Data is only as useful as the action taken from the analysis of it

Collaborative AuthoringThe ability work alone or in teams, across geographies and even through time is baked into CALUMO. We call this Collaborative Authoring.

Users with little technical capability can produce finished dynamic reports working alone. These reports often fuel a broader discussion where others can view them, download their source immediately, modify and republish within minutes. Individuals and teams can work with private reports as they develop and choose to release them as Public Reports when they are ready. At any time, earlier versions can be reviewed, scavenged for parts (e.g. great looking charts, form and substance) and used in later iterations of the reports or planning templates under development.

Why is Collaborative Authoring important?

By way of example, let’s consider the use of CALUMO across time. All versions of web reports are retained and can be brought back into Excel for further work or re-use quickly and easily. The analysts or users of today can easily retrieve original reports from many years past and either use them as-is or enhance them further. Adding rich help text takes seconds which means that report authors can be absolutely clear about what they are reporting on, why it matters and how it’s done.

As teams form, separate and re-form, nothing is lost and no time is wasted searching for previous versions of reports or wondering what the original author may have been trying to achieve.
