Overall Satisfaction with Chartio

It's mainly used to analyse the marketing expenditure and get on top of the CPO and the sales per month. Chartio is a very agile tool where I can easily build the report I want. It's easy to load data from both offline and online sales.

I would say that this is the number one BI tool compared to other BI tools I've used.
  • Intuitive for reporting and analysing on the fly.
  • Can perform calculations in tables and in the data cells instead of pre-processing the data elsewhere and not only using the Chartio tool as a tool for viewing data. Not passive but active reporting and analysing which makes the tool a good core tool in any corporate BI suite.
  • Chartio has a lot of usable diagrams for viewing data from new perspectives which makes our business decisions much wiser than they would be otherwise. With Chartio it's easier to have the right data at the right time for the best possible business outcome.
  • If you have connected to a simple MYSQL-database which has a limited amount of requests, perhaps be able to send the database requests in sql instead of all of them at the same time. Especially if you have a dashboard build with a lot of single number KPIs.
The easy of use and the level of busienss value you get from using Chartio next tho the ones with older UX-experiences.
I think most of it is covered in previous questions.
We have the necessary sources needed for our needs.
We are not distributing reports in the organization to be able to rate the question properly.
Chartio doesn't necessarily require outside expertise which could be a hidden cost when investing in other BI-tools. Investigate how you as a future Chartio user can save a bundle by using an easier and more user friendly back-end and administration process.
