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.

Google Charts

Google Charts is a useful program when trying to incorporate data and plots into web pages. It is easy to use for those with basic computer and coding skills. However, for advanced plots and high-level statistics, it does not offer the power to get the job done.

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.

  • The look and feel of the rendered charts should be updated, they are still using flat colors and they do not seem to follow the latest trends in web design.
  • It is hard to implement for non-technical users.

Google Charts are free, work pretty well, and is expanding in features so for some applications it's a no brainer

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.

We selected Google Charts because it's behind the Google company, and this is a guarantee that it will always be updated and will support the vast majority of browsers. It's also updated very frequently and Google made it completely free of charge. Other libraries with similar features have an extra cost.

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.

Google Charts, being a Google product lets you enjoy your access policies and collaboration through its authentication process. It is very similar to Google Maps or other APIs belonging to Google in that aspect.

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

Google Charts allows the customization of the data source via JavaScript. That way, you can access and connect your data source the way that best fits your business needs. It is not restrictive, but still allows you to respect the safety standards that you drive in real time.
