Display your data with style using Yodeck and Cumul.io

Cumul with Yodeck

One of the best ways to make better business decisions is to use the right data. Better still, what if that vital data is constantly visible to decision makers and employees? Hopefully you can see where I’m going with this.

That’s right, data dashboards. They are all the rage and rightly so. Why? Put simply, combined with digital signage, they are easily among the best means to display data in an office or workspace. In short, an ideal solution for businesses.

Make the most out of your data

In these fast-paced times, being data driven is no longer optional. It’s pretty much compulsory, and increasing numbers of businesses are realizing this. By displaying your dashboards on a TV monitor or LFD (large format display) you make the most out of your data. Those tangible KPI’s and actionable insights are readily on hand, and there for all to see. This is a great way to stay on top of things.

In fact, there are so many reasons to use data dashboards in your office or workspace. We tend to agree with these three common reasons:

Trust and reliability – Yes, using your instinct is important, but the majority of important decisions require cold, hard data.

Motivation – By displaying relevant KPIs on business performance, sales teams can get an instant picture. Boost motivation and productivity.

Time – Save time on generating reports by showing the relevant information on screens.

As we possess a tendency to go one step further, let’s also add a fourth “fundamental” reason – Transparency. All business stakeholders can be exposed to the information you want to show. As well as encouraging efficient data sharing between various departments, it can also create a positive “we’re all in this together” camaraderie attitude. So you can say goodbye to the “silo” mentality.

Hello Cumul.io

And because, much like Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, we love it when a plan comes together, let us introduce you to a perfect example of such a combination. Cumul.io. It’s a platform which does an exceptional job of data dashboards and analysis. In brief, it’s an easy-to-use (sound familiar?) data intelligence platform. It’s aim is to help businesses turn data into actionable insights by themselves. Quickly.

We may be a bit biased, but we believe that combining it with Yodeck creates a clear case for form and function coming together in perfect harmony.

How to use Yodeck with Cumul.io

Right now you’re probably thinking “OK, how can I use Cumul.io with Yodeck and start showing my dashboards on screens?”

Nothing is easier. Check out Cumul.io’s guidelines on setting up and also watch our quick video guide below:

You can install Yodeck on a standard Raspberry Pi, or you can buy a pre-installed Yodeck Playbox. Remember, Yodeck is free for 1 monitor, while you also get hardware for free when you sign up to an annual subscription for multiple screens. And of course, you can easily manage all of your displays from any location.

One final extra special tip from our friends at Cumul.io. When configuring your dashboards in Yodeck, use the private URLs of your Cumul.io dashboards, and make sure you enable the Chromium option.

Now, get started and display your data in style. Enjoy!
