Overall Satisfaction with Google Charts

We are using Google Charts to create visualizations from data in Google Analytics we can display sales, inventory, and ROI metrics through various charts and tables. We use these charts to help clients deciper site traffic and its impact on sales. Its versatile, and we can use for almost everything.
  • Clean, organized dashboard that makes creating customized charts painless and easy.
  • Easy to connect with a variety of other Google services like maps and analytics.
  • Variety of options in charts so no limitations.
  • Horizontal and veritical alignment is only offered specifically on the graph as a whole. I wish it were available only for specific data sets.
  • Chart loading time occasionally lags.
I currently do not use any other chart options / providers.
Easy linking to other Google Applications makes using charts a no brainer
As a team we can all use the same dashboard or log in through multiple user names which makes it easy to collaborate.
Charts are universal and can be used in almost any possible scenario
