Excellent Marketing Dashboard for Small Business

2016-02-09

We pull in a variety of data from sources like Google Analytics, MailChimp, social channels, and ecommerce platforms to easily track our progress on the metrics that matter most to our business.

Pros

Lots of integrations from the services that matter most to us, fantastic drag and drop UI, easy onboarding experience, relatively low cost, nice "at-a-glance" reporting for KPIs, enthusiastic and friendly support staff

Cons

Doesn't directly integrate to Amazon Seller Central (for 3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon), may take some time to set up (especially for less technical users), but this is true for any dashboard with multiple integrations (and Geckoboard makes this as easy as possible).

A cool looking dashboard creator

2021-02-15

Mostly good.

Pros

Another positive thing is how the Geckoboard Team constantly adds new data sources to increase compatibility.

Cons

When I was using it, the integration with Google Analytics was relatively limited, unfortunately, I needed to add a calculated metric on the dashboard and Geckoboard didn't allow me to do it.

Excellent for TV dashboards

2019-10-16

Overall if you are looking for a way to get metrics on a TV to drive team performance, this is perfect.

Pros

If you have basic knowledge of data, you will be able to get metrics and dashboards created easily.

Cons

There aren't many options for working with your data but that's to be expected here.

Great dashboard tool!

2015-11-07

Not to mention the improvement the dashboard has brought to our operations by focusing us on our key numbers in real time and having them available on the office wall and wherever our team is located around the world.

Pros

Gecko was extremely easy to get set up on and start seeing real data immediately.

Cons

Most of the integrations are very easy to set up but you do need some developer time to pull internal data, which shouldn't really come as a surprise.

Expensive, but good tool

2018-09-11

Geckoboard makes your data pretty and can be put on a screen.

Pros

The dashboard has the features that are needed, and it even has a pre-made set of graphics that you can use to visualize your data.

Cons

Mixpanel and other similar data tools have similar dashboards, which are agree not at pretty as Geckoboard, but they have the same functionality.

Great for Tracking Weekly and Quarterly Sales

2020-11-25

We have been displaying our daily and weekly sales data.

Pros

We are able to customize our salesforce reports and display the reports on our screens throughout the hospital.

Cons

Sometimes there is a bit of a lag between refreshes on the data on the board but I dont think its too sizeable.

Chat-based customer support second to none - friendly and inviting app

2018-01-26

Stellar customer support, easy to use user interface, a lot of support for 3rd party analytics apps.

Pros

I feel like there is a good reason to reach out to the customer support team and ask for features, as they seem open to them - this is not a company run by shark-like salesmen/saleswomen, but a developer-led company - where things that are difficult to do are eventually made easier to accomplish, and so on.

Cons

One thing maybe is that I'm not able to "park" a dashboard so that it's settings are kept safe even though I have downgraded from two dashboards to one dashboard.

easy quick visuals

2017-10-12

Pros

enables the wider business to see web metrics as an easy to use dashboard.

Cons

Could integrtrae a little more with other tools but still allows csv or txt imports, not yet found an API to do it seamlessly and as "live" as everything else.

Make beautiful and super functional dashboards with Geckoboard

2018-11-13

Displaying ONLY the data we want to display from google sheets to make it simple for our warehouse and production team to see critical stats.

Pros

We use a data tool which is capable of creating very power dashboards and while we utilize that tool for many things, we needed a tool which would be simple enough for other departments to build dashboards themselves.

Cons

Like many things, Geckoboard can be a bit of a learning curve when importing data from excel or google sheets.

Great tool that's easy to use

2019-02-05

Pros

Geckoboard was extremely easy to set up and can display many different dashboards to help understand the metrics you're looking to report on.

Cons

The only thing we've had issues with at times is the dashboard losing connection or not reflecting correctly.

Intuitive Dashboards

2018-09-10

Pros

Awesome design and even persons with basic IT skills can use this software, can interface with a lot of third-party apps and east to customise charts

Cons

I would have loved if the dashboards had drill down metrics. This way you can see some cause and effect or at least some relationships between key metirics

Enabling a data driven culture!

2015-11-06

For example around the customer service team we display metrics from ZenDesk (customer service), Salesforce (sales / implementations), Basecamp (current implementations) and New Relic (application health).

Pros

- Ease of use to setup the dashboards. Basically point and click

Cons

Sometimes you add a Widget but you don't really know what parameters are used to pull the data behind the scenes

Great for simple dashboards, poor customization

2018-11-26

Pros

I liked the amount of connectors readily available, it was easy to set up a simple dashboard quickly.

As soon as you want to get more complex with what data to present and it what format, it falls short.

AWESOME DASHBOARD!!!

2018-05-17

Pros

The easy of use...I literally created a fully capable dashboard showing all of our contact center data in less than 30 min.

Cons

Also, when using the 'custom widget' feature, I did see some "loading failed" errors, which is odd since its pulling data from the app its linked to.

You get a dashboard! YOU get a dashboard!

2019-07-18

Pros

Who doesn't love dashboards? We were able to take our Zendesk data and showcase our customer service stats using Geckoboard.

Cons

It's kind of confusing to use at first and doesn't always pull in all of the data, but with a little elbow grease (not really) we were able to get it to work for us.

Pros

Setting up Geckoboard is super easy, within a few minutes i had all the KPI's I needed and it connects seamlessly to my data sources.

Some of the charts and tables lack customization, the font size can't be changed and some of the charts are just too simple to be of any use.

5-minute setup, but needs more filters

2018-11-20

If you have TVs or monitors on your wall, you've already made an investment to get data in front of your team.

Pros

Geckoboard provided a very easy and fast way to get our data set up.

Cons

You're limited to pre-determined fields of data that you an display without much editing (e.g. you can only display data points that Geckoboard has set up).
