Overall Satisfaction with DashThis

DashThis is being used company-wide to track and monitor key client metrics month over month. We've dumped just about every app and resource site's data into it, creating a one-stop shop for analysis. From email, to paid search, to social media to website traffic, DashThis has provided a simple solution for providing a complete analytics database. Previous programs we have used are very siloed, and while they are helpful it's difficult managing 5 different apps and sites to get the monthly information we need.

Pros

  • Simple drag and drop interface. No complex programming or integrations needed.
  • Custom options for advanced users. The baseline graphs and charts are very helpful, but depending on what point you're trying to get across it's easy to create your own for maximum understanding
  • Easily accessible. Save time, trees, and money. Every month we simple forward a dashboard link to our clients. No complex reports necessary.

Cons

  • I'm interested in implementing more tools into the system, such as Google My Business or OpenTable to truly make it a universal analytics dashboard.
  • Instead of just month over month date ranges, I would also like to see a YTD date range.
  • Cut down hours of data retrieval and analysis
  • Made more room in client budgets for bigger initiatives
I prefer DashThis to Google Data Studio because it's so much more well rounded. While Google is much more customizable with it's blank slate, I actually prefer the drag and drop features of DashThis for our smaller clients who don't necessarily need that level of customization. Another drawback is Google Data Studio can only reflect data relevant to Google. Email, paid social, and other crucial stats would have to be manually imported which prevents us from utilizing the tool as a "time saver."
DashThis has worked well for us because many of our clients can't afford hours and hours of reporting and analysis fees. This has cut costs for both our agency and the clients, all while providing useful information. For our larger clients, some additional information and work is still needed to provide the whole picture so I'm not sure what our next steps will be to accomodate that.
