The Art of Automation: For engaging, insightful and accurate large-scale reporting

Room 4 | 11:30 am - 12:00 pm | Thursday, May 4, 2023

Report automation is often thought of as limited to just mass generation of charts, but it can be so much more than that. Automated reporting is ideal for any repetitive type project; continuous, trackers, multi-market studies, customer/employee satisfaction and concept/ad tests – even where brand lists and questionnaires vary between markets and waves, handling multiple levels of statistical testing and conditional placement of indicators and brand logos. 
DJS runs many employee satisfaction studies. There are multi-departmental projects with subtle differences between how the numerous department level reports need to be reported, automated calculations of current scores versus previous year and conditional indicators. 
This joint presentation between DJS and E-Tabs explores how, with the right level of planning, an innovative automation solution can be implemented that saves many days and weeks of manual data-posting and charting on every project, with the added bonus of happier staff, happier clients and increased profit margins. 
The presentation will cover the process of large-scale automated reporting for traditional projects in both PowerPoint and Google Slides, including some live examples of how E-Tabs has improved the depth and quality of our offer to clients. 

Key takeaways:

  1. What to look for and plan when automating your reporting of large projects.
  2. Key differences when automating PowerPoint versus Google Slides.
  3. Automation isn’t just relevant to trackers and continuous studies but many study types.
