Integrations have landed

Introducing the first of our automated data integrations: Google Analytics.

The latest SimpleKPI update takes the pain out of integrating data from other systems directly into your SimpleKPI account, it’ll now be easier for you to get the information you need at a glance.

With the Google analytics integrations, you can utilise SimpleKPI to take data directly from your Google analytics account and display that in Dashboards, reports and interrogate the data in analytics.

The introduction of integrations also provides the functionality to merge these KPIs within calculated KPIs, bringing together various data from other parts of the business and creating truly insightful and automated KPIs.

More integrations are planned in the coming months as we look to expand the SimpleKPI automated data collection capabilities.

October Update 2014

Today we're making some very important changes to SimpleKPI. We’ve been working on a solution to enhance the way dates are selected across the application, making it easier to select and customise date periods. With the new calendar control you are no longer limited to specific date periods, you can now choose from a selection of present, previous and last with the ability to tailor these selections to your specific needs.

The new calendar control is now live on your SimpleKPI account. Please take it for a test drive and let us know what you think.

You can learn more about the new date control on our support site here.
