Inhabit IQ’s tech-forward products run the gamut of the real estate industry, providing solutions for everything from vacation homes to student housing to single family residents. As such, they manage a lot of data. Customers files, third-party data, and internal data all provide valuable information, but can be extremely labor intensive to prepare for analytic use. It used to require up to four weeks for a pair of full-time Inhabit IQ employees to collect, transform, and output a variety of data in Excel reports. Worse yet, Inhabit IQ would sometimes later discover that the data had been incorrectly transformed and what had been the basis of their business decisions for months (or even a year) was, in fact, faulty.
How Trifacta Solved this Problem
Inhabit IQ built a modernized data ecosystem that included Snowflake as a centralized data warehouse, Fivetran for data ingestion, Stitch as a receiving point for customer data, Trifacta for data engineering, and PowerBI for data visualization. The stack allowed for faster, more streamlined data pipelines. Trifacta, in particular, was instrumental in accelerating the data transformation process and instilling data quality checkpoints that gave Inhabit IQ greater confidence in its data. Now, regardless of the data type or its source, Inhabit IQ can quickly gather and blend this data together—10 times faster than before. For the first time, Inhabit IQ has created a real-time, shared view of its data that not only demonstrates what kind of data is being imported, but what the data means for the business.
10X Faster Reporting
Trifacta’s low-code, visual interface allows Inhabit IQ to accelerate its data transformations.
More Trustworthy Data
Data quality checkpoints and alerts ensure that Inhabit IQ has the most trustworthy version of its data.
The ability to quickly combine data of all types—relational, non-relational, JSON, CSV—allows Inhabit IQ to build complex, robust reporting.
Inhabit IQ is a unique collective of tech-forward companies serving the vacation and property management industries. Its brands’ strategic partnerships deliver best-in-class software solutions and services while fostering innovation and collaboration with like-minded entrepreneurs and industry leaders.
“We have orchestrated Trifacta to work with Snowflake. For data preparation, we're more content with a visual interface than writing code, and it makes the process 10 times faster. Just imagine how many differing versions there would be of ‘Florida’ and how much code I'd need to write to get to ‘FL.’ Instead with Trifacta, I'm able to just select and apply the rules to all the sources.”
