Dashthis And Oviond: Stacking Up The Software

When it comes to presenting marketing data in manner that is both visually pleasing and easy to understand, less is often more, and focusing on the bigger picture can set a reporting platform apart.Dash This Software is one of the more aesthetically pleasing reporting tools on the market, offering a simple, engaging platform for presenting reports and creating beautiful dashboards.

Dash This overview

The name is quite telling when it comes to the software’s main offering: Dash This’ dashboards are their name and their game.The platform offers 3 different dashboard options, which become reports after setup: The Periodic dashboard, which shows stats from certain periods of time (daily, monthly, quarterly and so on); the Rolling dashboard, which shows stats on a continuous basis in your given timeframe; and the Campaign dashboard, which tracks specific campaign performance over a specified timeframe.These dashboards can then be customized using either the 9 pre-set widget chart types or custom widget options, through the drag and drop widget placement. Customizing widgets is an important consideration, but that the platform didn’t always meet our expectations in this regard. We found the custom widget function difficult to use at times and when resizing or moving widgets we noticed that they often got stuck or muddled on the page. Additionally, widgets cannot be assigned different dates and the entire report or dashboard can only span one date range.

Dash This does allow integrations with most of the major data source software and digital marketing tools available, and allows for CSV data file imports for custom data, but, in our experience, the complexity of the platform can make it confusing or difficult to handle further integrations after the in initial setup. However, there are tutorial videos on the various aspects of using Dash This’ software available.

Overall, the platform covers all of the bases, with report templates that span social media, email marketing, PPC and Ecommerce, report sharing and automation, email and video support, and competitive pricing (ranging from $33-$499 per month, depending on the number of dashboards used). We also felt that Dash This was somewhat limited in terms of what one has access to in the standard subscriptions, with white labelling only available as a premium add-on at all pricing levels.
