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.

Pros

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.
  • Setting up the apps is a breeze when the platform supports them.

  • Simple to use and configure.
  • A good set of pre-built integrations to pull data back and summarise on a dashboard.
  • Excellent support! They actually respond when you ask them questions and are very thorough with their response.

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.

  • A bit more flexibility in the number of columns would be nice.
  • Ability to scale to mobile device (web).
  • App capabilities are missing on Android.

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.

The system was only used by a few people.

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.

Geckoboard is a great dashboard that offers value and simplicity. It is easy to train and use right away. The other systems are more expensive but offer more details.

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.

It's easy to share a public viewable dashboard, but also ability to lock down via IP.

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

It connects to most things I want but missing some key ones (like Adobe Cloud offerings). Doesn't really merge data. Is careful about over-use of quotas from given sources like GA.
