Chartio reviews from startup founders

Chartio is for our BI. Internally it takes all our data and allows different teams to create charts they need. It makes data a lot easier to consume and is pretty user-friendly. There is a bit of an SQL learning curve but it’s largely manageable.

Chartio provides very clean data visualization. It’s a free form dashboard making tool. I am not super happy with it--it’s quite expensive and I worry about the purpose. I can see how many people did what actions on my site but it’s hard to drive useful insights from these graphs. Sometimes data is interesting but useless because it is not clear why there is conversion.

We switched from Chartio to Periscope because Chartio got very expensive. Also, we did not like how they handled one issue that we had with them. We had an annual commitment, but we were not aware that they were prorating every additional user. We ended up giving them over 10000 dollars, and they would not scale back our account.
