When the planet needs data, GlobeScan and Forsta unite

Tools used

  • Deck creation
  • Infographic dashboards
  • PowerPoint batch reporting

How our software helped global insights and advisory consultancy GlobeScan deliver their knowledge faster than ever.

The challenge

Rising above the menial

GlobeScan’s reporting process was weighed down. They had third parties to pay and control for quality. Revisions to manually input if clients wanted specific data. Excel charts scrambled when transferred to PowerPoint. What could they do to make reports and PowerPoints for clients less agonizing?

“We found a way to incorporate Forsta into our workflow in a way that gives our clients the classic PowerPoint reports that they want and the time and cost savings that we desire. Having these capabilities was slick, impressed the client and made us look like a larger organization than we were.”

Our solution

Fear not the edits

Forsta helps GlobeScan meet their clients where they are. With our flexible online dashboards and PowerPoint production tool, they can now help clients who want the whole package – but also the ones who just want slides to go.  

GlobeScan’s clients were impressed. Making quick changes are no longer the pain they used to be. And with Forsta’s Tab Archive function, GlobeScan can load external files to the dashboard to be accessible to an easily updateable list of users.

The results

Quality reports tailored to the client

For the GlobeScan team, using Forsta’s platform saved them time and money, cutting the time it takes to make each report by 40%.  

And for their clients, it meant getting the quality information they know and love, but with more choices than ever on design, filters and permission systems for their slides and dashboards. Changes to PowerPoint decks are now just an easy update away.
