There are two key concepts at the heart of Structura: Data Collections and User-Run Reports.
Data Collections are how your data is stored, sorted, and made usable. By answering some simple questions as you import new data into Structura, you enable Structura to know what it’s dealing with—whether that’s a dollar amount, a date, or just a few lines of descriptive text—and present those fields to you in the appropriate context.
Reports are configured by a Structura administrator but can be run on demand by any user with the appropriate access. Reports pull points of data from multiple Collections, putting them in conversation and then showing users—well, you name it! Reports can be as simple or as complex as you need, showing organized lists of matters, generating charts and graphs, or calculating the results of complex formulas such as time to closure, expected settlement amounts, average costs, and much more. And since all your company’s data moves through Structura, reports are dynamic, changing as new information comes in.
All data that is imported into a Collection gets sorted into an appropriate Field. Fields are labels for groups of data that include a field name and a field type. Fields are also interrelated and points within a field can be linked to points within another field.
We understand that your data can be quite complex, which is why Collections can be divided into subsections, allowing for the greatest amount of legibility, findability, and organizational ease possible.
In every Collection, individual fields are grouped within Cards. Cards stack vertically and can contain as many or as few fields as you prefer, so that you can group fields in a way that makes sense for your organization.
Tabs are lateral subdivisions that organize data on the same level of importance. Cards are stacked within a single Tab to begin with but can be quickly moved or copied to new Tabs depending on the needs of the administrator and users.
Structura’s sharing options allow you to control the flow of information within your company. Teams can restrict or share their Collections, either hiding confidential data or pooling relevant data between departments and letting other teams incorporate it into their own reports. You can even wall off access to irrelevant or confidential subsections within a Collection, whether specific Cards, Tabs, or even Individual Fields. Alternatively, granting anonymized access to a Collection’s data lets teams make use of its statistical business intelligence while keeping sensitive data private.
Structura offers a variety of data hosting options ranging from shared tenancy and dedicated cloud hosting to on-premises hosting. And no matter what you choose, your data will always be secure and encrypted, whether at rest or in transit.
