The problem: Building metrics is painful 🤬
You have more data and tools to make decisions with than ever before. But if you want to build a metric from scratch, why has the following flow remained the same for decades?
- Google "how to calculate customer acquisition cost"
- Export data from your Hubspot, Quickbooks, and Stripe into CSVs
- Join the data, do some aggregations, create a chart, screenshot, and share
- Refresh CSVs with the latest data the next time you need to provide an update
The current state of the art is to set up a data warehouse, design your models, and then build your charts in a BI tool - or hire data experts to do it for you. But you might not have thousands of dollars to spend or the months required to implement.
With Templates you can short-circuit this painful process and get you the data you need to make decisions instantly.
What are Templates? 📊
Last month, we announced that Canvas supports integrations to over a hundred apps in addition to our standard warehouse integrations. With these integrations, you can now build dashboards with live data from popular apps like Stripe, Hubspot, and Google Ads without a warehouse.
Now it's even easier for you to build dashboards from multiple apps in minutes with Templates. Instead of manually joining tables together, performing aggregations, and constructing charts, you can now use our out-of-the-box templates to automatically generate the tables and charts you need in seconds, not hours.
Who’s it for?👩💼
You’re looking to centralize and combine data from your apps. You don’t want to spend thousands of dollars or wait months hiring data experts and implementing a data stack.
How’s it work? 🛠️
We've modeled the most popular metrics operators want to build, so you don't have to go through the painful exercise above. Once you connect your apps, you'll see pre-modeled tables containing all of the columns you need to slice and dice and charts of the most popular metrics you want to see.
What’s next? 🗺️
We’re launching with financial health templates for apps like Stripe, Quickbooks, and more. We’ll continue to launch new templates each month for more of the most popular apps you use every day.
