Great Group to work with. I only did the trial as we were investigating several BI products. iDashboard was my favorite of the several that we were able to try; however, the cost was more than the firm was willing to pay for at the time. Setting up an in-house Dashboard has now been placed on the back burner till the middle of 2017.
Awesome Customer Support!
User Friendly for the no-so-techy user!

iDashboards has brought our data to life, the good, bad and ugly. We are using our data like never before and are pleased more than we ever thought we would be. In conjunction with that, iDashboards has some of the best customer support I've ever seen. From simple questions to complex help, THEY ROCK!
Ease of use by your normal power user
Need video tutorials to help users do the more complex building (ie: Parameters, Picklists etc..)
Buy this product - you won't be disappointed.

Great product if yu need to visualize at the best your data and your statistics, especially when you need to "tell users a story" built with their data. Any database could be a data source and iDashboards has some interesting analytics fetures. The most relevant feature is anyway iDashboards's Visual intelligence and the level of interactivity with users. Even if native with Flash, iDashboards could be used via its HTML5 interface or thru its apps in Android and iOs. Still not among the best for smartphone users.
Easy to be implemented and managed, Great Visual Intelligence features to connect different areas/series showing the relationships often hiddden in your data. Good technical support. Language packs in many languages
Smartpohne interface is rather weak; some localizations for European Countries are still to be realeased, Focused on Flash, where all the visual features cold be shwn and used, instead than HTML5 or other safer standars
Donna from National Infrastructure Development Co. Ltd.
We have just completed a 30-day trial of the software and the team is excited about rolling this product out across the company. The best features are all the functionalities! The DESIGN possibilities for charts seem endless and truly helps us to visualize our data. INTERACTIVE INTELLIGENCE allows us to see the effects of changes in each input parameter across several charts. Very useful for us in terms of scenario planning.
We are about to implement this software across the company and are yet to find a feature we do not like. we are a frugal company, so my only concern would be the cost per user.
This trial version is fully functional, so have your data ready. Also ensure access to the different types of users across the organization, particularly if their data sets are very different.

Clear and high performing dashboard. Has a lot of variety of graphs
Too complex to create a dashboard. Cannot easily create complex query or dataset using multiple tables.
Can my analyst create reports quickly and with ease using this software? Is it easy to learn and does the product have all the functionality I am looking for . For example: Faster data access, easy query building and accessing tables, graphics, data encryption etc
Roy from Boyd Brothers Transportation

the ease of using the product, doesn't require a engineering degree
that i can't show every single metric we use at the same time, that's just because we have too many
use it, you'll love it. You'll be surprised how you metrics just jump out to you and we can visually analyze them
Carol from Rain for Rent
iDashboards is an easy, efficient, affordable, robust, interactive, user-friendly software with incredible visualization capability. This business intelligence software equips anyone from IT to end user with the ability to analyze data quickly and deliver one of many data views with drill down capabilities.
This vendor's support system is excellent and the product speaks for itself. The primary limitation is the 10MB excel file size.
This software sells itself with the free trial period - you can easily learn and build dashboards within hours!
Allan from Firstrust Bank
Specialty: Banking & Financial Services
The product is both very powerful in terms of functionality and easy to use
Nothing bad to say - the product is great and vendor support is excellent
I think you have to look at feature/functionality vs the price point and you will see that this software represents the best value in its class
Tim from Company Vitals
Specialty: Accounting / CPA
Flexibilty to program in a variety of platforms including Excel for non-programmers. Easy to use, yet also a great deal of complexity in what can be done with charts, graphs and dashboards. Interactivity and synchronized pivots among charts on a dashboard is powerful. The cloud platform allows us to server companies regardless of location.
Could benefit from a larger library of API's to connect to a variety of today's popular tools. Better email tools on cloud platform.
Great product. Compare costs vs benefits to other platforms. Cloud based version provides a lot of flexibility.
Teresa from Energi Insurance
Very easy to generate very dynamic and graphical report with a strong database and data modeling background.
I wish they would implement a button to run some calculations for the report after some selections.
Look into how easy and friendly it is for the end users, the presentation of the reports.
Tim from Orbis Education
We opted for the onsite training for a week, which while a bit pricey. It definitely gets you up and running very quickly. The way that this is designed makes it relatively easy to master after a few iterations.
The necessity for dynamic dashboards is not quite user-friendly from the design and programming standpoint; if you're not a coder by nature, this could be somewhat tricky to do. Likewise, source files can only be 10 MB in size for the reports to pull from, which can prove problematic.
Know what metrics you want to see before evaluating; ask questions about the set up and maintenance going forward.
Tracey from The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas
First, I love the support I get from the iDashboards Help Desk. No matter what my issue is, they do all that they can to help me - above and beyond!
Regarding the product, its best feature is their user interface. It makes it easier to design new charts and dashboards. I also love the flexibility of the product to allow me to control what users can see, such as filtering the data retrieved by the user name.
Not sure I have an answer to this one. There are a few features I would like to see added, but iDashboards Development is good at working customer requests into their next build.
iDashboards has a wonderful Knowledge Base (part of OSKAR) that you can query to get all kinds of help. There are webinars (both live and recorded), manuals, and answers to other customer inquiries, all of which can help you solve your own problem. I have made it my mission to read all that is on there and watch applicable webinars to learn all that I can. It is my go-to for any questions I have before contacting the Help Desk.
