Feeding Westchester and Datatelligent Collaborate to Enhance Community Outreach Efforts
Connecting Donors, Volunteers, and the Community to Provide Data-Driven Solutions to Food Security Issues
GLEN ELLYN, Ill., December 23, 2021 — Datatelligent, LLC (www.datatelligent.ai) today announced it has been selected by Feeding Westchester to create a dynamic data analytics solution that will enhance staff efficiency and improve collaboration with volunteers, donors, and board members. Drawing upon its extensive experience in the nonprofit sector, Datatelligent’s team will build a Unified Data Platform to collect, clean, and organize data from sources throughout the Feeding Westchester organization, providing staff with timely and accurate data — efficiently and easier than their current approach.
Feeding Westchester, based in Elmsford, New York, is Westchester County’s largest nonprofit hunger-relief organization, and in 2020, provided more than 18 million meals to people in need. It does an exemplary job serving its community and galvanizing volunteers and donors, and its leadership team recognized that staff could further enhance operations and outreach with a more robust, turnkey solution to collect, analyze and report data. Consequently, Datatelligent has been engaged to reimagine Feeding Westchester’s data analytics structure and build a platform using Snowflake to standardize data collection and reporting, integrate disparate information, create highly visual reports, and enhance collaboration throughout the organization.
Using Datatelligent’s Data Analytics as a Service (DAaaS) offering, Datatelligent staff are building a solution to collect, track and report data as it relates to food donations and distributions, fundraising, and volunteer activities. The platform will provide Feeding Westchester with up-to-date, easy to interpret data, speeding access to accurate information, decreasing staff time spent compiling reports, and improving timely decision-making efforts.
Additionally, the solution will tap into Datatelligent’s expert knowledge of Snowflake’s data cloud to centralize data storage which will allow Feeding Westchester staff to create highly visual reports enhancing understanding of disparate information.
“We are thrilled to be working with an organization that is doing so much good in its community, especially as the ongoing effects of the Covid pandemic continue to create challenges and need. We look forward to creating an innovative solution in support of Feeding Westchester’s mission,” said Larry Blackburn, Chief Data Transformation Officer, Datatelligent.
Datatelligent is 100% focused on data, analytics, and AI solutions. We help organizations compete and thrive in today’s data-driven world by providing a unique Data Analytics as a Service (DAaaS) approach—the People and Platform in Partnership with businesses—to achieve data and analytic success.
