Essential Business Lenses

Solve your business problems using Essential Business Lenses based on the Essential platform.

Using a number of specialised views and algorithms, Essential can help you identify opportunities in your organisation to support different business outcomes, such as portfolio rationalisation, IT transformation, strategic resource balancing, etc.

The lenses are switchable once a year, so you can utilise them for one programme of work then move to another lens once that programme is complete.

You can also purchase solution lenses, such as Data Privacy, which are focused on addressing specific problems. These are priced individually.

Alternatively, you can pay us to build specific vews for you. A complex view normally takes us a few days of effort, contact us to get a quote

If you're interested in any of these packs, working with us to develop new packs or want some specific views then we'd love to hear from you.
