ClicData is a business intelligence (BI) dashboard solution designed for use primarily by small and midsized businesses. The tool enables end users to create reports and dashboards.
A drag-and-drop interface designed for ease of use allows users to connect to data located both on-premise and in the cloud. Users can analyze data pulled from a wide variety of sources, including Google Analytics, Facebook, Salesforce, Oracle, MySQL and Dropbox.
In addition to allowing users to create dashboards, ClicData also powers data processing tasks, including data history management, and automated merging and transformation of data. Businesses are thus able to manage their data and keep it centralized.
ClicData is also designed for collaboration: Users can send or share reports and dashboards to teams through its interface, or publish their dashboards and embed them in other Web applications' websites. Dashboards and reports can also be accessed via laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

We started with the free version, which is complete enough of our purposes. Looking at the features of paid versions, we know that a professional growth lies ahead.
Clicdata is very easy to use, looks and feals professional. The designer interface is very handy and easy to use. Most functions or features are easy to find and use.

Easy to use. Little exploration to understand fully.
None so far. I have been exploring the functions and everything seems to basic and easy to understand.
I simply would recommend this to start-up companies with little budget on IT departments.

Extremely cheap ! And it does almost everything the (way) more pricey software do.
Not 100% of the connector i'd like. But they implement more over time.
Try the connector, try to ask for specific way to plug things in.
Jeff from Ballen Brands
Data that helps me decide what to do next in my business.
There's not anything I can think of that I can't create with my data. Being able to pull in information from multiple data sources to compile real metrics to run my business is awesome.
There's so much I can do with it, it's a little tough to focus in and get simple dashboards done. Having a "getting started" type of interface may be useful, rather than having access to everything.
John from Behavorial Innovations
The price is very reasonable if only simple dashboards are needed. It is very easy to add and remove users. Users can easily navigate between dashboards.
I need ClicData team to modify or customize the existing reports. ClicData cannot visualize complicated data analysis
Brentton from Corton Analytics
(TBD - we have not completed our builds, however we plan to prior to years end and upgrade to the paid solution)
You have a very flexible and amazing solution regarding our customization/look and feel. The functionality is top notch as well.
Your speed of your customer service could be improved with a live chat option for quick and simple inquiries. Other than that, I think your solution is awesome.
Mark from ICOM Productions
Very slick clean features that made graphing our survey results very quick and easy to understand. Our client loved the pie charts.
We had 27 survey questions to pie chart. It was a fairly manual process for each of them so duplicating similar charts was a bit of work. We had several rounds of updates so a bit of legwork was required there as well.

allows us to dashboard report project status for all of our customers and internal projects.
easy to use. If you have a basic understanding of data structures and an idea of what you want to report, you can do it with little help.
formulas are difficult to understand without significant trial and error or research. Would also like to see the features advertised roll out faster than they have in the past.
The integrations with other software and web pages made it really easy to keep the dashboard updated and the amount of customisable options is a great feature.
Some of the UI isn't hugely intuitive and there were a few times there were glitches with some of the intergrations.
Clicdata makes it easy to make reports on KPI's of our selfes and for our costumers.
The drag and drop makes it easy to do a lot of stuf. Even to make interactive boards is easy.
And if you can't figure it out, there is an excellent support desk.
For a bit more complicated stuf you need to know some coding. Sometimes that is a bit hard for a dummy like me. But support is excellent.

The customization ability and all the tools that you have at your disposal. The sometimes responsiveness of the offshore hosted system.
Delayed service, constant downtime for updates, functionality that is lost after upgrades (This includes number indicators that no longer automatically resize the shape when you drag it).
Erwin from PT MEDISAFE TECHNOLOGIES
Every month we have meeting and use this software in presentation and all participant like it.
Since 3 years only one time we had a problem, because of update from Clicdata that cause some function not work properly.
- Design is good
- Value for money is excellent
- Many type of data connection
- Easy to use, if we used to it.
- Sometime error in data loader (Stuck)
- After update, there is some changes affect previous dashboard
- Parameter from previous dashboard can not been carried to new dashboard
Tommy from Westover Companies
Intuitiveness and ease of use. On the first day, I was able to get data into the system, manipulate it using Clicdata's function, and get a dashboard together.
The little things. Sometimes the dashboard will change size and shape, independent of the size chosen in the settings. The grid function I used to line graphs and such is off sometimes by an annoying pixel or two. Nothing serious
Alexandre from Cabral Motor Honda
The main benefit is to have the information of the company in few screens, in a simple, compact and beautiful way. Extreme ease of use and creation of dashboards.
Ease of use and support agility.
Various database connections make it easy to send information....
Some calculations require complex solutions. Some widgets could have more options, such as knowing the highest value of a drilldown table.

I'm only on the free tier of ClicData, using it to visualise financial data. I'm blown away by the depth of functionality available - even at its most basic, this is truly an outstanding dashboard tool.
Great depth of functionality
IPhone app is a little clunky
Arnault from EcoVadis
When I started to use ClicData, I thought the tool was really complex, not finished & not as powerful as other solutions ... But after several month using it, I now feel that it's much more simpler & easy-to-use, and very efficient in terms of online sharing (Passworded HTML links).
¿ The Drag & Drop system allows to connect in an easy way different databases on different reports and give the possibility to hide a report to show another one by clicking on a dropdown list using a formula, which is according to me really powerful to switch the view of one graph (for instance switching between Month / Year split for time charts) using a button instead of creating a different DB.
¿ ClicData permits also to create a whole network of dashboards by connecting them to labels, button, charts, which so permit to switch from one to another with a simple click without any IT development.
¿ The customization part of reports is not as powerful as other tool, but compared to the ease to deliver the MVP dashboard, it's worth it.
¿ The Data Transform feature & T-SQL language is not easy to get used to at the beginning but is also quite nice to work on your data directly in the tool.
¿ From all ticket I already wrote, the support was nice, quick & efficient.
¿ The pricing is also totally flexible depending on your need, and very acceptable for such a tool, which is one of the main reason I'm using it today.
I use this tool on a daily basis now,
Thanks a lot for your work on this !
¿ Easy & quick
¿ Easy online sharing
¿ High content for the price
¿ Some UX missing features like not showing specific labels that overlap others
¿ Quite difficult to find some relevant supportive documents / videos to train yourself on the web
¿ The integration with GDrive is efficient & you can have you own refresh plan per file / dashboard, which is very nice when you work with Google Spreadsheet. If you know exactly how many files you need & how many dashboards, you'll adapt the pricing accordingly, avoiding additional cost for features you don't use.

