Industry First (from UrBizEdge): Data Analysis As A Service. You’ll Love It!


We recently came up with this innovative solution for busy professionals. It is an industry first: DaaS. Data Analysis As A Service. A subscription based service. In fact, I'll share with you the very announcement letter/email I sent out to our customers/leads.

Make us your secret weapon!

Have you ever experienced the analyst's block (kinda like writer's block, when you just don't know how to make the report you want)?

Have you ever felt your report could be better?

Have you ever felt like you were not making the most of the data at your disposal? Like there is more you could be uncovering and tracking and reporting?

Have you ever felt you need experts you can call on any day and at any time but won't cost you an arm and leg?

Okay, maybe I lied about the not costing you an arm and leg. The good thing is that we have structured it flexibly so you can always get more value than the cost.

We have created an industry first: DaaS (Data Analysis as a Service).

Maybe you have tried training. Perhaps you have attended our in-depth high value training class. You have our video learning materials, our book and our practice files. We hope you remember everything we taught you. However, things are changing. You are changing. Your work is changing. The industry is changing. Excel is changing. Power BI is changing. Everything is changing. You already have a demanding job and can't be spending all day keeping abreast of what's new and applicable to you as regards making the most of your data and reports. We are offering to be your secret weapon.

So what's the DaaS structured as?

It is simple and straightforward as ABC.

A. You can reach us remotely (calls, Skype, emails, SMS etc) and at our office (70b Olorunlogbon street, after Banex hotel, Anthony Village, Lagos) for targeted help with your office work. Note: we won't come to your office or house.
B. There is fair usage policy (FUP). So you have to book not less than 24hrs prior and you are entitled to 24hrs/month (which is equivalent to 3 full days) consulting time (both remote and physical). Any length of time above that will attract some extra small charge/fee.
C. You have a dedicated resource (more like technical account manager). It is not Michael. He/she is your primary contact, handles all your work requests, communication, meetings and projects. There is a pool of internal resources (Michael inclusive) he/she will draw on, as appropriate, to satisfy all your relevant needs. We have full-time data analysts that are already handling consulting projects and training, so just as skilled as Michael and they are the ones designated as technical account managers.

So how much does this cost?

That's the best part: there are four flexi plans.
  1. N45,000/month. You can cancel anytime and restart anytime (no refunds, when you cancel it means you just don't pay when your subscription elapses).
  2. N90,000/quarter
  3. N150,000/half-year
  4. N200,000/year
And it's not negotiable. Why that funny pricing structure? That is the result of our own in-house data analytics on the pricing.

We already bill N100,000/day for one-on-one consulting (corporate clients rate is N250,000/day) and even when we are overpowered by the superior negotiating tactics of some of you, we only go as low as N70,000/day for individuals. And that is 8 hrs at a go which is never as effective as two separate 4 hrs, and way less than the 24 hrs spreadable over an entire month that we are offering you at N45,000/month and even less than N19,000/month when you take the year option.

We can only service 10 people at the same time. So if you need our service but delay too much, you will have to wait for an open slot if all 10 slots are taken. And just as we can't review the price downwards, so also will we not accept you doubling the fee so we can take you up.
