It took a little bit of time to get a beta invite to join, but once we got in, we really liked what we saw. It’s as easy as one-two click to add a widget. From CRM, email, project management, social media, and web analytics, you can click and choose what you want to see.

A clean black look. We built out a simple dashboard below. If you’d like to try this tool out, sign up for a beta, took us a couple weeks to get an invite, but this tool is pretty cool. Give it for a spin if your savvy enough!

  1. As soon as I checked out the site, I thought I was on the 37 Signals site. The design is very similar. I just wish Geckoboard had a free-mium model, to allow you to come up to speed. With a 30 evaluation, the clock is ticking, regardless of how useful the configuration.

  2. Looks great, but will wait to see if this takes off or becomes yet another startup that goes down.

    If only they had a desktop client (a la tweetdeck), that would be really good and I would signup in an instant.

    Does this show any trends? If not, that’s a serious feature they ought to consider!
