CAMBRIDGE, MA – December 11, 2014 – InsightSquared, provider of next generation business intelligence software as a service, today launched InsightSquared Mobile, its first mobile application, which serves as a companion for the InsightSquared web application. The app was created to put actionable analytics in the hands of InsightSquared’s customers who want to stay connected from anywhere, at any time.
According to a December 2014 survey of over 1,000 workers1, 76% of respondents say their mobile phone is a necessity for their job on a daily basis. InsightSquared has developed its mobile app to help users run their businesses by the numbers, directly from their smartphones. Features include:
– Personalized dashboards that deliver instant access to top reports.
– Built-in-messaging that helps teams communicate and stay aligned.
– Access to key metrics for business leaders and end users to stay connected on-the-go.

InsightSquared Mobile works offline to allow for nonstop workflow—users can check their dashboard while on an airplane or underground in the subway.
“The InsightSquared mobile app puts dashboards in the palm of your hand,” said Jonathan Bunford, Marketing Operations Lead at EventMobi. “Since these are your own dashboards, everyone on the team benefits from the sales team to the marketing team to the CEO. Everyone has the information they want, when they want it.”
