Trust Your Data

Introducing The Hippo Hub – a versatile software platform to get data you can trust to drive change and standardize workflows.

When does The Hippo Hub make sense?

 

When information is scattered throughout your group in spreadsheets or multiple toolsets, resulting in fire drills and important tasks "dropping through the cracks."
When reports take too long to produce, contributing to late, inaccurate, or "massaged" data.
When your leaders and managers struggle to communicate important data concisely and effectively.
When your data is missing meaningful metrics and / or datasets.
When people are not fully adopting your data management tools.

What Is The Hippo Hub?

A software platform to get you meaningful data you can trust.

An Online Database Platform

to collect any and all important data in one place.

A Workflow Automation Tool

to eliminate mistakes, garbage, and missing data sets.

A Customizable Reporting Platform

to seamlessly deliver data where it’s needed, when it’s needed.

Why The Hippo Hub?

We’ve worked with hundreds of leaders over the last 15+ years who struggle to trust their data.  It’s more than just a new tool.  It’s a completely customizable tool + a process to get people to embrace it.

What Our Clients Say

We’ve worked with clients like you for 15+ years to provide the software platform to get data they can trust.

We have a firm grasp of where we are with every project. Bottlenecks are much less of a problem now, and we’ve been able to find a couple of areas with major process inefficiencies. Paul Neighbors

Lundeen Interiors

This system allows us to collaborate efficiently without regard to time zones, and keeps everyone focused on the projects that have been identified by management. Project management is viewed by our associates, customers, and external auditors as one of the strongest aspects of the company. Tim Frost

Burner Systems International

All managers have the same information across the board at the same time. We revamped our methods as we discovered bottlenecks and pitfalls in our processes. These improvements have allowed us to quicken our time to market and become more competitive. Gerry Chicoine

Feature Set: Unlimited, Automated Reporting

The Hippo Hub provides a high level of reporting versatility to “see” things like workflows, metrics, project status, and predicted delivery outcomes.  What if you could actually predict outcomes, see how utilization will impact new delivery commitments, find problems early, and know exactly what to improve?

Customizable Metrics and Reports

Create unlimited custom metrics and reports to run your business the way you want, and to measure efficiency.  Generate traditional table-based reports, matrix-style statistical reports, charts, and even custom formatted Word and Excel reports…all customizable.

Automated Utilization Calculations

Calculate real-time resource utilization data, one of the critical pieces of data that is missing from most leader’s reporting set.  Start seeing actual impacts to new work, making truly informed decisions, and improving your execution.

Dashboards and Dissemination

Create dashboards with your metrics and reports, schedule reports for automated email dissemination, or push them to other systems.  In other words, get the right data in the hands of the right people at the right time.

Feature Set: Automate Your Workflow

Most groups waste time and energy on ineffective tools that require too much time to manage.  This causes frustration and complacency.  The Hippo Hub’s innovative automation features reduce the time for your average engineer to manage their projects by more than 50%…while generating the detailed project plans and resource utilization data to drive serious workflow efficiency.

l
Project Checklist Tool

Leverage The Hippo Hub’s sophisticated Project Checklist for engineers to quickly select the elements needed for a particular project or job.  Allow the sophisticated algorithm, based on your business rules, to do most of the heavy lifting to create your project plans and schedules.

Automated Workflow

The Hippo Hub’s workflow engine manages the creation and execution of your projects and jobs, including approval and notification rules.  Give your leaders and managers the information they need to make good work onboarding decisions while removing unnecessary manual steps.

One Stop Shop

Engineers and team members shouldn’t have to waste time to find information about work assigned to them, or to provide input and status information about that work.  The Hippo Hub’s personalized work page is a one stop shop for your engineers and team members to see and update…everything.

Feature Set: Simplify Toolsets

Sometimes it makes more sense to continue using existing toolsets, but The Hippo Hub gives you the option to consolidate them to save time and money.  That’s because it also integrates traditional tools, like Gantt charts, document versioning, time reporting, cost tracking, and a  job database.  It’s a complete platform to easily consolidate existing spreadsheets and toolsets to save you time and money.

Customizable Online Database
Store all information about your projects and jobs in one place, including project meta-data, tasks, document versions, resources, costs, and even issues, risks, and more.
Task Management Tools

The Hippo Hub provides tools to manage your project and job’s tasks, including Gantt charts, scheduling functions, resource assignment, effort estimates, and inter-task dependencies.

Time and Cost Tracking

Optionally track the time spent on projects and tasks for a holistic view of estimated and actual data.  And don’t forget about the option to track both labor and fixed costs to predict both schedule and budget delivery outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How can I try out The Hippo Hub?

Schedule a tour with us so that we can have a conversation about your data needs.  If our solution seems like a match for your data needs, we’ll create a trial site for you to use.

How long does it take to implement?

A basic setup of our online database platform can be up and running in 24 hours.  Typically, to walk through our process to get a system in place that actually produces meaningful data takes 30-60 days.

Can I just get a trial without talking to anyone?

No, we’re after results.  Our tool is completely customizable and intrinsically linked to our process.  There is little value without both.  As such, we start with a conversation about your existing data need, make a recommendation, and show you how to customize the platform. Then we’ll turn you loose with a trial.

How much does it cost?

Typically the cost per user per month ranges from $22 to $54 per month depending on the number of people and the complexity of the solution.

Can I host the software on my own server(s)?

Yes, we offer a self-hosted platform.  Schedule a tour and we can walk you through the requirements and costs of such an implementation.

Do I have to implement your platform?

No, we also use our process to help clients trust the data they are getting out of their current systems. Schedule a tour and we can walk through the process together.
