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.

Dashboard Platform

When there is the need to rapidly show data and/or build a nice UI without having to build your own stuff. Let's say one needs to have a complete dashboard about some business streams or other KPI intensive system. Designing and implementing everything from scratch will take a huge amount of time. And a steep learning curve. Dashboard platform will help cut down those two timelines.

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.

  • Showing data in graphical form
  • The amount and types of charts/graphs that are available
  • The theme support could be better, but even so, the options available allow for good customization

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 documentation. It lacks detail and real-world examples.
  • The theme support. It really could use some improvement in the easiness of customization
  • As always, there's room for improvement. Maybe allowing for a better experience in terms of mix and match data points on the graphs

Support

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

They are basically on par, but the docs and in general, including support, Telerik is a bit superior. I find it to be better in terms of user-friendliness and also better polished UI wise, I mean, overall they just look better and offer somewhat better themes/skins to all the widgets.

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.

Did not use this feature, so I don't really have an opinion.

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's pretty standard, so all in all, good. If one would detail an answer, from my limited contact and use with the platform, it seems there's plenty of room in the frameworks to merge data sources or use directly different data sources, if none else by using well-known code approaches to solve the trickier needs.
