"The switch to Klipfolio upgraded every aspect of our data visualization and analysis. While Google Data Studio has some automated data features, it simply does not compare to the robust tool set Klipfolio brings to the table."

How can Klipfolio boost your reporting power with Data Studio?
As you can probably guess, Google Data Studio excels in working with Google app data. The platform is primarily aimed to be a complementary product to their cloud platform, whereas Klipfolio's focus is providing users with a holistic view into all their data.
So… Where does Klipfolio come in?
While Data Studio puts its emphasis on reports, Klipfolio is all about enabling you to implement a data-driven mindset.
Simply put, Klipfolio makes collaboration easier by allowing you to share reports more widely, involve more team members, and control who has access to what. Coupled with 100s of integrations, Klipfolio opens the door to monitor your success and create dashboards featuring every angle.
Google Data Studio does have some limited capabilities to combine (up to 5) data sources in a single visualization. Klipfolio, though, understands that key data can come from a plethora of platforms.
We ensure that visualizing relevant data together - even from many different sources - is a seamless process.
Klipfolio dashboards enable - and encourage - self-service reporting. Other team members can dive into dashboards and explore the metrics they care about with the dimensions they need.
With Google Data Studio, the ability to explore in this manner is limited. Though, they do have a feature which allows users to explore a simplified version of a single data source in the studio.
