There’s no question that Excel is an extremely valuable tool for organizing data. But it’s often tough to process exactly what you’re looking at when you have seemingly endless rows of data. And if you aren’t able to easily read what you’re looking at, how can you explain it to someone so they’ll understand?
No business should have to spend days analyzing the data on a single Excel spreadsheet!
It’s hard to make Excel more visually appealing and insightful. The good news is that dashboards pose an effective and efficient solution – taking all those Excel spreadsheets and visualizing it for faster, more intuitive analyses and widespread understandability.
By transitioning from boring and incomprehensible spreadsheets to engaging dashboards, you can:
1. Quickly Access All Your Excel Data
Whatever data format you use, dashboards can mix it, match it and use it to find correlations you never knew existed. We have over a dozen built-in connectors – including Microsoft Excel – to accommodate popular formats.
Using our unique data integrator tool, you can sync and merge data from different formats – such as .XLS, .CSV, .SQL and more.
2. Easily Create Dashboards
You don’t need to be a programmer to use dashboards. In fact, if you’ve ever used a program where you “click and drag” from one place to another, you’re well on your way. With iDashboards Excel Data Assistant, any Excel user can easily import their data and create interactive charts. Like thousands of our customers, you’ll soon be building cool and custom dashboards with nothing but a little training and your own creativity!
If you’re presenting information internally, you’re not going to make as big of an impact if you hand out a stack of spreadsheets. With a data visualization dashboard, you can show your time-restricted CEO exactly what he needs to see, while still leaving time for questions.
