Turning data into immediate action

Traditional data platforms aren’t cut out for rapid decision-making. They take hefty infrastructure, technical talent, and rigorous process just to squeeze out a single insight.

Scoop is the only data platform that lets you immediately combine and explore data from absolutely anywhere, so you can take action without delay.

Before launching Scoop, founders Brad Peters and Gabriel Jakobson spent decades building some of the world's most widely used data platforms. Yet, no matter how much they innovated, they realized that there was a limit to what people could achieve with their products.

That’s because data platforms today are built mainly for technical users. They rely on complex infrastructure and slow, drawn-out processes to get data ready for the business.

The average business has pockets of data scattered across dozens of tools and applications. Combining it all for analysis can be a daunting task — one that requires engineers, data analysts, and a full stack of tools to transport, store, and prep data.

But today’s business landscape moves at breakneck speed. Decisions, large and small, need to happen by the minute and people don’t have the time or resources to invest in traditional data platforms.

Typically, this is where spreadsheets come in. They’re straightforward, accessible, and great for quick and dirty analysis. Still, even spreadsheets have hard limitations. Anything you do in a spreadsheet is throwaway work; it cannot be scaled or repurposed.

With data platforms being too complex and spreadsheets being too inefficient, it’s no wonder why businesses struggle to put data behind their day-to-day decisions.

is an
unprecedented solution

We built Scoop to be the first data platform of its kind. Designed entirely for business users, Scoop lets you immediately work with any data in your business using only the spreadsheet skills you already have.

We believe that everyone from the lines of business to the CEO should have the ability to solve problems as they arise with the most complete and up-to-date data available. So we did away with outdated data architecture and replaced it with a fundamentally different solution.

Scoop makes it possible to fetch data from any application in your business. No exceptions. You won't find any "approved" lists of pre-built connectors or custom APIs. Any data across your organization can come together to fuel faster decisions.

But collecting your data is only the beginning. You need to be able to ask meaningful questions like "What's the root cause of this problem?" and "What would happen if that scenario were true?" That's why we've baked your entire data workflow into Scoop, starting with the spreadsheet manipulation you already do.

In Scoop, the spreadsheet sits at the heart of your workflow, allowing you to build centralized datasets that fuel visualizations and dynamic data stories. Whether you need to uncover quick answers or deliver presentation-ready narratives, we’re making it possible to move at the speed of your business.
