Harvest Exchange is a collaborative marketplace where finance professionals and firms share financial expertise for the purposes of discovery, transparency, and client communication.

The Problem:

Businesses need a handle on their data in order to better understand their customers’ behavior. For example, if companies make changes to their website, they need to see if it improves or negatively impacts key performance indicators (KPIs). First, build basic data analytics as a foundation then you can implement more sophisticated tools for deeper insights.

Jeff Dorman, Chief Operating Officer

“Matchnode provided us with real-time data that helped fuel our business, allowing us to focus on our ideas, vision and product. They started with very basics (reporting on incoming and outbound site traffic) and as our business grew, they adapted with us to provide more advanced tools and insights that supported new goals and projects. Matchnode integrated their skills into our business model, and became part of the Harvest team."
