Testimonials

There is no better feeling on earth than having a positive impact on the lives of the people and the communities we care about.

From the first time we spoke, I learned to look differently at the things my team and I do every day. The impact on the performance of our shop has been phenomenal. In just 3 months we experienced a 42% increase in month-over-month sales that can be directly attributed to our work with Dashmap.

Sue Benzuly, Owner
Evolve Apothecary & Spa

Dashmap delivers! After only a few weeks, we are seeing the financial benefits of better stock management. Unlike software tools, they actually come out to our shop and guide us through each step. The personal attention and understanding of who we are have made this experience effective and fun.

Christine Mulhall, Co-Owner
The Good Seed Natural Food Market

Working with Dashmap has been an enlightening experience. They designed a plan to position me as an expert in the field. And they tied tasks directly to measures of financial success. Most importantly, they’ve helped instill the confidence that I can take the business where I want it to go.

Shane Sauer, Owner
Matrix

Seeing our inventory and bundling with other brands on a daily basis has changed how we think about sales. Not only are we able to anticipate orders, reduce our lead times and increase sales at our current shops, but we also have a stronger sales story for new shops, pitching products backed by data.

Stephanie Additon, CEO
JAVA Skin Care

Growing a business can be stressful and lonely at times. For over a year now, Dashmap has provided me with extremely valuable business support. Any time I face a difficult question, I can count on my coach to dissect the issue, provide new insights and help me make the right decisions.

Nicolas Jacobeus, Owner
Belighted

Many firms claim to hold the key to grow local shops' profits. They all sound good on paper but don’t work in practice because they fail to understand our day-to-day constraints. Dashmap gets it. I used to be pulled in so many directions but Dashmap put me back in control to only focus on what works.

Line Daems, Owner
Kreatelier - A Fabric Concept Store

Dashmap analytical capabilities alone are a game changer. Every time we meet, I see the path more clearly, whether by challenging my thinking or simply by confirming I'm on the right track. But their ability to listen and adapt to our changing needs is what makes our partnership so special and valuable.

Who we help

We help independent businesses that bring healthy and eco-friendly experiences to our world. Because when they grow, we all benefit.

Retail Shops

Retail Shops

Retail shops have a huge responsibility when it comes to bringing us the best possible products. Unfortunately, product quality is not enough. We help shop owners find paths to profit hidden in their inventory and sales data.

Service Shops

Service Shops

The demands of clients who are used to the e-commerce environment are redefining what service means today. Service providers are under constant pressure. We help increase resource utilization and client value.

Product Brands

Product Brands

A better world starts with the creation of great products. But in fast-moving global markets, knowing what to create when is not easy. We help product brands use their production and distribution data to grow their business.

How we help

We understand your day-to-day reality of limited time and cash. Our program has been built to prioritize the most cost-effective, impactful activities.

Growth PLANNER

We compile goals, resources, activities, results and benchmarking data to identify your most important growth drivers. Next, we develop and help implement a detailed action plan to reach your goals.

Results TRACKER

The performance of your plan, good or bad, results from your activities: some are profit drivers and others are loss drivers. We build interactive dashboards to show you which are which and why.

Progress REVIEW

Analysis of your results tracker helps maximize the effectiveness of your growth planner. By rigorously reviewing the impact of each initiative, we can identify which ones to keep, fix or cancel.

Vision & Mission

We see great value in shopping choices. Now, consumer shopping is split between two polarized yet complementary models: 1) convenient commodities, led by online and big box stores, and 2) specialty experiences, led by local independent shops and brands. We expect this divide will continue to grow. We want to live in a world where hard-working independent shop and brand owners get their fair share of the value they bring to their communities, and where people who are passionate about helping them can do so as part of a highly rewarding job.

 

Our mission is to provide independent shop and brand owners with a cost-effective, affordable way to achieve their goals. We do this via a continuous process of: 1) developing a plan, 2) measuring results, and 3) reviewing impact. Our local, fully-trained coaches guide owners in their communities along this journey to success. This approach relies on data – collection, visualization and analysis – and best practices to always ensure independent shop and brand owner’s limited resources are focused on the most impactful and cost-effective activities.
