Before leveraging Fivetran, ShopKeep relied on a small team to centralize data from disparate sources. After building a few of its own data pipelines, it realized it had too many sources to maintain. The team was spending far too long syncing individual tables and databases into its warehouse, and employees were downloading data from different places.
Peter Knox, Director of Product Management, saw an opportunity to redirect the company's resources away from data engineering and toward strategic product development. Fivetran enables ShopKeep to rapidly deploy connections to sources and load the data into its warehouse in a ready-to-query format. Quick access to data means the company can be much more efficient with its people and time. With everyone accessing the same up-to-date information, it's much easier for the business to be data-driven.
