BIME Features In Depth

Plug-and-play connectors

Plug-and-play connectors serve as the backbone of BIME’s platform. BIME by Zendesk offers more than 65 of these connectors. Connectors make it possible for users to connect the data from disparate applications.

As soon as you’ve started using BIME, you’ll want to start connecting data from business apps like Salesforce and Google Analytics, social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, various flat files, and data warehouse solutions like Redshift and BigQuery, among many, many others.

Customizable metrics

BIME transforms data into metrics and KPIs. Not just any metrics and KPIs, but those that add value and meaning to an organization. Users have the ability to make basic calculations within BIME. They can also create their own custom metrics without relying on SQL.

BIME is designed for both technical and non-technical users, which means anyone within your organization should be able to use the platform. Start joining data sets with other members of your team based on the data you’re seeing generated within the applications your company uses. The possibilities are endless, since the specific visualizations and dashboards you generate will be based on the unique combination of connectors that your team is using.

Data visualization

The key to making data useful is choosing the right way to display it. Visualizations bring data to life, and they tell stories in ways that raw numbers cannot. BIME gives users more than 25 visualization types to choose from. Combined with 65+ plug-and-play connectors and customizable metrics, there’s an unlimited number of ways that organizations can bring their data to life.

Scroll through some of BIME’s data visualization examples, and you’ll get a clearer picture of all that is possible with the platform. Impactful charts, detailed graphs, and interactive dashboards will all serve as tools for you to showcase the results of your efforts. BIME’s data visualization tools are all point-and-click, which means you can create the most detailed charts without any prior technical experience necessary.

Team collaboration

Once data has been broken out of its silo, it needs to be shared. BIME provides its users with a number of sharing and collaboration features. Dashboards can be distributed amongst team members, outside consultants, and customers. Users can also share dashboards and charts with links, and they can embed them on their websites and blogs. BIME enables users to schedule email reports and dashboards to deliver straight to the inbox, which is a useful way to stay on top of data with minimal effort. KPI alerts can also be setup to trigger emails and notifications into channels such as Slack and Flowdock.

When you’ve taken the time to generate insightful dashboards and make meaning out of your organization’s data, you’ll want to share the news. BIME offers collaboration features meant to improve the customer experience and boost internal operations. You can also drive more meaningful engagement with your customers by posting your visualizations publicly on the web.

Easy Use

2014-04-22

I've always found that basic analytics tools are handy, but will only show you so much and most of the data isn't needed.

Basic functionality and nothing more

2018-01-02

Not worth the time investment - use your time wisely and implement a better BI tool.

Pros

It gets the job done, I guess. Visualizations come out pretty nicely, although it takes a LOT more work than it should to set it up.

Cons

It's basic, and good for making dashboards that NO ONE touches, but not very good as a BI tool in my opinion.

I would use BIME again

2018-11-12

If you are stuck in the ice ages of excel reports and lots of copy paste then i definitely recommend.

Pros

The more time analysts spend building reports the worse off your team will be in the long run.

Cons

The integrations were tricky and we had a lot of sources to include.

BIME is a BI producto with the right focus on how easy BI should be.

2017-05-16

Solved my dashboard needs... published information to several types of users and they can interact with their information very easily.

Pros

Very nice visualizations (charts), very intuitive, elegant simple approach to BI.

Cons

There are a few features that need to mature a little bit. There are other products that offer lower pricing than BIME.
