Founded by a former accountant slash surfer from Tahiti who wanted to help entrepreneurs, decision makers, and accountants to transformed their data and present them visually like a financial map. A financial map that you can see anytime. No need to call anyone, wait for working hours, and then get a confusing answer. A financial map knows where you are at any given moment, knows how far away you are from your projections and how much you advanced from your starting point. The map doesn't seems important when you have it. But when you don't have it, you are lost.
As the author, data journalist and information designer, David McCandless, said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map. And when you're lost in information, an information map is kind of useful."
Eight years ago, I was helping one of my clients who was an entrepreneur make major decisions about his company. His company was in trouble because he lacked the necessary overview of his financial status: He had to make important decisions witch had a direct impact on 50 employees and their family. It was an intense time for both of us. I spent hours analyzing and presenting relevant financial numbers to my client in a way he could understand them and which let him make good decisions to drive his business upward. Fortunately, after few months, we succeeded in saving his company and the 50 jobs. I remember how I felt after this episode. I was happy to have helped him.
Ever since then I realized that if I could transform financial numbers automatically using data visualizations, I could help a lot of entrepreneurs keep their business alive and move forward."
