Today’s world is complex, connected, confusing, and full of risks. From human trafficking to climate change, gender-based violence to food insecurity, organisations doing business and delivering impact still struggle to get a grip on the range of issues and risks across the human and natural environment.
Without a strong data-driven evidence basis, organisations struggle to make good decisions, gain buy-in from partners, communicate with internal and external audiences, execute effective change in the real world, and see how the situation is changing over time.
While information, data, reporting, and response pressures increase almost unendingly, time and resources do not. The volume of information increases exponentially, but most organisations’ data processing capabilities remain linear. Staff have less time to dig through more noise, meaning a longer Time To Knowledge (TTK), delayed decisions, and greater downstream costs. Something has to change.
Building tech is one thing; building the right tech is something else. Leveraging subject expertise into technical development is critical for ensuring that data-driven tools deliver meaningful insights that users can actually use in real-world contexts. That’s why our subject experts sit at the heart of Honeycomb’s development team. We call this sociotechnical development. Read more here.

Sustainable, accountable, and responsible business practices are no longer “nice to haves”. They’re now “must haves” that can seriously affect a company’s bottom line. But monitoring, assessing, and improving against ESG objectives remains a daunting task. Honeycomb helps address this challenge by integrating quantitative and qualitative ESG data across themes and risk areas, supporting a holistic data-driven ESG picture including risks, hotspots, and trends.
In particular, many companies still fail to make full use of qualitative (text) data (also called unstructured data). Honeycomb’s natural language processing (NLP) tools can process your text data to extract value ESG insights from supplier audits, interview transcripts, site observation notes, worker interviews and other sources. This unstructured data is used invaluable for understanding the full spectrum of risks at play and bolstering your ESG risk management strategy.
Public sector and third sector organisations trying to prevent human trafficking face multiple challenges in managing the sheer volume of information they receive. Crime reports, case notes, victim stories, interviews, investigation materials, safeguarding files… organisations are often at max capacity running daily operations, with little time left for processing all this vital data.
Honeycomb can help overcome these challenges. Leveraging advance NLP tools, Honeycomb massively reduces the time spent on research and analysis tasks, pulling out key themes, trends, hotspots, needs, and other critical insights. With less time spend processing information, staff get more time to focus on their core mission of protecting vulnerable individuals and ensuring safety and security in their communities.
Charities, NGOs, and other civil society organisations (CSOs) all understand the importance of using data to inform policy change and enhance their advocacy work. But sifting and analysing large amounts of information – and presenting insights in a compelling way – takes a lot of time and resources. This piles on the pressure and limits capacity for stakeholder engagement, advocacy, lobbying, and communications.
From analysing narratives and lived experiences, to integrating survivors’ voices and victim stories into policy development, Honeycomb helps organisations get to grips with this critical data and find the insights that matter most. With Honeycomb, organisations bring the power of data directly into reports, briefings, presentations, and webpages to create advocacy materials and calls-to-action that can drive powerful policy change.
