Likelihood to Recommend

9 Spokes

Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Dundas BI

Dundas BI is a tool that every business should have. Having the ability to quickly and easily visualize data is something that was mostly a dream a few years ago. Today Dundas BI has made it a reality. As long as you know the data you need, you can quickly bring it from boring numbers to pretty colors, charts, and gauges that even top level executives can understand.

Cons

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • More code examples and up-to-date code libraries.
  • Webinars that do not just occur at times that suit an EST audience.

Support

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

These other products tend to do quite a poor job of allowing you to embed them into other products. Either the architecture is not suited to embedding or they make it too expensive to do this. Dundas is designed and priced to do this (embedding) well. We found Dundas comparatively easier to use.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

Dundas offers many ways to push dashboards and reports to users. These include standard web-based dashboards and export of PDF, PowerPoint, etc. Notifications can also be scheduled. Users can collaborate with notes on reports/dashboards to ask/answer questions. It's also offers the ability to include non-data driven content (e.g. images and text content) to dashboards so all types of reporting can be displayed on a dashboard.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

Dundas offers multiple methods of bringing external data in and refreshing it. Pre-build connectors are available for popular Web-based applications such as Salesforce.com and Google Analytics. It also supports all major databases and import of file-based data, OLAP, and ODBC. We have not come across anything we can't connect to Dundas.
