Real-time Business Dashboard Geckoboard Launches

Geckoboard, a real-time business analytics dashboard we covered previously, has officially come out of beta and been given a price tag.

Businesses can plug a wide variety of data widgets into Geckoboard, giving them an overview of important metrics in one simple interface, which can be displayed on desktops, smart phones, tablets or a large television that might be hanging in the office. It has built-in integrations with a number of commonly-used Web apps and services, in addition to customizable widgets from any data source in XML, JSON or any plain old RSS feed.

As an example, you might have one box showing the latest page view count from Google Analytics, another box showing recent tweets mentioning your brand, and yet another box displaying project information from BaseCamp. The product integrates with over 20 different popular Web services for project management, email, social media, CRM, finance and Web analytics.

The number of out-of-the-box integrations has grown since we first reviewed Geckoboard while it was in beta, but it could still be greater. Notably missing from the “social media” tab is Facebook, for instance.

While peeling back the beta label, Geckoboard’s creators are also unveiling its plans and pricing. The pricing is tiered, based on the rate at which your widgets are refreshed with new data. Additionally, the price tag grows depending on the number of devices you use to view Geckoboard. The plans start at $9 per month, with a 20% discount for those who signed up to serve as beta testers.