Let's face it: there's hundreds of dashboard solutions out there, all competing for your attention. Take a close look and it's always a trade-off between functionality, ease of use, customisation options and pricing.
You'll find everything from zippy, push-button options that may or may not give you what you want to full-blown high-end tools which combine dashboard reporting with sophisticated data analysis capabilities.
Quick and easy comes with limitations in the data sources you can use, and the degree to which you can manipulate data after import. There's usually a short-list of presentation choices, often a million miles from data visualisation best practice. At the high-end comes complexity, a steep learning curve, and ¿ watch out ¿ stratospheric pricing.
Here's where ClicData excels: for an exceptionally modest price, you get connections to a long list of data sources that would satisfy all but the most unusual of requirements. You get ample options to segment, merge and manipulate data post import. You also get an ever-increasing number of customisable reporting widgets. Most importantly, in an area where most other solutions fail, you can set up your own customised templates and present your data in such a way that its easily interpreted. Yes, this is one online reporting suite capable of producing results that would even earn approval from Edward Tufte and Stephen Few.
Is there a downside to ClicData? Only if you don't have the time to invest in setting things up properly at the start and learning how to get the most out of this clever program. That time will pay enormous dividend, while not requiring the programming and analytics skills that other platforms do.
Of course, as with any platform, just how long your set up takes will depend on what you are trying to achieve, and how much time you want to spend in getting things perfect. But what's outstanding about ClicData is that you can produce perfect interactive dashboards, and at a price that will get quick approval from your accounting department.
Customisation options, flexibility, price.
Could also offer simple template-driven solutions for those with simple needs looking for a push-button solution.
Choosing what's right for you in dashboard reporting can be time-consuming but if you think ClicData might suit you, it should be on your shortlist.

Combining Data Manipulation AND Dashboards in one solution is great!
Data Manipulation: You need to learn SQL for many of the Data Transformations. I'm okay at VBA and had ZERO SQL experience coming into ClicData. I'm getting better at SQL but could only imagine what I could do if I knew SQL better.
Data Refresh: Our data auto updates with with scheduled refreshes with cloud services (SFDC, Smartsheet) and through scheduled emails with attached data from our LMS (Data by Email).
Dashboards: I had zero experience creating dashboards before ClicData. As with anything I¿ve improved vastly over time. When I need a new dashboard, I just select an existing one that is close to what I want, hit `Duplicate¿ and change the data source(s). Super simple.
I am able to amaze my coworkers on a regular basis thanks to ClicData.
I cannot recommend it enough.
Combines Data Manipulation and Dashboards. Flexibility. Setup once and everything auto updates.
It's hard to call it a con, but not having a SQL person really slowed us down.
If you have a SQL person on staff, do yourself a favor & give it a try. If not, take a few courses on SQL so you'll be better prepared.
Eric from VMS | Insight
Really good tool with many possibilities however simple to use. Support is outstanding: helpdesk and consultants are friendly, capable and willing to help you out. With regard to its pricing one of the best to choose from I think.

Both the product, which keeps growing, and the technical support are great to work with. I love the product and will continue to use it.
Ease of use, Ease of access.
Some Queries require rather complex data selections and thereby require complex syntax.
Matthew from Emkrom
Using ClicData has been a fantastic experience, the dashboards have been easy to create with great technical support if needed. We have also requested new features in the past which ClicData have implemented. Brilliant Platform , Brilliant Support.
Jim from PiiQ
Employees number: 2-10 employees
From the day I signed up for the free trial to today, ClicData has been amazing to work with, both in terms of the software and the support. The software is extremely easy to use and provides me with all the functionality I need to build beautiful reports and dashboards and I was able to get my first dashboard up and running within hours of getting started with no training other than what was available on their support pages. When I did run into questions about how to do certain things, I submitted my request through their online ticketing system and received the help I was looking for in a very timely manner. Their support staff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and responsive in both email and over the phone. Although there may be some perceived limits in functionality, I have not found that to be an issue and am able to do everything I need, including some more advanced things I wasn't expecting to be supported. Additionally, the pace of innovation at ClicData appears to be such that any gaps that do exist, won't exist for long as this software just keeps getting better and better with each new release. Don't let the price tag fool you... this product is everything you need to meet you reporting needs and is great value for money, especially when you consider that you don't need any servers, data warehouses, or locally installed software.
Ease of use
Licenses are required for secured viewing of reports and dashboards (named users), but given the price, it's not that big of a deal.
Check it out before spending orders of magnitude more on the big players in the market. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Martin from Lee Hecht Harrison
Employees number: 1,001-5,000 employees
I have used this product through the products entire evolution and I have nothing but great things to say. It is easy for users to use and manage while flexible enough to integrate into any simple or complex environment.
Ease of use and great support.
