Why customers chose Cumul.io over Periscope Data?

Michael Mattan

Lead Application Architect at ProSoccerData

“We've tried out lots of 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.”

Johan Vosloo

CEO at Headspace Technologies

“For authenticated users, the API allows you to securely embed views, pre-filtered to relevant data of each user. Perfect for a Saas platform. Embedding dashboards and graphs is as simple as copy-pasting a one-liner JavaScript code. If you can manage a Google tracking script, you can manage this!”

Read their story

The API-first alternative to Periscope Data.

Periscope Data is powerful. But without a full-featured API, you'll miss out on a lot of flexibility. Cumul.io is loved by many for its open & flexible API, combined with the easiest user interface.

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!

Fully manage dashboards & datasets via API

Have more flexibility when building & embedding dashboards. Cumul.io lets you programmatically do anything you can do from the UI: create & manage dashboards, datasets, connections. At scale.

The easiest UI to build & embed dashboards

Don't know how to code? Create dashboards in a flash with our drag & drop editor. Embed them in your platform, by simply copy-pasting a short code snippet. You're up & running in minutes!

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 Periscope Data.

For organizations with lots of users & lots of data, Periscope Data can get very expensive. 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’.

No price rise as your data grows

Cumul.io's pricing is not dependent on how many data you have. Keep your data stored on your end, and never worry about price hikes with growing data volumes.

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.
