Amazing value and support for the money

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall the experience has been great. Our sales rep at Grow has been awesome to work with. We have enjoyed some time with Grow's technical team to answer some questions we had on implementing some widgets. All of these things has made us confident in the product that we have chosen to use.

Pluspunten:

What made Grow ideal for a small(er) business like ours is the fact they provide all three components of a traditional data warehouse solution under one roof: warehouse, ETL, and BI. We were able to engage a single company to handle all of these services without any prior knowledge of cloud computing, business intelligence, etc. The BI interface is much cleaner and easier to work with than another service that we have worked with. We have used Amazon Quicksight in the past and it always left me wanting more. I have not gotten that with Grow.

Minpunten:

I will occasionally encounter some user experience or user interface issues. For example, some of the SQL syntax highlighting/auto-completion will not work. Sometimes text widgets will just "disappear" after I have dragged them onto the canvas. I haven't been able to establish a pattern, but it's kind of inconvenient when it happens.

Lowering the barrier to entry on data visualization at scale

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall we are incredibly satisfied with Grow as our visualization tool of choice. Though there are minor limitations on performance and BI capabilities, it still provides an incredible solution at a very reasonable price with a low barrier to entry.
If you’re going for a platform that can be easily scaled at a palatable price and don’t have substantial teams of coding experts, Grow is the perfect sweet spot for your organization.

Pluspunten:

The two biggest pros for utilizing Grow for our data visualization/dashboard needs is the ability to operate at scale and the accessibility and usability to employees with various technical abilities. The general requirements of our firm included 200+ dashboards for both clients and internal use that provided extensive user permission options, did not require all users/architects to be extensively skilled at coding languages, and still provided the customization capabilities of higher dollar platforms. Grow was a perfect solution to all of these challenges. Their transformation “apps” within their builder allow users with limited SQL knowledge to apply all manipulations needed to datasets. Their user permissions, with unlimited users model, allows for a scalable system that handles all internal and external requirements. Their new data explorer functionality empowers end users to further manipulate and analyze data. All this at a competitive price point made Grow a perfect solution for our business.

Minpunten:

The two biggest one to utilizing Grow as our data visualization tool are its lack of true BI capabilities and some of the technical challenges we’ve faced. Though neither is enough to sway us from a “definitely recommend” stance, both are worth noting. When compared to more expensive solutions built around BI (think Tableau or Looker), Grow lacks BI capabilities. The new data explorer functionality helps significantly close this gap, but it still is up to the architect and end-user to provide the “analysis” component. If your team lacks the ability to translate data into action, Grow doesn’t have BI/AI/etc capabilities like other platforms to bridge that gap. Additionally, while Grow performs reasonably well, it’s not without its technical challenges. Being a smaller company than the titans of the visualization space, technical challenges stretch out longer than they seemingly should. Additionally, though their business model/pricing makes it incredibly scalable, large volumes of data sources (not necessarily a large data source; simply having many different sources connected at once) can lead to slower loading/building that can hamper my team’s efficiency. Again, neither of these are deal breakers by any means, but are worth noting.

Not for those wanting to really look into their data

3,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We use the tool to eliminate some of the data silos we have in our operations. It has wonderful functionality of bringing in multiple data sources - from social media, website analytics, POS data, etc. - into one dashboard.
We've been able to get important data, from multiple sources, into the faces of our managers every 5 minutes (that's the least amount of time between data updates). Which has allowed us to be more agile when it comes to saving money and reducing risk.
It has great flexibility and the team at Grow definitely works hard to impress. They build an integration into one of our software to make it easier to work with their system.

Pluspunten:

Their UI is awesome. I love the overall look and feel for the entire system. Graphs look updated, clean, and they are fairly easy to customize. Making the dashboards look good is fairly simple.

Minpunten:

Not data warehousing the data is an issue. Long load times really get me frustrated with the software. It seems to take a minute to edit a metric, load a new metric, or even sometime update a metric. Updating a dashboard can take 2 minutes at times. Drilling down and looking into the data is very underwhelming. Dashboard filters don't exist so you're stuck loading filters only to individual metrics, not the whole dashboard. Email triggers that send reports on a set schedule are limited to only 7 am MT on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. Time zone offsets have been the death of me in the system. They use SQLite to format the data coming in but their out-of-the-box data filtering overrides all SQLite filters. It's been super frustrating trying to get the data we want.

Great, easy-to-use non-technical tool for business insights

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall, this has given us the metrics platform we needed to be able to build and maintain the reports we require to monitor and gain key insights to our business. The team at Grow have always been outstanding to help us solve everything from simple to very complex problems in our to achieve our reporting goals.

Pluspunten:

Can do almost anything with patience and logic, no need to distract developers to assist with complicated data queries. Customer support is outstanding, always taking the time to properly understand and help address anything you throw at them - very solution-focused.

Minpunten:

Can be a bit buggy at times, especially after big releases, requiring more attention than I would like towards "fixing" metrics that were previously working fine. Can also be very slow with large data sets, some of which are just too big for it to handle.

