Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Grow is very well suited for data visualization and dashboards. It is very slick looking—we keep our common sales and marketing KPIs on an array of TVs, and it's pretty. I like how they call and receive data, keeps everything really up to date. If more statistics or in-depth analysis is needed, Grow really isn't the right tool. If you want to display KPI data simply and beautifully, it's a perfect tool.

  • Visualizations are really solid. It's extremely well designed and laid out.
  • UX and UI is fantastic. Gives you exactly what you're looking for, and typically where you're looking for it.
  • Simple to integrate common platforms and pull data.

Cons

9 Spokes

  • 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.

Grow.com

  • Their pricing structure can be difficult as they charge for the peak number of metrics you have used over a given time
  • Some of the individual metrics are not as customizable as one would like
  • Using some of the spreadsheet functions take some learning and are not as intuitive as the rest of the product seems

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.

Grow.com has the easiest to use UI/UX out of the other business intelligence tools that I have used. It is a little more intuitive and takes less knowledge of SQL to really get what you want. The pre-built metrics really help to get up and going right out of the box, where others take more time setting up and getting to a point where you can glean any type of useful data points
