Turning data into dollars

As the big data explosion continues unabated, many executives struggle to extract value and drive differentiation through data analytics. Maine Pointe is uniquely positioned to help CEOs and senior executives visualize and realize the power of data to create an optimized, demand-driven digital supply chain for competitive advantage, turning data into dollars.

Whether it’s exploiting data from inventory sensors to proactively replenish client stock, or leveraging it to minimize downtime and optimize maintenance services, our data analysts are here to help.

What we do: Unlock value 

Important market, supplier, product, pricing, operations, distribution, sales, marketing, and customer data is often incomplete or resides in functional silos. Being technology agnostic, our data analytics capability helps clients aggregate and visualize information from big data, the client’s supply chain, and customer behavior to deliver actionable insights for executives and turn that data into dollars.

Our approach is not only proven but, more importantly, pragmatic and results-driven. Our analysts use sophisticated tools to carry out advanced mining, analysis, modeling and predictive techniques. These help clients transform data into insight for operational implementation and business advantage.
