We want to help you fuel growth and innovation at your company for many years to come
Why We’re Here
We know you are under pressure from your company’s investors, customers and employees. They want to know what’s being done about ESG and with good reason. Many ESG – environmental, social and goverance – challenges are now so pervasive that they create fundamental risks for all companies. The goal goes beyond just reporting. It’s about embedding ESG into all your business decisions in order to optimize financial and ESG performance. As the change agent for ensuring sustainable corporate value, you may be feeling overwhelmed and underequipped. You are not alone.
What’s your role? You may work in sustainability but just as likely in finance or operations. And that’s the point. ESG is an interdisciplinary challenge—and to address it, you’ll need to implement a system that builds bridges across the corporation and motivates company-wide adoption. You will need robust integrated data sets organized in a decision-useful way. The good news is that this effort can be a catalyst to not only address emerging ESG risks, but also fuel growth and innovation at your company for many years to come.
What’s our role? Insights7 enables you to integrate your financial and ESG data into a single platform. It’s organized around a customizable value chain structure in which you evaluate how you’re doing today—and where you can confidently make the most impactful improvements going forward. This structure helps turn ESG into a driver of overall business value optimization.
By implementing ESG Value Optimization with Insights7, you’ll be empowering teams at all levels to create a better and more valuable company.
How We Got Here
The Insights7 platform was originally developed to underpin our professional and managed services with the goal of ensuring quality, consistency and efficiency. Our customers responded enthusiastically and more often than not, asked to integrate our platform into their standard operating procedures. They consistently expanded the platform across their organizations and realized a force multiplier of value that made our product loved. Our opportunity to make a bigger impact became clear. We made the decision to commercialize our platform and pivot to a SaaS product company that can be deployed tactically or strategically across an entire company. Today clients use our platform with supporting services. However, we are using every engagement and client interaction to learn how to get to an effective self-service SaaS model as quickly as possible so we can scale quality, consistency and efficiency.
The foundational idea behind our technology is this: all work being done throughout a company has to be clear on its why. To get the best return on the company’s resources, everyone must be clear on how their work impacts customer, stakeholder and shareholder value. Our platform was built to help companies understand, measure and manage this work-to-value equation.
In 2021, we took our value proposition to a whole new level by integrating ESG and multi-capital value creation into our platform. ESG metrics are just the starting point. We believe that ESG must be about value optimization—for all customers, shareholders and stakeholders. Our customers see our approach as an easy, low-cost way to evaluate and adopt at their own speed – investing time and resources incrementally. Scale and pay only when you see success—and at your pace.
We know you are on this challenging ESG journey. We can help you be the leader who gets it done.
