    Report communication also supports your branding goals.
  • Targeted content for your audience
    Reach your target group with specifically selected content.

Push Reporting exploits hidden potential and improves return.

Today’s paradox

High effort for moderate outcome

Companies take an enormous effort to produce their reports. But as soon as they are published, stakeholders are expected to find the reports themselves. No other comparable cost-intensive product would be communicated so little.

Heavy and intense workload

Content production for each report causes an enormous effort. In comparison, communication activities are planned with a much smaller extent.

Giant, six-figure budgets

Six-figure budgets are invested to create a report. On contrary, companies spend a minimal amount on communication.

Large amounts of time invested

Teams of different persons are involved and easily spend hundreds of hours on creation. Relative to this: One user reads 3 minutes per visit on average.

  • Workload
  • Budget
  • Time

Oops, this pretty much describes our last report communication efforts.
