Why customers chose Cumul.io over Looker?

Johan Vosloo

CEO at Headspace Technologies

“Embedding dashboards and graphs with Cumul.io is as simple as copy-pasting a one-liner JavaScript code. If you can manage a Google tracking script, you can manage this! I also loved that there's no SQL editor that you first have to wrangle to get something out.”

Lead Application Architect at ProSoccerData

“We've tried out the common data visualization tools, but none of those tools offered the ease-of-use that Cumul.io could offer. Our business colleagues simply love the drag & drop editor, and our developers can integrate the dashboards in just a few lines of code.”

Deploy a powerful reporting module in no time.

Looker has a steep learning curve. Creating & embedding dashboards will cost time. With Cumul.io, our customers build their first dashboard in a couple of hours, and integrate it in 1 day.

No more writing SQL

You don't need a data scientist to create powerful & good-looking dashboards. No need to write SQL queries. Linking data, editing hierarchies, building dashboards,... it can all be done with our intuitive UI!

Integrate dashboards in a few lines of code

Create dashboards in a flash with our drag & drop editor. Integrate them in your platform, by simply copy-pasting a short code snippet in your SaaS application. You're up & running in minutes!

Embed securely in your SaaS platform

Enjoy the benefits of token-based security. When a user logs in to your platform, dashboards are automatically pre-filtered per client to show the relevant data. You decide which data your customers get to see.

Forget complex interfaces.

For developers, the integration is smooth & fast. But also as a business user, it couldn’t be easier to build the dashboards. Cumul.io’s interface is built to help anyone find their way through their data. Step by step.

The most intuitive editor

Anyone can build the dashboards with our easy drag & drop dashboard editor. Even the more complex tasks like linking datasets, creating hierarchies or adding derived columns are child’s play in Cumul.io.

No training needed for your team

Your team has no experience with dashboarding? No need to organize full-day BI trainings. In our onboarding course, you’ll learn all the ins & outs of our platform in under 30 minutes.

Everything in 1 cloud app

No need to download a desktop version of our software. Everything is possible in our cloud app: from building to sharing, and even more advanced analytical features like linking datasets.

An affordable alternative to Looker.

For growing organizations, Looker is often too expensive to get started. With Cumul.io's pay-per-session model, you only pay for what's actually used, allowing you to scale as you grow.

Pay per session vs. user

No fixed fees per user. With Cumul.io, you’ll only pay for actual sessions on your dashboard. Your license includes a default number of sessions, and you just pay per supplementary session ‘outside bundle’.

Don’t worry about node scaling

Our pricing is not dependent on how many users you have, so no need to think upfront about the reporting servers you’ll need to pay for.

Monetize the data in your platform

Offer our dashboard integration to customers in premium pricing tiers, and generate new revenue for your business. Or benefit from revenue-sharing: fully white label our dashboard editor & let customers build dashboards themselves.
