It was not long ago that every firm built their own in-house dashboards. Clients today can still opt to build them in-house and some do — they just don’t deliver as promised. Many of these projects are extremely over budget and behind schedule. This is why we were excited when we heard about a new piece of software that could build dashboards in one business day for $10 per user per month called Retool. Retool has a lite-touch programming interface, which allows business stakeholders to quickly achieve results within one week. Our flagship product, Investment Lab, which is a two-sided marketplace to match investors to models, took over a decade to develop, and the full user interface was built out using Retool in just one week. In short, if you are in a project that is over-budget or behind schedule, we could assist you with an agile project, along with tight timelines, to ease your pain, and get you where you need to be.
