Why you should join Actiondesk

Teams who want to access, explore and understand their data today have two choices:

  • Either they build adhoc reports in google sheets or Excel. These are messy, hard to maintain and not connected directly the data sources
  • Either use a Business Intelligence tool. These take effort to implement, are not flexible and require every single user to go through a steep learning curve.

Our mission at Actiondesk is to let knowledge workers easily access, explore and understand their data, wherever it sits.

We aim to be as easy and flexible as a spreadsheet, and as powerful as a BI tool.
