Exciting things are happening at VisualCue. While these changes are still in development they were just so amazing we couldn’t wait to share them with you.

Here are some of the updates you can look forward to in the near future from VisualCue!

Improved Facets

In late September of this year we released VisualCue 2.6. A large part of that release was the introduction of a new way to explore your data with VisualCue through faceted searching. Now, instead of just grouping and sorting by data column you could narrow down your results by a cue or even its color. Suppose you just wanted to see all the salespeople who didn’t perform up to expectation last quarter, or needed to see all of your call center agents with excellent customer satisfaction scores.With VisualCue faceted searching you could find those groups in seconds with no need to pore through a database.

This method of searching isn’t, by any stretch, a new technology. And that’s precisely why we chose it: anyone who has shopped online will immediately recognize it as the way you narrow down your results to just what you want to see. It’s a natural way to navigate enormous data sources.

Facets were so well-received by our users that we decided to improve them even further. In our next release look for improved explore functions with a redesigned interface to make finding the data you want even easier.

Advanced Tile Features

Recently, VisualCue has had an enormous influx of users. We’ve grown from a few hundred at the beginning of the year to thousands by the end of it. While we couldn’t be more thrilled with how people are catching the vision of what intuitive data visualization can do, such a rush created it’s own set of challenges.

Our users told us they wanted a way to create specific Tiles for specific roles in their organization: not everyone needed to see all of the data, all the time. And when our users speak, we listen.

In the next release of VisualCue look for advanced administrator features to easily create new Tiles and set permissions for certain roles within the VisualCue environment.

Redesigned user interface

This is the one we’re most excited about, though it is further in the future.

We’re redesigning our interface to focus on empowering users to take full advantage of VisualCue wherever they are, and that means taking the complete power of VisualCue and improving it for use on mobile devices.

This is a huge project, and it comes with a slew of exciting new features for navigation, exploration and intuitively gaining insight from your data. We’re working hard to bring it to you as soon as possible!

Until next time,

The VisualCrew
