InsightDials is an industry-specific SaaS business intelligence tool, where key metrics from your day-to-day tools can be visualized on a central no-code platform and are easily and securely made available to the respective teams. Thus, helping organizations to be truly data-driven. 


How InsightDials help? 

Startups & SMBs have unused data spread across multiple customer touchpoints, which has a lot of valuable insights about their business. This is not effectively analyzed due to the time required, the complexity involved in data analytics, and the issue of scattered data across multiple tools. This data if properly analyzed can help these organizations take timely actions, stay on track and grow their business.  

Most organizations use excel or other self-service BI tools, which require technical knowledge of the tool as well as the database structure of the applications you are using. Also, most small organizations do not know what metrics to track. All this is stopping SMBs from embracing analytics. 

InsightDials platform aims to solve this by making analytics automated, simple, and easy. Thereby making relevant data available to every department securely under a central platform with ease.  

They currently have integrations with WHMCS, Tawk. to, and Google analytics and a lot more in the pipeline (like QuickBooks, Blesta, HostBill, ClientExec, Zoho, FreshDesk, Nagios, Olark, etc). So, if you are having trouble getting your key metrics from your WHMCS data then try out InsightDials to keep track of your real-time metrics, round the clock. They are available on the WHMCS Market place as well.

Why should you choose InsightDials for your Web hosting business intelligence? 

In most small and medium organizations either data analytics is rarely done or they do basic analytics in excel. This often limits the organizations from making data-driven decisions. Managing analytics in excel requires expertise in excel, it is time-consuming, and also data has to be exported from multiple day-to-day applications and fed into excel regularly. This is time-consuming and complex and a lot of human effort is involved. This manual analytics takes on an average approximately 2 hours per day per team to collate and analyse their data. Also, there are high chances of excel files getting corrupted or mismanaged due to larger data handling. 

In other organizations where analytics is done, data often rests with a few in the organization, mostly the IT team or a data scientist. Data is not freely available to all in the organization. This creates data aristocracy and the different teams do not have access to their relevant data. 

This is where InsightDials no-code business intelligence comes as a lifesaver.

What are their drawbacks? 

Though InsightDials makes the analytic journey fully automated; you will not be able to view the metrics from a tool out of their integration list.

Also, since the product is in the MVP stage the tool integrations are limited at this stage. However, they claim to have more tool integrations coming soon.

Being a SaaS platform, they have a subscription-based pricing plan. They offer the plans/subscriptions, based on the number of user access, department dashboards, and other features.

Additionally, they, have a custom plan that will be tailor-made based on specific requirements, data size, and revenue. Also, there is a free trial plan for 14 days, that will enable users to try out the application.
