"I am passionate about the power of analytics to fuel business growth and increase competitiveness. Every day, Klipfolio customers use our solution to drive intelligent, data-driven business action," said Mollot. "Klipfolio’s magic comes from the combination of three key elements, ability for the business to design and build their Klipfolio dashboard without IT, native access to 100s of data sources and the ability to mash those data sources together into single visualizations and a remarkably low per-user price point of $20/user. I’m really looking forward to working with Allan and his team to continue to drive forward Klipfolio’s demonstrated market momentum and tell the Klipfolio story to a global audience."
