How do you get the most value out of your data?
Businesses don’t care about data points. They care about running their business. They need to use their data to find insights and drive action. Traditional reporting platforms flood displays with trivial data and neglect to provide guidance on using the data to benefit the business.
We turn data into action through custom tailored design and development.
We build guided data analytics via highly interactive and customized web applications. Our solutions utilize UI, UX, and data visualization best practices to produce precise visual analyses that lead users to insight and action.
We work with clients to define the best solution.
We strive to understand client needs and the role that data plays in them. We actively engage with our clients as we design in an interactive approach, defining and redefining the solution that best addresses their goals.
We build fast, cross-platform experiences.
Our solutions are built on best in class modern web technologies. Our architecture ensures that our apps perform smoothly and look great on any device. We leverage solutions including Qlik, Tableau and other BI tools, AngularJS for the front-end, and D3 for custom visualization.
Our design philosophy is that the data is the most important part of the application. A data app’s purpose is to deliver business data in a consumable form. This principle guides our decision making in all parts of the design and development process.
Our design work focuses on 3 areas: UI, UX and Data Visualization.
In order for users to effectively analyze information, they need a tool with an organized, intuitive structure that enables them to work without distracting from the data. With this in mind, we create simple, clean user interfaces that serve as a subtle backdrop to the analytics.
If the data visualized in an app is not laid out properly, users will have difficulty engaging with the information. We design our apps so that there is a logical flow to the visual analysis. We call this process guided analytics. We believe in the power of exploratory analysis; when it is paired with the proper arrangement and workflow of data, the data analysis process is streamlined.
Proper data visualization reveals patterns and trends, separating the actionable information from the noise. We design visualizations that address specific questions. Our graphs incorporate interactivity and a combination of marco and micro level details that enhance the analysis with configurable views and supplemental information.
Axis Group has been recognized numerous times by Qlik for our design work. In the last two years, we’ve won the following design and development competitions:

Contributions to the community
We actively participate in the data visualization community. We share best practices and discuss design principles on our blog. We host numerous code examples on GitHub, including our own code libraries for visualizing data with Qlik Sense and d3js. Some example projects include:
d3 visualization library, an extension object for Qlik Sense that integrates 30 d3js chart examples into one configurable chart object
d3 Lasso, a d3 plugin which enables users to lasso select elements with their mouse
