this, however, they needed to ensure they had the right data infrastructure in place.

Driving innovation in the personal loan market

Posted by Grant Buckley on 2/12/2020 10:00:00 AM

Harmoney is an award-winning online lending platform providing New Zealanders and Australians with competitive interest rates for their personal loans.

But that’s not the only thing that sets them apart from traditional banks and lending institutions. Rather than requiring people to decide who is worthy of a loan, they use ‘technology, science, and mountains of data’ to help make these decisions – and do it better and faster.

To achieve this, they needed the right technology stack. Technology that allowed them to store and access decision-making data, using it to help improve the customer experience and inject more fairness into loan approvals.

Keeping People Safe With Rapid Contact Tracing

Posted by Dee Lern on 19/10/2020 11:20:18 AM


The Challenge.

With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for organisations to be able to perform rapid detection and contact tracing within their workforce.

At Southern Cross Hospitals (SCH), there were no systems in place to correlate all possible interactions between their hospital staff members (doctors, nurses, staff) and patients. This made it a challenge for effective and specific contact tracing, should the need arise.

Using Tableau to Drive ROI

Posted by FIRN Analytics on 12/11/2019 1:33:26 PM

Return on Investment (ROI) is an important KPI for any organisation.

You want to make sure that the effort you’re putting in, the changes you’re implementing and decisions you’re making are generating returns for your business.

Organisations that use data to drive their decisions, understand that using data effectively can have a significant impact on an organisation’s ROI. When you’re able to use your data to generate the right reports at the right time, teams are able to adapt more swiftly to changes and make decisions that will drive increased revenue and ROI.

However, for many organisations, using their data effectively is still a struggle. Data is housed in silos and any results generated from the analysis may be difficult to understand. 

With advanced analytics and visualisation capabilities, Tableau can help your organisation get better insights faster, and drive increased ROI.

Here’s how:

Go Beyond Excel with Tableau

Posted by FIRN Analytics on 24/09/2019 1:54:00 PM

Excel has been used for years by organisations to perform data analysis. At a glance it seems like the perfect tool. You’re able to manipulate data, run calculations and then create charts and graphs to visually present your findings.

Tableau in comparison is a relatively new tool, and to the uninitiated, offers many of the same features and capabilities as Excel. Both are used for data analysis and generate easy to understand data visualisations. 

However, there are a few distinct differences between the two tools.
