Square is a financial services company that provides payment aggregator and POS services. From side hustles to enterprise level businesses, Square allows merchants to accept credit and debit card payments for online and in-person sales. Its dashboard feature provides basic analytics helping users to track sales trends and identify repeat customers, but users will find the data from Square alone is insufficient to gain a full picture of their business’s health. With the help of Panoply’s code-free data platform, merchants can finally get a 360 picture of their business. Panoply allows merchants to sync, store, and combine their Square data with other data sources like Facebook Ads, Google Analytics, PowerBI, and Shopify, revealing game-changing analytics and visualizations that go far beyond Square’s basic insights.
With the Shiny (R) open source BI tool from RStudio, users can create their own interactive websites and dashboards. Host your Shiny web applications on your own server or on RStudio’s hosting service. With Shiny, anyone who knows R can design their own web apps without having to learn programming or web development.
The Shiny R package is user friendly, but you still need to do ETL (extract, transfer and load) work to process your data. Adding Panoply takes care of all the ETL for you. Panoply manages that entire process automatically. It seamlessly delivers your latest sorted and cleaned data to your Shiny web apps.
