LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2016) - New features in Klipfolio cloud-based dashboards make it easier than ever to create business dashboards. A new "type-in" formula bar reduces the number of steps it takes to build formulas, provides better guidance on formula building, and makes formula building more efficient. New group, filter, sort and aggregate functionality frees users from having to manually build those functions into formulas.
Klipfolio will be hosting a product launch event September 14, 2016 at 10:00 am EST and will also be attending London MeasureCamp.
"These product improvements are part of our ongoing effort to make it faster and easier for anyone to build powerful data visualizations with Klipfolio," said Allan Wille, Klipfolio's CEO. "Users just point and click their way through the menus, while the work gets done behind the scenes. Users don't have to write lengthy formulas. This makes building dashboards more accessible to business users."
Early customer feedback on the type-in formula bar has been positive, especially among Excel super users like Tony Lu, a Klipfolio customer and Time Inc. analytics consultant. "The new type-in formula bar totally changes the way I design my dashboards," said Lu. "This new function natively understands the everyday formulas that I would use in Excel, and updates the tables/charts accordingly. I can see this function will dramatically reduce my time to build powerful formulas."
Klipfolio is working hard to make business data and business insights more accessible to more people. In today's data-driven world, learning to quickly create your own data visualizations and dashboards is a real business advantage, but it's an advantage that has traditionally only been available to large businesses with big budgets and IT departments. Klipfolio's mission is to empower small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to leverage their business data the same way. Other recent product updates have focused on simplifying and speeding up the process of building custom data visualizations and dashboards. This all happens without IT support and without breaking the bank.
Klipfolio's new type-in formula bar allows users to type directly into the formula bar, reducing the number of steps it takes to build formulas. When users start typing, suggested functions and parameters are displayed and can be easily selected. Pop-up Help windows provide examples and parameters for each function.
New group, filter, sort and aggregate functionality further simplifies the process of building data visualizations with Klipfolio. Users can now point and click to apply these functions via user-friendly context menus, rather than inputting the functions into complex formulas.
Klipfolio's mission is to make it fast, easy and affordable for business users to build and share real-time dashboards in the cloud - enabling them to move from quarterly reflective management to continual performance optimization. Klipfolio has more than 6000 customers including marketing agencies, financial services, healthcare, consumer goods and not-for-profits organizations.
