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.
Paola from Photoventura
Social media and spreadsheet integrations are my favorite tools, along with the fact that a big amount of data refreshes and dashboards are provided across all plans. Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL integrations are also available in the middle package I believe, which have been implemented by my team when we encountered this solution.
When a large number of data refreshes are needed, this solution might become quite pricy really fast. This is the only con I can think about at the time.
Marianna from BAT
easy to connect different databases and reports, as well as to create dashboards.
Friendly and efficient customer support
Customization part of reports is not as powerful as in other tools, while dashboards, though easy, can increase their functionalities
I could quickly and easily distribute reports to a number of users
While I used the free version of ClicData, all the functionality I needed were present. ClicData, even as a new user is easy to use. The reporting data can be uploaded to Clic in the form of a csv. The data can them be manipulated in order to only show the necessary information. There are a range of widgets to display data in an easy and clear format with heatmaps. Multiple different reports can be created, even on the free version. The page layout can be adjusted for different devices i.e desktops, tablets and mobiles. This, paired with the ability to publish and share reports via a URL, allows users to quickly distribute information. While this information is read only, the owner of the report can quickly make amendments which will be reflected instantly in the live URL.
The only downside of the free version is the watermark is always present when reports are published however, while clear, this doesn't distract the user from the information displayed.

The designer interface is very smooth and user friendly. It provides ease of using most of its functionalities and features. Looks and feels are very professional.
Import limits were a bit restrictive for the lower-level paid subscriptions. It would really help to have more diverse pricing options or pay per use model can also work.
David from Roche Pharma

Easy to use functionalities, and dashboard creations, when creating the dashboard and setting it up, you can have it up and running in no time
query builder: the possibility to create queries with multiple data sources is a great addition
limited in functionalities: some functionalities like graphs and tables can be too limited in use
the graphs and add-ons can be a pain to create, as you have to tweak the data to create the graph as you want instead of having a wizard that can help you

Jacquelyn from Your Part-Time Controller, LLC
The ability to more easily explain financial data to board members who aren't financial experts.
I enjoyed the ability to drill down into the data supporting top-level dashboard charts, as well as the ability to link to other applications, like Microsoft Excel and Access.
I thought the import limits were a bit restrictive for the lower-level paid subscriptions. I would have liked more pricing options.
Put up all the required dashboards for the management to review performance, achievements, trends and take necessary decisions. Take off the burden of generating many reports from IT team.
Ability to connect with most of the data sources and the pricing. The support was also very good. Prompt and fast even though we are on the least pricing plan.
Certain times, when the dashboard is loaded with so many data connections, it seems to slowdown, but it's not a very bad thing. something manageable
Sarah from Texas State Aquarium
I like the ability to easily convert excel sheets into visually appealing, easy to understand, shareable dashboards. I also like that ClicData seems to be continuously evolving; they have regular updates that I find to be helpful/ useful changes.
I very much like that there is an api for using Survey Monkey, however I find it to be challenging to use the data from this source without significant manual manipulation. I wish this particular crossover required less attention.

Originally free, and now inexpensive ability to create management dashboards
Customer service has been excellent for me. Any question or issue I've had has been addressed quickly and reliably. Including "how do I do this?" questions.
Can't say I have anything in particular I have complaints about. I created my original dashboards a couple of years ago and now only update the data. There have many updates and new features added I have not taken advantage of yet.
It allowed us to take complex data sets from SQL and create a series of complex cross tabular queries and present them in simple to interpret KPI reports. It is reliable and simple to use once familiar with it and the data loader insures that the data for reports is as up to date as it needs to be.
Its easy to use and gives great flexibility. It allows up to create custom reports and present them in a easy to interpret manner that makes it easy for our supervisors and team members to identify areas for improvement in performance.
I am happy with the software and did not find any major cons. It would be helpful to have had a more detailed user manual that could be downloaded, but the support desk responsiveness more than makes up for this.
Paul from CQIN
Value is the big benefit. There are some features and functionality that are not inherently easy to understand, but it is by far the best value for a data visualization product.
To fully utilize some of the functions that are provided, there is a steep learning curve. Some of the features are not inherently obvious on how to make them do what you want them to do.
Max from Seed&Spark

Reporting and dashboards for our various internal teams that help them track KPIs and take actions to improve the business.
The ability to transform and merge data from disparate sources makes it possible to build dashboards that would otherwise require significant time from our engineering team.
There are two different syntaxes depending on if you're transforming data at the source or in the dashboards, which can be confusing.
Michael from Crestec USA
The ability to see my datasets in one location.
The ability to merge many data sources. We use Google Analytics, Google AdWords, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and custom SQL databases.
Customer support could be improved. Our plan limits us to email support only. Wish we could reach customer support via phone.

Reporting was fantastic - I could take data and visually represent it in a matter of minutes. Easy to use and can be simply automated.
Powerful Visualizations of critical data can be accomplished quickly. I really enjoy how I can turns MB's of data into great graphics.
The product sometimes does not work as I expected - This is probably due to some of the data I have inputed such as blanks and null values.
Nate from SchoolPointe, Inc.
Formulas don't use straight SQL or TSQL
Knowledge Base is limited and vague with a lot of situations
Queries are limited, which limits dashboard capability
Export capabilities are limited
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.
