Before Fivetran, Fountain had no internal reporting system and no centralized location for data to live and teams relied on engineers to run ad hoc queries. Mark Schindler, Product Manager at Fountain, knew he didnt want to manage an ETL solution in-house.
Schindler set up a Fivetran account, connected a few sources, and had data syncing within minutes. With data centralized into its warehouse, Fountain employees have a single source of truth to go to for reporting needs. Schindler estimates that Fivetran saves Fountain dozens of hours a week across multiple engineers, giving the team peace of mind and the time to explore data and work on new, exciting projects.
Without Fivetran, Schindler believes Fountain would be limited to customer-success related analytics through particular apps, like Zendesk or Salesforce. But Fivetran has opened the door to new analytics, including product and engineering analytics that internal teams use to make data-driven decisions.
