Setting up reporting

One of the biggest reasons that companies do not renew contracts is that agencies and events do not provide enough tools to demonstrate the result of the investment. This is a missed opportunity for both parties. The initiative lies with the recipient of the funds to demonstrate that the promises made have been fulfilled. This also gives your sponsor the opportunity to defend the investment internally. That is precisely where the greatest threat to cooperation lies.

SKAUT has developed an evaluation and report framework with partners, supported by online tools. This framework provides you with the necessary figures, analyzes and conclusions that will enable you to justify the investment in the right way.
