This is well suited to someone (or a team) who are technically minded and have a dataset that they need to be able to use in many ways. It's less appropriate for a team who isn't technically minded and/or don't have the data they need to manipulate. It would be useful for things that you could use a database or spreadsheet for such as CRM, Advertising database, Business tracking, Health tracking etc.

Vizlib helps us make better use of our data and significantly improves our use of Qlik. If you use Qlik Sense, you need Vizlib. It provides charts and functionality that is necessary to visualize and work with data successfully. It does a great job with our data which comes from a variety of systems and files.

  • Small changes such as auto colouring the choices/toggles options and being able to edit them once set.

We have figured out how to use Vizlib features on our own on many occasions. Whenever we do run into questions, the support team is very helpful and able to help us figure out how to do things quickly. I feel features are more advanced, but we know the depth is there when we’re ready to use it

Vizlib support is awesome! We have quick turnaround times and regular updates when we open cases. It’s so good we often ask them Qlik Sense questions, rather than going to Qlik support

We chose Vizlib because we use Qlik Sense as our main dashboard tool. It is easy to use by our few developers. We are able to build custom visualizations and theme our dashboards with our branding which resonates with our community. Compared to other tools, it is much easier and intuitive to use, because we don’t have to learn coding

Return on Investment
Grist Labs
  • It's saved a lot of time in both creating an advertising database and managing it week to week effectively. I had previously created in others that haven't worked, and this does, saving me a good 1 hour weekly, and 5 hours or more each time I had problems with the last ones
  • Being able to stay on track with this has meant I'm following up at the right time (advertisers) and keeping a professional manner and not losing business due to missed communication
  • Saving me $ from buying a program like Access (or Airtable monthly) and then the learning curve that that has. This has a much easier learning curve to say the least.
