Solid BI Dashboard Solution

2019-01-30

It's been great to build out the dashboards that we need to see what's working in real-time so we can make smart, data-backed decisions, in real-time.

Pros

As a marketer who tends to geek out on performance data, it's been great to have a solid dashboard solution that allows me to connect multiple data sources, aggregate all the data and slice and dice to create visual charts, graphs and tables that paint a clear picture of how our marketing initiatives are performing.

Cons

But the Grow team has continually made improvements to these systems, which have dramatically improved the metric/dashboard building experience.

Not for those wanting to really look into their data

2017-07-18

We've been able to get important data, from multiple sources, into the faces of our managers every 5 minutes (that's the least amount of time between data updates).

Pros

Making the dashboards look good is fairly simple.

Cons

Updating a dashboard can take 2 minutes at times.

Brilliant Self-Service BI for SMB's

2018-10-01

The ability to quickly build metrics has been key for us to go from question to answer and allowed us to use Grow to answer questions that would have previously required too much work to justify the effort.

Pros

They've achieved an excellent balance between ease-of-use and a robust feature set to deliver a product that can be used by data analysis and non-technical managers alike.

Cons

Grow excels in integrating with cloud based data sources but other tools may be required to pull in premises data.

Great looking, intuitive dashboard reports and business analytics

2018-03-09

Data insight, analytics, the ability to display business metrics visually!

Pros

The analytics we were able to obtain gave us insight into things we wouldn't have tracked prior to using Grow

Cons

Don't like that it's strictly for business and enterprise clients and they don't offer a paired-down version for individual consumers or entrepreneurs, etc.

Grow has made a massive difference in how our company tracks key metrics and makes decisions

2018-01-16

Better data analytics, better decision making, better communication.

Pros

Love how customizable it is, and our ability to view sorted groups of data visually in the same window/tab to make super informed decisions.

Cons

With so much data from so many sources sometimes it takes a bit to get it to feed right, but the customer support has been great.

Feedback

2019-08-09

We using grow to report on top level reports and using it for team leaders to be able to manage staff using information provided from dashboards.

Pros

That we connect to database using SSH and all other major data sources. Easy to set new dashboards up and share with team.

Cons

Depending on size of dashboard and connected/calculated data sources sometimes Grow is crashing and reports can not be accessed or updated.

Grow Dashboard

2019-08-08

This helps us model and predict future goals.

Pros

The charts, run rates, goal trends, and simplification of data presentation has streamlined our operation and made all of us extremely competitive!

Cons

It would be a nice addition to layer in some gamification. This may already exist and I am unaware of it.

Most Comprehension and Easy to Use Dashboard Platform!

2017-06-19

In turn, we are able to make adjustments 10x faster than when we had to manually pull reports and create visuals on a weekly/monthly basis.

Pros

It was extremly easy to learn how to setup the metrics and to integrate multiple data sources such as advertising spend versus customer data from Salesforce.

Cons

The only drawback I can think of is I would like to have more flexibility with customizing the visuals with the size of the fonts and having a few more options with the types of charts.

So far it has been wonderful using Grow. We have solved many reporting issues thanks to it!

2018-06-29

We solved many of the problems that arose from a lack of real-time, cross-channel reporting tool.

Pros

I like the ease with which direct integrations are made, and also the wide variety of third party providers with which Grow integrates directly.

Cons

I believe that the things that I like the most is the flexibility to modify graphs, fonts, font sizes, axes limits, and overall metric visualization. I think that Grow is a little plug-and-play in that sense but a bit more of freedom to modify metric visualization would be great.

Saves Time and Resources

2018-10-01

It has been great so far and we have only been using it for a couple of weeks. Customer support has been great. They are always willing to help you figure out how to build the metric you have in mind.

Pros

It allows us to pull data from multiple sources and generate reports that auto-update and are more accurate than relying on a person to interpret the data correctly.

Cons

Some of the APIs for certain platforms don't provide the data you are looking for.

Grow BI Dashboard

2018-07-31

Pros

And also the current data it shows for real-time monitoring

User-friendly tool

2018-10-01

Grow is a great tool to allow us to have real-time data shared with our clients.

Pros

This tool has expanded our decision-making capabilities in our small company in ways we could not have envisioned a year ago.

Cons

Some data integrations (namely Asana) don't play very nice so workarounds are needed.

great onboarding and simple integration

2019-07-26

While we have integrated most of the financial functions into one system, we still have a number of service systems that needed to be joined for executive reporting not involving spreadsheets.

Pros

Grow makes it easy to connect a ton of different data sources. The UI is quick to learn and easy to understand.

Cons

The integration with our CRM took quite a bit of effort to establish, however Grow has since simplified the integration.

Easy, attractive, great support

2018-08-31

I was able to set up dashboards without any onboarding which was great.

Pros

I am able to combine reports, design them, and show really any data I could possibly need.

Cons

Sometimes data moves around so I have to manually select the correct columns to report but the support for this issue was instant and has been solved.

2018-09-14

My overall experience has been really good. I have already recommended the software to one another contractor

Pros

We use it to import data from google sheets and our CRM called JobNimbus.

Cons

It takes some time to understand how to filter and sort the data but once you have it understood it’s easy to change and manipulate.

Great solution for SaaS oriented - BI, exploration enabled in days across 100's of sources

2018-10-29

Within 15 days of implementing we had over 100 metrics and 10's of dashboards - six months later the Grow and the discussion of metrics is everywhere - slack, email, online, on company dashboards, in the hands of our investors.

Pros

Ease: because 100's of the most common data sources are pre-integrated you can quickly get past the headache of secure access and onto the business of working with data.

Cons

If you want super advanced visualizations on par with the highest priced BI tools this isn't for you - this tool is rich but has made appropriate tradeoffs for the purpose of simplicity.

Great potential for BI, but didn't work for our company

2018-08-15

We used Grow for a while to better track BI for our business. Unfortunately, it took us a while to realize that the software would not work the way we needed it to with our database.

Pros

- Metric dashboards look great - Integration and linking with a variety of data sources, very robust -

Cons

- The user interface seemed very fragmented and hard to understand - Customer support wasn't as knowledgeable with our specific use case as we would have liked - Pricing was hard to swallow based on not being able to function as we needed it to.

Big Data Analytics. Small Business Pricing

2018-10-03

Tons of integrations, pre-built templates and resources to truly help you paint a picture out of data.

Pros

The pricing. Grow offers a competitive product to the giants like DOMO, Microstrategy and SAS, but doesn't crush you on pricing and can be built to scale from your start-up to your enterprise aspirations.

Cons

Data Manipulation and customization could be a bit easier and more robust..
