Turn Data into Improved Business Results

Numerical Insights LLC

We turn data into improved business results

Numerical Insights LLC formed in 2013 when its president, Tracey Smith, decided to use her passion for data, mathematics and analytics to help other owners improve their business, improve profit and understand their workforce. Teaming up with experts in IT, mathematics, data visualization and statistics, Numerical Insights has helped many well-known and little-known companies use data to solve challenges and improve business performance.

Numerical Insights works with businesses to analyze product data, customer data, supply chain data and HR data. We also offer on-site and online classes to teach professionals and business owners how to use data analysis to improve profit, improve cash flow, assess drivers of safety incidents and improving the diversity and equity of the workforce.






I worked with Tracey on a workforce analysis project for our global Adidas Group HQ locations. I had read her book on Strategic Workforce Planning and knew that she would bring a wealth of practical experience and subject matter expertise to what we were trying to achieve. Tracey is HIGHLY reliable, academically sound in her methodology, a master in her field, extremely fast in turning things around and most importantly for us – pragmatic and flexible in her approach. She also offered insights and recommendations that went beyond the agreed project scope which I highly appreciated. I truly enjoyed working with her and recommend her wholeheartedly as a business partner. Insights has been invaluable to two of our projects now. Her ability has been to identify what we needed and then complete that on-time with great precision and accuracy. A joy to work with, and highly recommended.
