Geckoboard

A beautiful UI, with visuals that interest even those that hate staring at data. It's well suited for small to medium-sized businesses/corporations in which high-level sharing of data between teams is required -- the larger the distance between teams, the better as it's a great tool for level-setting on complex data. It would be less appropriate for small businesses, or those that do not need to summarize complex data to share with those not familiar with the data source

Cyfe

Cyfe is good for businesses that manage multiple websites, email campaigns and social media accounts for multiple clients, as it allows you to easily pull stats and visualize them all in one place. Make one account for each client and ask Cyfe to grab the metrics that are most meaningful to your campaigns, then you can share your dashboards with your clients, or like us, use Cyfe's visualizations to create aesthetically pleasing reports for clients to read.

Pros

Geckoboard

  • 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.
Brett Raven | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cyfe

  • Cyfe makes it easy to create a professional looking dashboards in a short amount of time. With so many built-in data sources and the intuitive nature of the interface, you can have beautiful looking charts and graphs in no time!
  • One of the best features of Cyfe is the many data sources built-in and that each dashboard is not constrained to one source. One of the drawbacks I've seen in other tools is the limited ability to pull from multiple Google Analytics profiles, multiple AdWords accounts or from both AdWords and Bing in one dashboard. Cyfe has no such limitation.
  • Google Spreadsheets - if the data you need to show is not available via an API, being able to pull from Google spreadsheets is a great solution. Once set up, you can add data whenever you need to the spreadsheet and your widgets in the Cyfe dashboard are automatically updated. Huge time saver!

Cons

Geckoboard

  • Not a must have, but unless you are decent with CSS, some style options would be nice from the user end.
Chris Peters | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cyfe

  • Documentation is sparse and confusing
  • Functionality is fairly basic and at times buggy
  • Third party integrations are limited and stagnant, very few have been added since we began using it
  • Widgets lack individual settings such as support for different date ranges
  • Widgets have limited customization options

Since initial trial, not only am I sold, but the rest of the company is sold on Cyfe as well. We look forward to expanded partners and capabilities. Our smaller firm does not have the need for multiple users as of yet, but growth is coming and the ability to scale with Cyfe is exciting.

It is very easy to use when creating dashboards that use widgets from existing integration partners. You can easily create attractive and functional dashboards in less than 5 minutes so the learning curve is minimal at most. Out-of-the-box capabilities are quite high for such a low priced service, so it's surprising how easy it is to use.

Because I had a very minor question and I was able to speak directly to the founder through LinkedIn and through email. I know that as they grow this may not always be an option but the fact that he made himself available to answer my questions said a lot about his passion for the product.

Cyfe is a 15 minutes implementation, then some time to get your data sources created. This is an easy one person job that will not result in down time or unnecessary wasted man hours.

Domo is more robust. We do use both because Geckoboard is really easy to show the rest of our team without the need for additional licenses.
Taylor Hansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cyfe

Klipfolio probably had a lot of cool features, but it was SO user-UNfriendly that we never got to use them. We had high enough turnover in our company that people always needed Klipfolio training, and it was rarely completed to the satisfaction of trainees or trainers. It was simply too complicated for a fast-paced work environment. Even one of my regular duties (posting a screenshot of a completed task list) had to be accomplished in a roundabout, unwieldy way.
