"A perfect integration of 17 Xero organisations"

What do you like best?

THe simple fact that all detailed data for any number of organisations can be compiled and managed within SQL in Azure

What do you dislike?

Nothing - it simply does what it says and the support is great during set-up and when I have had needed further advice

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am an Excel and analytics specialist not a full-on systems developer. It is so easy to set up a SQL database (we chose Azure) to receive the data feeds from Blendo. Thereafter you are just working with SQL queries which even I can master for the purposes of integration Power Query loads into Excel dashboards. Power BI would be easy too if needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business where I deployed Blendo operates a bit like a franchise and therefore has many companies. The basic issue with Xero is that there is no way to group company data so we needed to get around this. Access to the full data detail allows full understanding of all businesses in one report drawn from a set of SQL queries. We use Excel and Power Query to load and report the data.

"Blend all your data from different systems easily and create realtime analyses"

What do you like best?

Integrations with all the systems we use. Also we really love the support Blendo provides!

What do you dislike?

There is nothing major. Refresh times could be more than every 15 minutes, but that is something we need only 5 days a month so it is fine to manually turn on the refresh when needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We struggled with consolidation of three entities in our accounting software Xero, seems there is a lack of a reporting tool offering consolidation in the currencies we need. We also have data in Freshdesk and Piperdrive and wanted to create common dashboard using information from all the systems. Thanks to Blendo and their integrations with all our main systems we can have everything very easily in PowerBI which is automatically updating every night so there is no need to update anything manually.

What iPaaS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Liberate your data for faster exploration and better analysis without coding."

What do you like best?

Connecting data in a few clicks and knowing it will be connected ongoing.

What do you dislike?

The service is brilliant. The one thing that could be improved would to be showing the progress of the first time import as where there is a lot of data this can take a while.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use blendo to select data from API connections and store that data for faster access and to get at dat athat would need coding to connect to APIs otherwise. We also used Blendo to back-up data when leaving a cloud service -data that would have been lost otherwise - Blendo used the API to grab everything we wanted and place into a database.

"Boosted our productivity"

What do you like best?

- quick setup

- really rich data model

- it works flawlessly

- awesome support

What do you dislike?

Nothing yet. Maybe that there is room for an "onbarding wizard" to guide you through when you start. However, their support was pretty fast and effective all the times I needed them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a shot, their extra friendly support will answer all your questions. They have free trial too!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating with Blendo allowed us to get a much better picture of our business while spending much less time to collect the data across the different dashboards.

"This is a well engineered and effective product"

What do you like best?

I've worked with them a few times, and Blendo makes connecting databases extremely easy. It's not so common in the industry.

What do you dislike?

It's less about something i dislike, but rather more honestly the fact that as they go an increase their feature set and data sources it will get better and better still.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a tool to use, it's perfect and fit's all if not most of standard DBs and requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The solution what syncing simple databases like our mailing list, to a complex system like redshift. instead of a bulky solution this was perfect, and while we were onboarding on to, it became evident it can hold various levels of syncing complexity so we just move everything through it.

"Migrating your data and keeping them in sync with confidence"

What do you like best?

With minimal IT involvement anyone can easily move millions of records between different databases/platforms as if he was just copy/pasting an excel sheet.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike, the product's feature set satisfies all our needs and the team is always there to help us make the most of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Blendo is our go to solution when a client asks us to move data in or out from our own platform, making sure that the process goes smoothly is a deal breaker for us and we love the reliability of Blendo.
