Power BI has a powerful, yet very complex API. With Cumul.io, you don't need to sacrifice ease-of-use to take advantage of powerful integration options.

Integrate dashboards in a few lines of code

Use our drag & drop editor to create dashboards in a flash. To integrate them in your platform, just add a short code snippet to your SaaS application. We'll handle all the complexity.

We integrate in any platform

Avoid vendor lock-in. With a Cumul.io integration, you can keep using the technologies you love most. Make use of your own authentication systems, and easily connect data from any data source. Use your preferred stack!

Always in sync with your platform

Choose for a truly seamless integration. Cumul.io communicates directly with your platform, by using temporary tokens. Never worry again about duplicating roles & users from your platform to ours. We handle the complicated stuff.

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.

100% customizable dashboards.

Your customers deserve only the best. Beautiful dashboards, that fit perfectly into your application’s style & branding. When it comes to styling & customization, Cumul.io has no limits.

Optimize for every device

Your app is used on mobile, desktop & tablet, but you don’t want to create 3 different dashboards? No need. Cumul.io dashboards are automatically responsive. In addition, you can easily make subtle changes per device.

Dashboards in multiple languages

You have customers from all over the world? Serve them in their own language: our dashboards are multilingual. We support over X languages. ¡Guay! N’est-ce pas?

Completely customize to your branding

Make your integration 100% seamless: embed a white labeled version of Cumul.io in your platform. Your end users won’t even notice any difference. Fully customize the logo & colors to your branding.

An affordable alternative to Power BI.

For growing organizations, Power BI 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’.

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.

Why customers chose Cumul.io over Power BI?

Michael Mattan

Lead Application Architect at ProSoccerData

“We've looked at Power BI, at Tableau, 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.”

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!”
