Comparing BI dashboard tools

So you’re in the market for a BI dashboard tool. Which means you probably already know that the best dashboards will deliver data in a quick and easy-to-understand manner that allows your business to make effective decisions in real time. 

Additionally, most businesses operate with vast amounts of (primarily) useless or underwhelming data. The most effective and powerful BI dashboards will move your company out of the gunk of insufficient data into a world of resplendent data. *cough cough*

The more powerful your dashboards, the more accurate your operational and strategic decisions will be. 

Instead of manually compiling data spreadsheets, BI dashboards access, gather, analyze, and display data from functions across your business, creating opportunities to make more accurate decisions. 

What should you look for in a BI dashboard?

The best business intelligence tools utilize the data generated by the tools your company is already using and elevate it to an actionable and accurate point that drives your business forward.

That all sounds good, but what does that look like practically? Here are a few key markers to help you identify a BI dashboard tool that will positively impact your business. 

Accurate and reliable data

The usefulness of a BI dashboard is dependent on its ability to deliver the correct information to your company when it’s needed. But what good is data if it isn’t accurate every time?

You want to look for robust filtering options, data manipulation, and the ability to connect the data points you need. The most impactful dashboards deliver focused data to specific areas of your business on time and with immaculate accuracy. 

Easy-to-read and functional visualization

BI dashboards are useless if your business can’t read or access the data from the dashboard. Having an easy-to-read and functional display allows your company to utilize robust data in quick decision-making moments that accurately impact your company.

Real-time data

Your business intelligence is only as good as its most recent data. Without real-time access to data, your business is left guessing, making decisions based on past data rather than what’s happening now. 

With real-time access to data, everyone in your business can make the best decision at any moment. 

These are simply a few key features to look out for. Even if one factor is missing, the entire platform can be out of sync, leaving you wanting more.

Putting features to work

Finding the ideal BI dashboard for your company comes down to understanding how the product’s features impact your business. 

Resplendent Data offers features that hone in on delivering business data that drives growth. Our magical modifiers and filters allow you to connect, manipulate, and sync data points from different sources to produce the most impactful reporting for your needs. 

You control exactly what data points you see and where, ensuring you have what you need when you need it.

For example:

  • Users can modify and join ConnectWise datasets, allowing you to see project tickets in one widget. 
  • Shareable dashboard links allow members to view data insights without creating an account
  • Display external webpages on dashboards

These features are just a few of many that deliver solutions tailored specifically to your businesses’ needs. 


At the end of the day, having the best solution for your business shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. And paying a higher price for a less-than-ideal solution isn’t beneficial. You should expect the right solution to fit your practical needs and budget. 

Here’s a glance at the pricing for each solution.
