Whether you’re an early stage start-up or a global brand with thousands of employees, you probably have one thing in common: your data processes are unique, ever-changing, and a drain on internal resources. You’re likely living in hard-to-decipher spreadsheets that require manual upkeep, gathering important data from individual emails or PDFs, or waiting on your engineering team to build and maintain your bespoke data processes.
We built Parabola to help non-technical teams automate these critical data processes, no matter how specialized. Folks across operations, marketing, finance, and more use the platform to dramatically reduce time spent on manually collecting and manipulating data.
With this latest release, we’ve added the ability to report on your data, empowering you to show your work more easily with data visualizations. What was once more of an opaque data process is now a shareable dashboard that helps you elevate and contextualize your team’s work. We want to make it easy for your key stakeholders to digest your processes at a high level, and enable them to dive deeper if it serves them.
Think of your favorite BI tool. Now, imagine a less rigid version that doesn’t require engineering resources, and reflects your work as you make changes to your source data. With this release, non-technical customers can harness the reporting power of a BI platform with the flexibility of a spreadsheet.
Here’s how it works: once you’ve built a workflow in Parabola, you can use that data to populate visually engaging dashboards to share and action on internally. Some of our early adopters are using this new feature to track inventory across warehouse locations, better understand their freight audit processes, manage routine forecasting, and power dozens of other use cases.
With visualizations in Parabola, you can:
- Keep everything in one secure platform — from the logic of your workflows to your reporting, to feel confident in the quality of your data and minimize manual work gathering information across systems and spreadsheets.
- Share important data with stakeholders through easy to read metrics that contextualize the output of your workflows and elevate your team’s work.
- Power agile reporting processes to transform ad-hoc analyses — like comparing data week over week — into automated, durable reports.
We’re excited to help our customers access and share the data they need to make better decisions.
