Transforming the data ecosystem to optimize decision making

The Challenge

Levain Bakery, renowned for its delectable cookies, faced challenges in consolidating its data infrastructure to establish a Single Source of Truth (SSOT). While growing a business across multiple channels, including online, in-store, and resale grocery, the absence of a unified data repository significantly hindered decision-making and operational efficiency. Additionally, the lack of streamlined processes in marketing analytics and finance reporting posed hurdles in understanding past performance and planning for future initiatives.

The Solution

With the help of Argano, a trusted partner in data management and analytics, Levain Bakery transformed its entire data ecosystem. By implementing a hosted data infrastructure and integrating over 8 source systems, Argano established a robust data warehouse, serving as the cornerstone for BI reporting — a decisive step towards achieving an SSOT.

In tandem, Argano provided role-based licensing and expert guidance in deploying Tableau for marketing analytics, empowering Levain Bakery to delve into historical marketing endeavors and strategize for the future effectively. Similarly, through role-based licensing and meticulous implementation services, Argano enabled Levain’s finance team to amalgamate disparate data sets, automate reporting processes, and gain comprehensive insights across various platforms.
