Google Cloud Results

  • 30% Improved data visualization for comparisons of year-on-year data.
  • 60% Added data visualization will encourage more of our producers to participate in the survey
  • 50% Improvement in process efficiency and ease of use reporting 

The challenge

Vinpro annually conducts a comprehensive benchmarking survey within the South African Wine Industry (essentially since the ’80s).  Can Opennetworks help with visualizing the data and offer a user-friendly dashboard, and can they present a dashboard showing year-on-year data in the same report?

The solution

Using the speed of BigQuery’s computational power and Data Studio’s visualization capabilities. Scatter Charts were used to visualise the average of vineyards yields and price points, year on year.
We now have the ability to analyse and compare yields from multiple years to better formulate future strategies.

The result

The solution enables a more strategic and long-term view of the data.  Allowing eyes on the data of individual wine farm units.  The choice of the spread of off-takers will encourage more of our producer cellars and privates to join the survey. DataStudio’s user-friendly functionality and allows our economists a faster uptake on reporting.
