Anxious to see how your company is faring in a 24/7 business environment? If you’re like many busy entrepreneurs and managers, you probably don’t have time to click through a dozen or more analytics tools and web-apps looking for various visitor stats, server downtimes, conversion rates, project management updates, and sales quotas each day. When it comes to bringing all of your company’s vital signs onto one main dashboard, Geckoboard does it best.
Whether your company is perfectly healthy or struggling to stay afloat, Geckoboard offers a great way to see a broad overview of how the business is doing at any given time.

Plug in the widgets you need to track your company, or create your own custom widgets to display the types of data and performance stats you really want to track. Almost immediately, your dashboard will be populated with all the relevant information you need to monitor your company’s performance.