An Insightful Review of Grow Business Intelligence Platform

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: I have been using Grow for a few months now and have been very pleased with the results. The platform is easy to use and provides comprehensive data insights that help me make well-informed decisions.

Pluspunten:

Grow Business Intelligence Platform provides an intuitive and user-friendly interface that makes data analysis a breeze. The automated data insights feature allows users to easily visualize and interpret data to make informed decisions.

Minpunten:

The only downside to using Grow is that it can be a bit costly. The basic package may not be suitable for everyone as it does not include all features.

Usability and functionality are fantastic!

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: As an end user, my experience has been extremely favorable, especially compared to the previous data and analytics software we used. The data is generally easy to locate, and when I need assistance setting up a report that I need, I can save the report and reference it in the future without additional assistance.

Pluspunten:

When I need to filter down information on hundreds of employees to a specific employee, customer, region and/or time frame, Grow.com makes it easy to get what I need fast. I am a user in the company that utilizes the data to make sales decisions and review performance on previously sold deals.

Minpunten:

Sometimes I experience difficulty with the time frame filters and comparing data. As a relatively untrained user, most reporting filters are self explanatory, but I have had difficulty with some and have had to reach out to our data team for assistance in getting the information I need.

GROW: A great tool for starting analytics

4,0 7 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Was a great tool to make quick efficient data reports that a user could read and understand in less than 20-30 seconds.

Pluspunten:

The interface could be understood quite easily with minimal training allowing for quick generation of data reports. The SQL backend, data connections and data warehouse allow for the user to go into much further depth with their data.

Minpunten:

Sometimes the platform would be slow to update and the data would could very rarely not update.

Amazing Visual and Connected Ability Dashboard

4,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Grow does two things really well. The first is the visual appearance of grow is amazing. They have done a really good job in making it look great. It makes people want to buy and use the product. My entire team is exciting for us to finish up the dashboards and roll it out. The ability to have multiple dashboards for different divisions on your team is great. The second thing they do really well is the ability to connect all your data in one place. As a small business that is building from the ground up, we have data coming from multiple location, Google Analytics, Dropbox, our website, quickbooks, etc. Now we have a central location that we can look at all the data. It has allowed us to look at our whole business in real time. Where grow falls a little short on is the ability to manually create. Everything looks great but sometime you cant show all the necessary data you need to, in the way you want to. The metrics are static and you dont have the ability to manipulate the data the way you want to, like where a number goes or create a needed metrics. For the most part some of the things we are trying to do are more robust, that typical businesses might not notice the constraints. Grows dashboard inability to be flexibility in its designing makes it hard, if there is something your really want to show but are unable, you are kind of locked in The main complaint is the full screen mode. We love the look and feel over it but for us where we would use this the most would be in a presentation. Where we would present the different dashboards. We dont like how you cant click to the next dashboard. The only option is to wait a minute or exit out and go to the next. If you have to exit out you lose the dramatics that the full screen dashboard creates. I have the ability to scroll over the numbers in full screen but I cant just click next dashboard. That part makes no sense to me. I can live without a metrics because it looks so great but If I cant present it, that creates an issue. Overall, it is a amazing tool, that I believe my company will be growing with. It has got great reception from everyone that we have shown too. And the main purpose is it is suppose to sell the business and how well you might be doing. It does a great job doing that. The customer support is really great. The people at grow are really helpful. Having a support team that can assist you means a lot. They are looking out for your success. Cheers

Pluspunten:

I like the look and feel of grow. It looks really now and not outdated. It really is a great looking product.

Minpunten:

a) Some of the metrics are sometimes not as manipulative as we would like. Where we would like to move around a number or something. They are more static. b) The real big one is the full screen mode. We love the look and feel over it but for us where we would use this the most would be in a presentation. Where we would present the different dashboards. We dont like how you cant click to the next dashboard. The only option is to wait a minute or exit out.

Solid BI Dashboard Solution

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It's been great to build out the dashboards that we need to see what's working in real-time so we can make smart, data-backed decisions, in real-time.

Pluspunten:

As a marketer who tends to geek out on performance data, it's been great to have a solid dashboard solution that allows me to connect multiple data sources, aggregate all the data and slice and dice to create visual charts, graphs and tables that paint a clear picture of how our marketing initiatives are performing.

Minpunten:

Again as a marketer (vs. a data analyst), there is a bit of a learning curve at first when figuring out how to leverage Grow's data manipulation and filtering tools. But the Grow team has continually made improvements to these systems, which have dramatically improved the metric/dashboard building experience. My main criticisms, which are probably not unique to Grow, just revolve around the integrations that they provide. They are still missing some popular platform connections that we need.

Review - TETON Sports

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Our experience has been very positive. Thanks to training from the last Data Driven Summit, we've been able to successfully tap into our data and successfully aggregate it enough to gain insights.

