Avascent Analytics launches Compass, a Tool that Turns Budget Documents into Business Insights
Leader in defense market analytics announces new, affordable offering to visualize and analyze US defense budget data quickly and easily
WASHINGTON, DC – Avascent Analytics, the leading provider of market intelligence in global defense and aerospace markets, is pleased to announce its latest offering: Compass. Drawing on 30 years of experience analyzing U.S. budgets, Compass is a suite of tools designed to produce actionable business insights from budget materials quickly and easily. The Compass toolset has long been a part of Avascent’s analytic process, but Avascent is making it available directly to clients for the first time. It is the latest addition to the Avascent Analytics portfolio of market intelligence tools designed to help defense leaders and analysts make informed strategic and tactical decisions based on the best available information.
Compass combines a set of budget resources and analytic tools resources based on US government data in one convenient package. Specifically, Compass:
- Accurately captures, formats and presents budget and program data across multiple years, allowing analysts to understand both the new Administration’s priorities and where they diverge from the existing program;
- Adds expert-generated metadata and tags to data, permitting analysts to aggregate and assess trends in more meaningful, market and customer-focused categories to drive real insight;
- Compiles and presents this data both via sophisticated online visual tools as well as user-friendly Excel-compatible worksheets, allowing analysts to work with the data as they prefer;
- Generates PowerPoint slides and reports directly from the analytical tool, vastly simplifying the tedious task of translating analyses into reports appropriate for executive audiences.
“The Compass tools are an essential part of how we conduct our own analyses of US federal budgets,” observed Doug Berenson, Managing Director of Avascent Analytics. “Having witnessed clients spend hours poring through budget documents or paying for high cost tools that did little more than capture raw budget data, we decided to make Compass available to a wider audience.”
Compass allows users to extract detailed datasets in Excel with pre-built dashboard tab and pivot tables, in addition to formatted PowerPoint reports for easy sharing and briefing. “It was imperative in creating Compass that the data be easy to analyze, extract, and further share with colleagues,” added Nick Bird, Director of Product Development at Avascent Analytics. “The ability to generate slick PowerPoints and saying goodbye to blurry screenshots is a game changer, and the price of an annual subscription to Compass makes it a clear choice for anyone in the industry with a need for quick, easy, accurate defense budget analysis.”
The price for an annual subscription for Compass starts at just $500. For more information about Compass, visit avascentanalytics.com/compass.
