Using the combined ORDS data, we hope to expand upon the insights produced by individual ORA members, to incorporate data from across repair networks.
We also want the wider community to be able to engage in this analysis – the ORDS datasets are open and downloadable. If you have found something interesting in the data, please get in touch. We can also provide tool support to analyse the data.

Tool support for visualisation and analysis
Using tools such as Metabase and Google Data Studio, we can produce statistics and visualisations from the ORDS data. Below are some example statistics that can be produced with these tools. If you’d like to discuss how to use these tools on ORDS data, get in touch. You can of course use the raw data with any tool of your choice.
Note: the below visualisations are using a working set of product categories – the exact set of categories to be used in ORDS is still under discussion. The visualisations include data not yet available on the aggregate download.
