Overall Satisfaction with Google Charts

so we used Google Charts to measure the course completion rate for courses taken up, enrolment rate, assignment completion, diversity of topics etc. for our students and instructors. we used the google charts feature to create visual dashboards having bar and pie charts to see enrolment, completion, learning rates in district school where our courses are available. it helps provide an easy way to understand enrolment vs completion rates and then provide guidance to students on their learning
  • they're free with Google suite and they have backing in terms of powerful Google apps which can be plugged in to perform multiple actions like using Google sheets to import raw data into Google Charts
  • they're the most simple app to use when it comes to creating charts and visual dashboards
  • ease of customization
  • ease of using custom APIs from developers side to help make any types of charts and dashboards you want
  • they don't have geographic charts yet like any other BI tool (MS BI, Tableau)
  • customization needs knowledge of programming language and it is not done through some plugins which give you perform the customization through a UI way
  • teams were easily able to create charts and find out progress on our learning courses and thus take actionable insights to their managers, professors
  • students could also know their progress on various courses from one single view, same for instructors in terms of imparting education
  • sales team could learn which kind of courses sold more to focus more on those areas
Our teams were already using Google's G suite and as google charts simply came tagged along with it, they were more than happy to go with google charts given its capabilities. Though we have another BI solution in place but teams mostly work with google charts and export their output to BI tools advanced insights

Did Google Charts live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Google Charts go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Google Charts again?

Yes

again the same reason that set of apps in Google can be used to import data in google charts, single sign on when our whole organization was with Google's G suite, security measures for authorized login and access to data, ease of accessing tools anywhere and on any device - these all pointers stacked in favor of me giving a good rating to Google Charts.
Google overall had very few outages when we're still with G suite and google charts needs support only when users want customization and are aware of which programming language or API package to use. Otherwise functional users need not need support in terms of working with Google Charts apart from the initial onboarding phase.
Google Charts is just one step short of being the perfect BI tool you would want to have. It is free mostly but for enterprises it comes in a package with G suite. It can help you create all types of charts, and those charts can be embedded in dashboards for a single holistic view of your applications. Its ability to work with data from other google apps is simply amazing and as Google is part of most of our daily lives, Google Charts doesn't make you feel like you're working with something new from day one.
