Hopefully it'll soon be written up as a customer success story but just wanted to share it here first.

Data is only useful if you can do something with it. data on Geckboard

Businesses thrive on data and we need faster access to it than ever before.  The higher quality, more accurate the information you have at your fingertips the better.

There are a now a range of tools now to help you visualise complex data on a real time basis, available as either installed software (such as Tableau) on your machine or as hosted solutions (such as Geckoboard).

Dashboards help you to keep a regular eye on your businesses vital signs. For instance, how many orders did you receive today vs yesterday, are you website visitor numbers increasing, how many Facebook fans does your company have. The quicker you can see a trend developing the quicker you can take action.

This article summarises a piece of recent work that The Code has been conducting using the Geckoboard data dashboard tool. We recently undertook a project to surface information from our customer relationship management system on the company Geckboard Dashboard as well as a range of other data sources such as Google Analytics, Twitter, PayPal, and other 3rd party sources.