Pluspunten:

This software allows for the majority of your data to be accessible within Grow's platform. The abilities to transform the data and present it in a professional, and aesthetically appealing way is critical. I've enjoyed the ability that Grow has to leverage a lot of the functions and abilities available in Excel and other database querying languages inherently in their builder.

Minpunten:

Without a knowledge of SQL, many data sources are rendered useless or very cumbersome to retrieve meaningful data. Many of the lesser know data sources do not (understandably) have metrics pre built and ready to add to dashboards, therefore, inspection of the data sources and knowledge of SQL transformations and joins are required to achieve the right data for what's needed.

Great BI Tool

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Once everything is up and going, it works great, just takes some time initially to set up.

Pluspunten:

We were a somewhat early adopter of the platform, so I've seen a lot of change and improvement over the years from the software. They add useful features on a regular basis and have an amazing support team that is quick to help with any issues that arise. There is a large array of outside connections that can be pulled into the platform, making it easy to aggregate all of our data in one place.

Minpunten:

It can be a bit tedious to overhaul metrics once they've been created if we want to update them to use the newest features.

Gem of a product

4,0 8 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: The product allows you to pull in data from different sources of your company (and combine them) and build visualizations. It also supports custom SQL queries on the data sources. It basically turns them into SQL tables and then lets you query them. They also support excel type features. The company is definitely early stage and has a bunch of things to iron out but I love the design the vision of the product and think there is huge potential here. If you are familiar with Salesforce and the Dashboard app, Grow is what that should be. It supports multiple users and custom permissions for each user. Which is great for sharing the dashboards and reports with Investors / Interested parties without giving them everything.

Pluspunten:

The list is long, this product has so many nice features, I was told when we signed up that they have a 90+% retention which doesn't surprise me. I'd just give it a shot if your looking for dashboard, visualization software.

Minpunten:

There are some really basic things missing from this product that would make it a lot better. There is no "pivot table type" feature which for ETL is a basic feature and I'm surprised they don't have it. The application runs slow. Given the complexity of the visualizations and dashboards I'm not surprised, the amount of javascript that must be under the hood... But still its really frustrating to work with at times due to speed. For all the criticism salesforce gets its super fast and reliable and that just counts for so much.

Decent Product, Poor Account Management Team

4,0 12 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: The product itself is decent. Can take care of most needs. As our business has grown, we have outgrown it. There are limitations with both the database functionality and visualizations.The account teams that have serviced the accounts over the years have not been good to work with. [sensitive content hidden] (our latest rep) has been awful. No communication from her and had to constantly follow up with her to get information. When we had issues, neither her nor her manager [sensitive content hidden] would respond to my emails or meet with me.

Pluspunten:

Easy to use and set up charts, graphs, etc.

Minpunten:

Could not support more complex data sets / kpi's (e.g. Heat Maps)

Amazing Dashboard Software

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

- Cross connect data and from different sources and view them in one dashboard. Eg. CRM with Facebook ads - SQL made easy- the software is so easy to use that you end up running SQL queries without even realizing it - Easy, digestible dashboards to share with the rest of the team - Amazing onboarding, training, and customer success team. They make sure you're all set up - Easy set up of LTV graphs and modeling

Minpunten:

- If you're not an analytical person or comfortable with numbers, it will be difficult for you to ramp up. - Steep learning curve- but so worth it!

Easy to use, great support

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

I've never used a dashboarding tool before and with a little bit of training, I've found Grow to be a powerful and simple tool to use.

Minpunten:

A small nitpicky thing, when you create a new metric the charts don't snap to fit in a grid system - you have to drag all of your charts around to accommodate anything new or just drag your new one to the bottom.

BI Platform For Experts

3,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We built a very comprehensive dashboard showing all our most important KPIs. However, so many changes were being made to the platform that it was hard to keep up because it required us to make major changes to our metrics. We decided to switch to a different product.

Pluspunten:

Brought in every single data point that we needed to bring in. The customer service was also top notch! Their support staff was very responsive and helped out above and beyond their commitment.

Minpunten:

Not much customization available. Lack of features. When we had our account we weren't able to change a date filters for the entire dashboard, but I believe they have fixed that. But i was disappointed in the lack of customization.

Opmerkingen: I like them for use when they are operational and the program isn't being bogged down by large user pools. But they need work on the back end with heavier duty use servers to insure the program doesn't crash as often when a group is using the same program.

Pluspunten:

The software filters are great and easy to use. The dashboard for review of KPI's is very user friendly and makes quick work of reporting.

Minpunten:

The whole program has issues with functionality based on the size of their server. They have crash issues regularly when the server is bogged down due to heavy user traffic.

Opmerkingen: using it to pull data from our systems to help understand and identify certain things that our current in house systems do not display - allows us to plan and discuss things that are coming up without being blindsided by the lack of display of that info in our systems

Pluspunten:

helps me visualize things that my company's current systems do not display. helps make up for the lack of development internally.
