Learn how to navigate the insights generated by the OnlyBoth® Benchmarking Engine.


Insights are accessed using unique URLs assigned by OnlyBoth®. All insights are delivered through a secure web connection using a web-based application, and require users to login using previously assigned credentials.


Click on one of the core benchmarking questions.

Each question's label and presentation order is configured by OnlyBoth® for each application.


The Benchmarking Engine compares the selected target to all peers, discovers insights, and writes these up in perfect English.

The insights are shown as a list of excerpts, like search engines do. A user then examines a result by clicking on it.

Group Analytics

The "Query across ..." button lets users formulate criteria for matching entities (e.g. customers) and/or insights. It then returns the top matches ranked by noteworthiness.

Clicking the "Query across..." button shows the query format, consisting of dropdown options to choose from.

Group Analytics - Data Table

In some applications, the Data Table reports various statistics on all the numeric attributes, for some fixed subgroups.

Filter the data table by choosing the specific attributes (rows) and statistics (columns) of interest to you. You can also download the visible data table as a CSV file.


Some insights are visualized to provide a complementary picture.

The visual form depends on the type of insight and any need for data confidentiality. For example, on public data, an insight with a single numeric attribute will be visualized with a histogram, and an insight with two numeric attributes will be shown as a scatter plot.


This lists peers, anonymously if needed, that are close to the selected target within the reported peer group, and also reports the number of missing values within that peer group.


This might show recommended actions, triggered by the details of the insight, that are contributed by our clients or partners.


If available, this cites the source of the raw data analyzed within the insight, and may explain further the background of the data attributes and any transformations done to the raw data.


This summarizes what the engine knows about the selected target.

Best in Class

Choose metrics to see the best achievement among the peers most similar to the selected target, or see if the target itself is the best. The need for peer anonymity may constrain what is shown.

After applying the chosen metrics, explore the "Best in Class" insights in the usual way.

Similar Peers

This lists the selected target's most-similar peers, which are reference class for the best-in-class.

Now What?

In some applications, see recommended actions based on the current benchmarking insight.

Share Insights

Share the insight by email with someone else.

Clicking "Share Insight" launches a dialog that lets users customize the message sent out by the application.


Generate a print-friendly report for this insight.


Send feedback about an individual insight.

Print Report

In some applications, this generates an entire PDF report on the selected target.


Step through the successive answers to the benchmarking question for the selected target. The results are ranked by noteworthiness.

Group Navigation

Step through the successive answers to the benchmarking question for your group query. The results are ranked by noteworthiness.

Filters > Attributes

Filter the insights based on your specific interests.

Click "select attributes" to filter the list of available attributes.

Filters > Judgments

Filter the insights based on specific value judgments of good, bad, ambivalent, or neutral.

Click "select judgments" to filter the list of available value judgments.

Filters > Entities

Filter the insights based on specific entities (e.g., customer names) that interest you.

Click "select [entities]" to filter the list of available entities (e.g. customers).

Most-Similar Navigation

By default, the engine compares a selected target to everybody. Click on "most-similar peers" to compare instead to a smaller number of highly similar peers.


View the peers most similar to the benchmarked target.


Along many dimensions, these diagrams plot the selected target against its most-similar peers and their mean.

Start typing an entity name and then click on an auto-complete option.
