A number of my customers have told me why they chose Analytics Edge over Supermetrics.
In some cases, it is for corporate compliance reasons; Analytics Edge does not have any access to your account credentials or data. There is no intermediate server storing your account information or processing your data. Those customers are simply not allowed to have their corporate data pass through third-party servers without a full and regular compliance audit, and Analytics Edge is the perfect solution.
In some cases, they like the speed; your computer makes queries direct to the API servers at Google or Microsoft or Facebook, and it can’t get any faster than that. There is no intermediate server slowing things down. They have seen dramatic improvements in downloading large data sets or refreshing reports with hundreds of queries.
Some cite the reliability of Analytics Edge; there aren’t any outages caused by shared server overloads or updates. No dramatic slow downs at the beginning of the month. There is nothing worse than your reporting tool failing on the day your reports are due.
For some people, Analytics Edge is a significantly less expensive option; small agencies and freelancers with lots of clients especially find the no-account-limit, no-query-limit licensing of Analytics Edge makes it possible to automate reports for all of their clients, even if they get very little cash for their effort.
And some love the way they can get more done in less time — Analytics Edge was purpose-built to save you time creating and updating your reports. The Analytics Edge Core Add-in lets you automate both the download and the analysis of your data so you don’t have to struggle with formulas and scripts. We all have something better to do than building or refreshing reports.
Finally, since Analytics Edge connectors make the queries direct to the API servers, there are no product-imposed limits holding you back. All connectors support unlimited accounts and all the queries the API can handle. Since there is no shared intermediate server, there is no reason to slow you down or limit your activity.
