How it works - Your Dashboards in 10 Days

FAQs

We create live reporting dashboards showing the most important leading indicators for your business.

Complete control with one dash. No more flipping between reports in different apps. If something goes wrong, you can see it immediately. Plus you know instantly how far off you are from making your targets.   

 

And if you want to see the data behind a KPI or graph? Just click on it.

You tell us your business goals and KPIs, then we find out which applications produce the leading indicators and connect them (with a little database magic) to a single dashboard to rule your business.

  • Business owners who want to monitor business performance (financial, operational, sales, marketing…).
  • Managers who want to see key metrics in their business, and review the data associated with those metrics.
  • Sales staff who want to see their performance vs budget, KPIs, and analyse their own sales.
  • Businesses who want to show their staff data from multiple systems in a central location eg. a mounted display
  • Suppliers who want to share data with favourite customers or with sales agents
  • Users who need to see extra reporting on their existing apps (eg. calculate commissions on sales from your inventory app)

Creating a reporting dashboard first involves plumbing together streams of data from your mission-critical applications. This setup can be relatively simple or quite complex. We charge a setup fee for this work. 

Once we have finished the plumbing and designed the dashboard, we need to maintain the connections between the apps and store the data using enterprise-grade tools. We charge a monthly fee for these costs.

The setup fee covers: 

  • interpreting your business goals into KPIs
  • analysis of your reporting requirements
  • development of data pipes (using APIs) 
  • and configuration of your reports.

Your monthly fee covers:

  • hosting the processes that regularly fetch data from your apps or other data sources 
  • hosting of your data
  • user licences for the reporting platform
  • our service monitoring
  • and minor changes that are not dependent on you, like security updates or API updates.

We work on fixed fees so that there are no nasty surprises. Our typical fees are:

  • Setup: $2,000 (ex. GST)
  • Monthly: $150 (ex. GST)

Particularly complex projects (eg. Integrating with non-API or with custom-built applications) may increase the one-off setup fee.

 

There is no contracted duration for your monthly fee. You can stop at any time.

We create most dashboards in two to four weeks, from initial consultation and analysis to go live.

The mechanics behind a reporting dashboard for multiple applications are much more complicated than just pulling up a P&L in your accounting software.

The data from each app needs to be collected daily (or more frequently) and stored in a single place (a data warehouse). If the interface between the app and the warehouse changes or breaks, the dashboard will stop working.

The reporting dashboard requires a combination of enterprise-grade tools to function. 

Your monthly fee covers:

  • hosting the processes that regularly fetch data from your apps or other data sources 
  • hosting of your data
  • user licences for the reporting platform
  • our service monitoring
  • and minor changes that are not dependent on you, like security updates or API updates.

Sure you can. Anyone can. This is what you will need:

  • Developer skills to gather data through APIs 
  • Database skills to build reports 
  • Dashboard skills to map out your KPIs

There is no magic. Just the right skills to get the job done well, and the time and mental capacity to make it happen.

Our customers tell us it is because, from the first conversation, we understand where your business is at, where you want to take it, and what you need to get there.

That’s the hard bit. The rest is easy.

Here are some more *really good* reasons:

  • We have an amazing team! A business analyst with expertise in inventory systems, a veteran tech journalist with extensive software contacts, red-hot developers (ex-eBay), degree-qualified administrators, and international coverage. 
  • We have proprietary, in-house tools to track all sorts of apps that you use in your business. There’s not much we don’t know.
  • It’s a fixed price project. No risk of overruns. 
  • No contract. When you want to stop just send us an email and we stop. No questions asked.

Also, we will share with you ideas from dashboards we’ve seen in other businesses and come up with ideas on how to make yours great.
