Cyfe Features In Depth

Unified Monitoring

Keeping your finger on the “pulse of the organization” is a time-consuming exercise, particularly if you’re using several different solutions to make sense of the data at your fingertips. Cyfe unifies scattered data from various monitoring applications in one location. This means data from social networks, email marketing software, IT web monitors, keyword ranking solutions, website analytics tools, and online financial systems, among others, is added in one central hub that you can access anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Aside from significantly reducing the time and effort you’ll otherwise spend to check multiple tools, keeping all your monitoring systems in one dashboard allows you to see big-picture scenarios at a glance. For example, alongside a summary of your web traffic stats and keyword ranking, an update on the status of your account payables is visible, so are your Facebook page’s engagement stats, and how many new signups your recent newsletter generated.

Also, Cyfe’s push API, which is a REST API, allows you to push into Cyfe the data from the software solutions you already use, whether homegrown or from outside providers.

Dashboard Sharing

Cyfe dashboards can be shared in three ways: through the users’ Cyfe accounts, public URLs, and scheduled reports. Cyfe Premium allows you to invite an unlimited number of users into the platform. Using their own separate logins, you can grant them admin access or read-only permissions to your various data dashboards. Public URLs, on the other hand, are used to share data with people without Cyfe accounts. Dashboards shared via public URLs are read-only, can be password-protected and embedded into any application.

Using Cyfe’s export dashboard feature, automated emails containing dashboard reports can be sent to specific recipients on an ongoing basis – monthly, weekly, or daily. Individual widgets and entire dashboards can be exported in several formats: CSV, PNG, JPEG, and PDF.

TV Mode

Most data-centric organizations display business data in prominent workplace locations. Aside from everyone sharing in the monitoring of trends and abnormalities, the practice can spark data-driven conversations among colleagues, which can turn into “eureka” moments benefitting the entire organization.

Cyfe’s responsive TV mode functionality works well with any Internet-enabled TV with a built-in browser. It lets users show their dashboards on any monitor, and Cyfe automatically adjusts your screen view to fit the size of your TV. Once set up, log in to Cyfe and enable the TV mode feature. You will then be asked to select which dashboards to show, including their rotation frequency, e.g., every 30 seconds.

Historical Data

For IT teams and network administrators, historical data coupled with real-time data let them establish trends and make accurate forecasts, a feature especially handy when planning for future capacity requirements. SEO professionals and content marketers also value historical data, as this allows them to pinpoint which campaigns work and which don’t, and how best to remedy the latter.

Cyfe archives data that’s beyond 30 days, and using date range selections, historical data can be retrieved on demand.

Customizations

Cyfe lets you customize your dashboards in many ways. From the background color to the values included in your custom widgets, the app provides a range of customization features. Your company’s colors and logo can be used for branding consistency across the platform, and your Cyfe account can be personalized to include your website’s domain name.

For custom visualizations, chart widgets can be configured using the push API. If you choose to offer Cyfe as a white-label addon to your core services, branded reports can be generated for your clients.

Connects with a lot of systems, but reporting is inflexible

2018-09-12

Pros

Can easily connect to multiple systems such as Xero, Google Analytics and Facebook.

Cons

My main reason for using the system was to monitor financial performance data that is captured in Xero.

Fantastic customer service, easy to use, super helpful tool for analytics.

Pros

Saves me hours of searching for analytics on different platforms.

Cons

It's constrained by the limitations of the API... for example, Pinterest analytics are super thorough on the Pinterest plaform, but Cyfe can only pull in basic data.

Perfect for quickly putting together an investor dashboard!

2019-10-09

I was able to set up individual dashboards for investors within Cyfe, with fine-grained control over the metrics shown.

Pros

Getting started is easy, and I had my first dashboard set up within minutes using the built-in Google Analytics integration.

Cons

Cyfe provides a number of built-in integrations from common data sources, but this list could have been more extensive.

Great Dashboard Tool for All-in-One view

2018-10-16

Pros

We build one for each client and track Analytics traffic info, Facebook stats, Ad Spend, and more.

Mainly that if a particular third party app isn't supported there's not much you can do to bring that into the mix.

A Very Easy to Use Dashboard Monitoring Tool

2019-07-19

We wanted a dashboard for our different metrics and stumbled upon Cyfe.

Pros

If you work in google sheets, you can import data into Cyfe and if your developers know how to use the PUSH API you can set up customized data. 5.

Cons

The cost is not that bad but for $29/month you can get an additional 2 users if you signed up for Klipfolio, however Cyfe’s defense is that data is in real time where as Klipfolio has a 4 hour delay.

Pros

It also allows to show statistics in real time of each process.

Cyfe does not have a sufficient self-service portal, and does not have a good sales intelligence system.

2018-06-14

Pros

I used free Cyfe for a few years, it's actually don't limit you as a personal dashboard for CEO.

Cons

It could be a more integrations and more options, we're mainly show there Google Analytics and sales data, Integration with more development tools like GitHub or Circle CI would be great.

Easy to Use Dashboard Software

2019-04-22

Pros

Many of the integrations are very deep, and allow real-time reporting on measures that are critical to our business.

Cons

It creates a bit more manual work on our part to update those statistics weekly/monthly, but at least we can still graphically see all of our data in one place.

Cyfe is the best customizable dashboard tool I have come across, and that's saying something.

2018-04-20

It's time saving and distraction-less in terms of getting to see all of my data visualizations in one place, rather than logging into Google analytics/search console, email, Mailchimp, etc.

Pros

It's very customizable in terms of layout, theme, etc.

Cons

I wish that there was a repository of templates for users to refer to for ideas and inspiration, sort of like what is available in Trello or Airtable, but I realize that some users' private data would need to be restricted somehow, so this could be a reason why that isn't the case currently.

Only limited by the APIs it connects to

2016-11-03

The only limitations I've experienced have been when a social media platform changes its API connections.

Pros

HUGE number of potential connections and limitless board options

Cons

Limited reports for some connections (based on API opportunities).

Its really Good

2018-10-19

They have a good base to continue improving this software, they have positive points such as the report and the monitoring is easy to use.

Pros

Provides a good workflow when managing your business, reports in real time, has good features such as widgets to handle everything in a more efficient way.

Cons

The fact of not being able to control the graphics tends to hang on occasions and that is a very negative feature in the software.

Great software but needs improvement

2019-12-06

It is a great idea, and the customizable dashboard is great but I feel that it could definitely use some improvements.

Pros

It's nice to be able to see every platform in one spot and it makes searching for information a lot easier. We keep a separate spreadsheet and update it manually each week based on information collected from Cyfe.

Cons

The Instagram widget is very glitchy, and every time you reset your password for your Instagram account, the Cyfe data erases and resets (hence why we keep a manual record of everything).

Looking at all of these metrics on once screen make it easier to see trends and make decisions based on those trends.

Pros

We were able to create a dashboard in 30 minutes that gives us an overview of our many metrics.

We have not started on pulling in the custom excel pivot table reports so we look forward to testing these out.

Swiss army knife analytics app for social and beyond

2018-02-28

This platform helped us tie together a lot of our different social networks and create customized reporting on them.

Pros

Cyfe is pretty much just analytics, but it's great at it.

Cons

Not all of the integrations work smoothly right off the bat, and in some cases I found that the numbers reported didn't show what I expected.

Great way to make custom roll up reports and statistics for clients

2019-03-19

It was great, we used this tool to set up dashboards for a large property management company.

Pros

You have the ability to customize it for each client with the use of dashboards to show the KPI's and statistics that matter to them most.

Cons

This was most likely due to needing a developer to set up tag manager, google analytics and goals/conversions in the first place.
