Track Our Startup: Active Campaign + More Performance Upgrades

We’re still gearing up for a release hopefully in the next week with Active Campaign, some Google Analytics insights for your Google Dashboard and maybe a new billing tier. Stay tuned.

Customer Success

Alf our VP of Customer Success has set up a “Calendy” campaign where he sends email to our paying customers to see if they need any help with their onboarding experience. If you get an email from him and want to chat take him up on it it’s fun, just schedule a meeting based on when he’s available! Now he’ll be reaching out to people who have gone inactive to see if he can get them active with us again.

Better Performance

James our VP of Engineering worked on another round of performance fixes for dashboard loading. This is an extension of performance fixes he did two weeks ago. He’s addressing the amount it time it takes to load a new new data that comes in the dashboard. Speaking of James, he’s coming to San Francisco this month, always awesome to see him, he lives in Austin. More on our meetings later!

Since we have a bunch in the queue we’re focusing on potentially getting this performance stuff out first in the next few days before our integrations.Active Campaign Apps Marketplace

New Marketplace

We had an awesome meeting with Active Campaign speaking of new integrations. Apparently they are hearing  a lot of requests for Dasheroo. They seem excited to list us for their marketplace but not more excited than us! 

Ok, time to get back to it. Cheers!

Track Our Startup: New Release On the Way

As we told you last week we’ve been busy on our next release for your dashboards due out later this week. What’s new? A bunch!!

New Features for Tracking KPIs On The Way!

The biggest request we get from those who track KPIs on a Google Sheets dashboard is support for tracking multiple KPIs on one sheet. Well in the next release you’ll be able to support FIVE!!

You’ll also get access to these new features right from within your dashboards so every time we do a release it will be even easier to find out all the goodies you’ll have access to.

We’ll also have a few Quickbooks Online insights to add to your dashboards. Now you’ll be able to track KPIs like your P&L right from Dasheroo.

We’re also working to get our Active Campaign dashboard out so you can track all of your marketing KPIs in one spot. That will likely make the release after this one. Great job guys!

We’ve been doing pretty good with our SEO lately. We use a tool called SEM RushSEM Rush - Dasheroo SEO which we really like. It gives us great competitive intel for keywords that other businesses in our space are ranking for. We can easily see where we are plotted next to other businesses. In the chart on the right you can see that we are ranking for the most organic keywords that drive the right targeted traffic. Can you tell we love our graphs and charts here at Dasheroo? 🙂

Alf, our VP of Customer Success, has been busy recovering from the awesome onslaught of user questions and suggestions (which we love) from the Social Media Examiner article last week. It was an awesome article, How to Monitor Multiple Social Media Metrics in a Single Dashboard, thanks again @SMExaminer! We also had a record number of purchases we’ve ever had in a week.

Back to work!

Track Our Startup: Up Next? Google Sheets & Quickbooks Online

social media examiner article: track KPIs in a dashboardThanks to a HUGE mention in a Social Media Examiner article entitled: How to Monitor Multiple Social Media Metrics in a Single Dashboard, we got hundreds of users, a ton of quality leads (Mimi had 8 demos yesterday!) and we’re half way to our new customer goal and it’s only the 10th. Thanks Brandon Olson! He’s the Content Marketing Manager at AWeber, one of our email marketing partners.

UP Next?

Josh and Nivi have been working with James and our developers closely to gear up for our next release which will probably include a bunch of Google Sheets improvements. This will be great to add more metrics to a Google Dashboard along with Google Analytics KPIs and Google Adwords KPIs. We’re also working on a whole new integration with … Quickbooks Online! More on that as we finish up development but it’s going to be cool, very cool.

After that one of our most requested integrations will be released and that’s Active Campaign. For those of you who don’t know them they’ve got a killer marketing automation product which includes email marketing and CRM.

 

Nivi is going to spent this week looking at the Microsoft Excel API. Even though we’re huge Google Sheets users, there’s a ton of you who still heavily use Microsoft. Sigh.

Austin Food Truck: Muy Delicious

There’s Chef Rabin of Muy Delicious!

Austin Food Truck!!

Our own Director of Sales Mimi and her husband have opened up an awesome FOOD TRUCK in Austin called Muy Delicious and boy does it live up to its name. Food trucks are popular there, all kinds of amazing chefs have opened them. What to eat? The Giddy Up’s Burger is to die for, the chicken Rich Ranch Tacos are amazing and My Butler’s Boneless Chicken Wings are a must-eat. If you’re in Austin on Manchaca Rd., you need to stop.

Bye for now!

Track Our Startup: We’re Finally On Vacation

opinions_charts01

This would be a a great addition to Dasheroo dashboards wouldn’t it? 🙂

Ok, we’ve been working pretty hard on your dashboards here at Dasheroo the past year and some of you who have been following us know we’re a distributed company. That said we can work from anywhere as long as we’re all ok with dealing with any customer and company issues from the time zone where that issue occurs. Everyone at Dasheroo is aok with that.

This week we’re happy to announce that one of us is in Hawaii (or is it Hawai’i?) with the family, one of his favorite places on Earth! Another member of the team is in New York visiting family with his family. The quality of life is an important aspect for all of us here at Dasheroo and to the extent we can, we take complete advantage of it.

We are big believers in living life here at Dasheroo and balancing living life with servicing customers and pushing our company along. And we’re doing it. If we could have a gauge in our dashboards for balancing work/life…we would!

So while we’re busy working on the next integrations (Quickbooks, Active Campaign) and supporting the last releases (SendGrid, Facebook Ads, Google Adwords) we’re trying to enjoy our families in the summer months. So should you, life is short.

The Presidential nominations are over (whew!), the Olympics are beginning (yikes for Rio!) and summer is in full swing. Thanks for the support, rest-assured even from a beach or camping with our kids we are still checking in hourly if not more to make sure all of your dashboards are up and running.

Cheers and happy summer!

Track Our Startup: It’s All About Your KPIs

People are on vacation, there might be a summer slowdown for some but not for team Dasheroo! We’re getting you more features to access your KPIs all the time.

SEO

We’re seeing the number of users coming from our organic channel grow slightly whereas before the summer we were were growing a bit more. We expected it and we’re keeping an eye on it! By the way, to all of your SEO specialists out there, goodonya mate! You’ve got to have PATIENCE dealing with how your site ranks in the search engines…PATIENCE, something our CMO does not have 🙂

QA ROCKS

Our QA team has been working on a full regression test. What’s that? That’s where you test every single permutation of what you can do with our application to ensure that any new changes we’ve made (and we’ve made a LOT) all work well together. Court is putting a real emphasis on data integrity which means we just want all of your KPIs on your Dasheroo dashboards to jive with the native application reporting as close as possible. Thanks Court.

Next UP?Dasheroo KPIs

We’ve been working on our next integrations based on what users are telling us. Nivi, our product manager has been knee-deep in researching dashboards for Quickbooks and Active Campaign so you can track those KPIs along with your other metrics.

We’ve also working on requirements on sending dashboards by email so if you can’t get to a web page or your app you can be on top of your KPIs via email.

OK, gotta meeting to get to! Oh and for a guide that helps with important KPIs to track go here!
