It starts small and then turns into something big. AtlasBI.com #analytics #mobilebi

When I launched Atlas Insights in the middle of January 2017, I wasn’t sure what the uptake would be on a new mobile business intelligence solution in the marketplace.  Tableau has a lite client, Microsoft has PowerBI client for its dashboards, but would an entrant be worthy enough to jump into the mix?

After 7 months, Atlas Insights just broke a major milestone of over 500 installs!  That is pretty amazing considering we don’t have the budget that Tableau and Microsoft can spend to build a brand.  The goal was “not to be the first to the market with a product, just make it the better than the rest”.  Atlas Insights is completely different because we focus on a mobile-1st experience with actionable data, first and foremost, while other makes you wade through a sea of dashboards trying to figure out what each chart means.

That’s a powerful statement.  Just how long do you spend staring at a dashboard trying to figure out what it means and what you can to do with it?  Too long.

Atlas Insights – “Turn it on and know what is going on.”

This opportunity doesn’t come along often in your career.  I’m selling the IP and business of Atlas Insights (www.AtlasBI.com).  I’ve already received a couple offers several months ago, but I wasn’t ready yet as I was just getting started.  I love creating software and am beginning to design my next app and I think the opportunity to put the Atlas Insights business and IP into the right hands is now.

That’s right, I’m selling all the IP associated and customer database with it as I’m looking for the right business/persons to take it to the next level.  Do you have a business intelligence solution and no mobilebi option, now you do.  Have an AI platform and need to distribute data out to thousands of people, now you do.  Have a line of business application that needs to get data out to a lot of people, now you do.

Atlas Insights supports the iOS, OSX, Android, Windows and Web platforms.  You can’t rebuild this solution and beat your competitors quicker than acquiring this business.

If you EVER wanted to jump into the mobile app space with the right idea, you’ve come to the right place.  Please contact me here or on LinkedIn and grab it before someone else does.

Regards, Patrick

Still reporting with dashboards? See how AtlasBI.com gives you better & faster business insights

atlasapple

How many if you arrived at work today and the first thing you did was open your browser to browse to an intranet site to see your company dashboards?  Probably less than 1% of you did.  And then, you drilled and sliced and filtered to find your data.  How long did that take you?  Probably more than 15 to 30 minutes.  After a while you probably gave up.  Am I correct?

It is time to throw out the old paradigm of looking at dashboards for company insights and just pull out your phone and quickly, and we mean within seconds, get to the most important data that you and your company cares about.

Atlas Insights is the most effective way to get your most important company metrics out to your employees anywhere they might be in this busy world.

You can download Atlas Insights for iOS, OSX, Android, Windows and Web and take it for a 90-day test drive for FREE without ANY sales person bugging you.

Sharing my app’s download progress and a BIG surprise I found. #analytics #mobilebi #startup

applemac_mobilebi

In June of 2016, I began the effort of building a new mobile business intelligence app called Atlas Insights.  Atlas allows you to take your business metrics and also public metrics with you wherever you might be.  Basically, having your most important metrics available whenever you need them is the mantra .   In October I launched my beta and finished up in December of 2016.  Pretty amazing development speed huh?!  I’ll have another blog on that later.  As I have built this business, I have tried to be transparent and informative via my blog on the startup and software development process as I go along.

In all my years of designing and developing software, one metric all developers want to monitor closely is downloads.  Now with having to support so many platforms from Apple, Google and Microsoft, tracking these stats is actually pretty easy.  Today, I spent time visiting all the app store reporting pages to get a gauge on the downloads for Atlas and I came across VERY surprised.

The following chart is “Installs by Platform“.  Right away you see an amazing slice for Apple!  Now I would say I’m a bit Microsoft biased because I worked there and then I built a business off of them.  Even in my marketing, I’m very balanced in that I market each company platform basically the same.  But I’m just SHOCKED that 75% of my downloads are on the Apple platform.  iPhone you may be thinking?

installsbyplatform

So let’s break it all down to get an understanding of what makes up those slices of the pie. The next chart is “Installs by Device“. Because Apple made up so much of the pie, if we look at the slices you’ll be shocked to see that MAC/OSX has 57% of the installs!  In all my years of doing analytics and dashboards, the MAC users where never on the minds of the developers.  I saw this as an opportunity and produced a MAC client of Atlas Insights and I’ve been overwhelmed with the response.

Isn’t that pretty awesome!?  I’m going to continue to build for all platforms, but I will push the BEST business intelligence experience on the MAC/OSX that there has ever been!

Still emailing your analytics reports to everyone? That is like 1999. AtlasBI.com #mobilebi

prince1999

Did you know that all the big software companies that provide reporting solutions that their technologies are basically the same since 1999?  Seriously, there is really nothing new except for some colors and animated charts.  All they did was take an old approach to business reporting and just redo it with new software development tools and slap a NEW sticker in the corner of the box.  Kind of like TIDE washing detergent, some formula, just a new bottle design.  Gezzzzz….

When I designed and built Atlas Insights, I was looking 10 years ahead on what business need and not back to 1999.  If your old system is “just getting you by”, then it is time to step-up and try something new.  Visit AtlasBI.com and download any of our apps for iOS, MAC, Android and Windows and get started making your business agile.
