Simplicity, sources interface, support, the versatility of the visualization work area

Great system in theory, just hard to set up the way I'd wanted.

2019-03-01

They were helpful, although it would've been great to have more support for setting up my page / dashboard. I wasn't able to get my page and inputs set up the way I had hoped.

Pros

It is a very robust system, great for tracking analytics and having a visual display of them.

Cons

It would be nice to have your centralized dashboard and keep everything in that.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Plecto.

We love to hear your feedback - and the part about the challenges actually helps us understand how to further develop the product, to better fit your needs.

I can also disclose, that we'll be launching a new onboarding flow in the coming days, which will include pre-defined formulas and a more user friendly interface for new users - to improve the onboarding process, and to help new users get familiar with the product even faster.

Have a great day :)

Great tools for Dashboard - share figures to wider audience

2019-12-02

Great tool to get rid of Excel dashboard. Enhance the visibility.

Pros

Diversity of sources (SDFC, Podio,...

Cons

No workspace feature - being able to group information by workspace Table reports - no possibility to establish your period - no group calculation period (Quarter - Year) Formulas - when too many, no folder are exisiting to organize them, so you need to be careful in your naming convention if you want to find quickly what you are looking for.

Great way to keep track

2019-12-19

Pros

The intuitive dashboard and multiple dataintegrations, enables you to track valueable KPI's with ease

Cons

Making it more open-source, letting the user's create more different kind of competitions would help us not using third party software / manual entries for these competitions.

Once we changed to Plecto, we never looked back

2018-09-25

The support were on hand via video chat and text chat when we ran into difficulty and gave us free training sessions which was great. It's far better for gamification in a sales office than some competitors

Pros

Really good functionality and ability to integrate to our CRM (HubSpot). Live data and deals notifications Very customisable and flexible for our business needs (tracking sales visually)

Cons

It's complicated when you first start as it's code based and really takes some learning

Hi James,
Thank you very much for the positive review. We're glad to hear that Plecto is a good tool for your company. In regards to the onboarding; we're currently working on launching a simpler version, so that it will become much easier for new (not techsavvy) users to get going with the platform.

Thank you for taking the time to review our product :)

Have a great day.

Worth the investment!

2020-10-22

Pros

We chose Plecto to build our dashboards because of the easy setup and the interactive integrations they offered.

Cons

I wish there were more options with regards to the designs of certain widget types, such as displaying the values above each bar chart or adjusting the size of particular texts. Though I guess their simplicity is also their strength.

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for the amazing review! I will make sure our Support and Onboarding team gets these kind words sent their way.

As you mention, when you get to know the structure of how you build your formulas, everything will make sense. The formula-editor is unique and is able to filter on almost anything based on your data, which is how we make sure that all data is tailored for your companies needs.

I am also happy to know that you chose us based on the integrations. We keep adding integrations every month as we think connecting integrations easily is crucial for all our clients.

I will note your request to look into our designs of widgets in Plecto as we always want to enhance the user experience.


Thank you for taking the time to review

Plecto enables your visibility!

2019-12-06

Pros

At our company only our sales team cared about the results, this made everyone in the company have complete visibility of any important metric that we have, this made our teams realize the importance of following our metrics and not just seeing their own personal metrics.

Cons

The way they charge per user for us makes it difficult because it's not based on Account Users, but how many people you show on the graphs inside plecto, since we have a big team this skyrocketed the pricing.

Great Software

2019-12-19

Pros

Slide decks, music etc and up to date information make it easy for everyone to see how they are doing.

Cons

To Americanised, would be good to have dates in UK format, so to save confusion, Equally our periods don't run to month end, so we constantly have to change dates each month which is a 30 minute job, if not longer. This leads to poor adoption across other teams. Making edits and setting up new fields to view could be more intuitive for managers to make quick instant changes rather than asking our admin to do this.
