Overall Satisfaction with Geckoboard

While the majority of our Geckoboard dashboards are accessible by most of our employees, there are a very small subset of regular Geckoboard users (primarily data analytics, hardware operations, and product management). In the oft-found overpopulated business tool scope, Geckoboard provides users with any level of data analysis experience to quickly and easily access a dashboard.

Pros

  • User self-help - the video tutorials and a robust publicly accessible knowledgebase.
  • Geckoboard can aggregate data from a number of other apps into a singular dashboard.
  • Sleek, dark UI.

Cons

  • No mobile application solutions (as far as I am aware). In order to share my beautiful dashboards with a non-Geckoboard account user, I need to hop on a browser.
  • No support for ad hoc reporting -- if this were a feature, I'd be happy to drive my presentations to executive staff purely as
I find Geckoboard and Klipfolio to be in parallel in terms of performance and presentation. I will say that Klipfolio pulls slightly ahead as it allows for custom branding (great when sharing data with external stakeholders) and having access/edit control based on roles.
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.
