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.
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.
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.
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!
Well now that our last release is behind us here at Dasheroo, there’s a new one coming! We’re going to be adding a new pricing tier between FREE and $19 so be on the lookout for that. We’re also working on performance for your dashboards, killing some nasty bugs some users have experienced (sorry!), and our new integration with one of our most requested apps, Active Campaign, CRM for small business.
We think that we boosted performance for loading your dashboards by anywhere from 10-20%. So you should see your dashboards loading at a quicker pace. Thanks James! He’ll be looking at a few other places in our code where we can optimize performance. Everybody needs a speedy dashboard.
We’re doing some research on what new insights for QuickBooks Online users might want. We even asked our own internal accountants to weigh in. More on that as we know more.
Thanks to Nivi for reaching out to all customers who have asked for multi metric tracking in a Google Sheet. If you don’t know about it, it’s awesome.
Our summer started slow but man did it end on a high note. We got the most new customers in a given month ever. And Mimi killed it with her sales number as well. Way to go!
September is gearing up to be bigger and better so we have to get back to work!
We’ve been talking about it and it’s finally here! Check out all of the new insights and dashboards Dasheroo has to offer.
New to Google Sheets Dashboard
Now you can track multiple KPIs on ONE chart in your dashboard, up to 5 in fact. So if you want to see how one metric is performing right alongside others, this is the way to do it.
QuickBooks Online (QBO)
We familiarized ourselves with yet another integration that we think is strategically important, QuickBooks Online! After all it is one of the leading small business accounting software packages out there. We already show you what’s happening with Sales and Marketing on your dashboards from a myriad of integrations, but tracking money out and revenue in for marketing and sales is also important. So to start we’re giving you three insights from QuickBooks to add to your Dasheroo dashboard.
- Profit and Loss – View a trending line of income and expenses for your business in the given time period.
- Customer Balance – View the amount owed by your customers broken down by due and past due.
- Income and Expenses – View your high level profit and loss details for the given time period.
Ever wanted to know what we’ve been working on right from within the Dasheroo application? I know, sometimes you’re too busy to get yourself to the blog…well we’ll get you there! Just click on “What’s New” in the app and you’ll see exactly what we’ve been up to.
More to come!
Thanks 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.
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.
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!
