What do you like best?

It is so easy and intuitive to create BI dashboards that it is as simple as 1,2,3. The look and feel is great and clean. Controls works as expected and Support is great. The guys at support are eager to help you and resolve your issues. I feel like I am not using a platform company, rather Syncfusion is helping me as a consultant as well! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The sought after and promised 'Web Designer for dashbaords' is still no where to be seen, dashboards performace becomes an issue while handling large amount of data and the limited widgets available by default. We nearly always have to rely on developing custom widgets. Syncfusion really 'need' to add their ej2 charting widget support to dashbaord controls, by default. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Syncfusion Dashbaord Platform is a great product, use it to quickly deploy dashboars, keep up with changing user requirements and to help your BI department for an agile product. However, you may experience dashboard delays while using the dashboard with large datasets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide BI dashboards to our public sector clients, we get to create the initial dashbaords with so much ease and so much convenience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Whilst the product is a little less mature than other similar offering in the market place, it is incredibly simple to use and offers most functionality anyone will need. It can be used via syncfusion cloud, hosted internally or even run from a desktop app which give ultimate flexibility in deployment. Syncfusion support is second to none - the best I have ever experienced with an external software vendor - I rarely wait more than a day to receive fixes or feedback, and they are incredibly accommodating on feature requests. It can also be white labelled for integration within your own products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is very little to dislike. yes, each version sometimes comes with a few bugs, but these are always resolved very quickly - just raise a support request, and it gets done. If I had a criticism (and a very minor one) the data source designer could be improved to more visually represent relationships, but again I've raised this as a feature request and understand it is in the mix. No product is perfect, but compare the cost of this to PowerBI, tableau or similar, and using Syncfusion is a no brainer, unless you have some huge analytical requirements, but then you should be looking at Syncfusions data Analytics tools... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended. Take the free trial and assess against other similar products, but I think syncfusion meets most needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Syncfusion to render dashboards for our clients within our own products. It is so quick and simple to use, are clients are amazed at how we can get them to their data so quickly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

User friendly with wonderful features available for the administrators and developers. I personally recommend this tool to the bigData Scientists who love to play with big data Sets in an organizations.

Another thing i would like to say about this platform is that it is free to try which means that you can test and enjoy the Syncfusion Big Data Platform before you make any decision to purchase it, and i think it is the one best thing i like personally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I did not find anything in the platform which made says that bla bla are not good or not interesting for Administrators or developers in the company. Its true that sometime, my machine go to hang but as per my opinion its the reason of working with too huge data importing to the system. May be there could be anything which is still not used by me nor my other colleagues which making trouble for the players. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Easy of use, very quick deployment and flexibility in delivering very cute dashboards to final users. A very good option if project requires to be hosted in your own servers, compared with all available cloud platforms out there. Connecting directly to OLAP databases is a very appreciated plus. Best option in respect to value for money. One of the best support I have never worked with, efficient and really quick. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Topically, to build a dashboard it would require a lot of time and coding and having to go through a whole development methodology. Syncfusion Dashboard Platform, have simplified dashboards design and made it possible to publish user-friendly dashboards even with little code knowledge.

It was fairly easy to integrate Syncfusion Dashboard Platform to our SQL Server Database and produce real-time reports. It has saved us time and help us focus more on producing quality reports and comprehensive dashboards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Sierra Stults of Bold BI

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with our Dashboard Platform - the product and support teams will be so glad to hear all this!

It’s wonderful that all your needs are met by the Dashboard Platform as it stands now, but we’ll of course keep on working to anticipate your future needs :). The development team will be adding more widgets and support for additional data sources in our upcoming releases – if you have a “wish list” item in the back of your mind, please feel free to let us know via your Direct-Trac account so we can consider the request.

Thanks again for your use of Syncfusion’s products. Here’s to your continued success with them!

Happy dashboarding,
