Overall Satisfaction with Grow.com

Grow.com is used primarily by marketing when it comes to the architecture and building of the dashboards, but several other departments utilize the dashboards from a viewership perspective. Our CEO has told us he gets more insight than he ever has before in the history of the company. One of the main problems we were trying to solve it bringing in all of these sources of data into one central location for analysis.
  • Grow.com is very easy to use with minimum experience in databases or SQL
  • Most of the metrics are aesthetically pleasing compared to other competitors
  • They are continuing to improve and add more and more datasources as time goes on
  • Their pricing structure can be difficult as they charge for the peak number of metrics you have used over a given time
  • Some of the individual metrics are not as customizable as one would like
  • Using some of the spreadsheet functions take some learning and are not as intuitive as the rest of the product seems
Grow.com has the easiest to use UI/UX out of the other business intelligence tools that I have used. It is a little more intuitive and takes less knowledge of SQL to really get what you want. The pre-built metrics really help to get up and going right out of the box, where others take more time setting up and getting to a point where you can glean any type of useful data points.
Grow.com has a wide range of connectivity for data sources. We don't use anything too wild, we use the "normal" gambit of Facebook Ads, Google Ads and Google Analytics, Salesforce, HubSpot, etc. Grow allows us to get connected to all of these with ease. We have only run into a few instances where we either cannot connect at all to a service we use, or can connect but do not get the specific data points for which we are looking. This is a rare case, definitely not the common theme. Most of the time it has more to do with the API of the third-party application than with Grow.com's capability.
Grow.com makes working on dashboards and metrics together a breeze. You can give access to specific dashboards and data sources to specific people, allowing for better collaboration as well as controlled environment for building and the use of the metrics. Displaying dashboards to the end user is also very easy and can be slightly customized to make visibility easier.
If you are looking for a way to combine metrics from several different sources, Grow.com is an excellent source for that. It does not take much learning to get insight through visual representation of data. There are some great pre-built metrics in the big categories that can help anyone get up and running in minutes. Grow.com fits great with small to medium businesses who are looking for simple insight into their complex structures. The more complexity you have, some other tools might be a better fit, but Grow.com will cover the majority of business needs.
