Review of Parabola 2.0

We've been using Parabola for a few years and it's changed the way we do business. Parabola has allowed us to streamline and automate our manual sales operations processes, and do more with the free time that was created. We've been able to build automation flows without any coding experience and without borrowing engineering time. It's super easy. Whenever anything comes up internally, we often first ask, "I wonder if we can do this in Parabola?" Most of the time, the answer is yes. Definitely worth checking out if you're spending a lot of your day in spreadsheets. The potential is really left up to your imagination. Great product, great team.

Review of Parabola 2.0

Once everything is connected, the application is incredibly powerful.

Highly recommended for anyone with many data sources who needs to run analysis & share it with people who should not have access to the underlaying data, but the aggregate results/analysis.

Review of Parabola 2.0
We've been using for 3+ months and can not yet recommend, but believe Parabola has created a compelling, if not fully realized reporting and data automation platform. Though it shows great promise, our implementation of the tool (incorporating 3 to 5 "flows" from various data sources) proved maddeningly frustrating, owing to its wobbly integration with Salesforce, the connection to which breaks each time it attempts to run a report. (All of our Parabola "flows" incorporate data from Salesforce; so in fairness, non-Salesforce users' experience may be far rosier.) Reestablishing the connection is simple enough, but takes 3-4 minutes each time. For a daily report, this becomes tiresome pretty quickly, and greatly diminishes the tool's value as an automation solution for sales ops (or at least Salesforce) intensive applications. That said, it does have an engaging interface - and if you enjoy building reports and setting up data flows, you'll enjoy using the product. This is especially true if you enjoy the sheer Groundhog Day repetitiveness of re-architecting a report each time you need it run. The product isn't supposed to work this way, as Parabola has pointed out to us over the course of a multi-month support thread, during which they've been responsive but admittedly stumped in fixing this basic issue: the platform can not sustain a connection to Salesforce. Parabola could have volunteered to adjust our bill after acknowledging the issue, which we think would have been best, but to their credit, did agree with us when we suggested some adjustment would be appropriate. (They offered a $50 reduction of our ~$150 monthly tab on *future* invoices - but not those corresponding to our time of suffering.) Which brings up another point - Parabola isn't cheap. Based on our experience, the price outruns the value; that said, Parabola's pride in their solution isn't misplaced. While we can't yet recommend Parabola to our sales ops audience, we're also not cancelling our account, given how tantalizingly close they seem to putting all the pieces together. Solving for the integration issue might not be trivial (given the troubleshooting time invested in our account alone), but once solved, this otherwise solid platform and knockout UI will turn some heads. Getting Parabola from here to there is a path we wish were less parabolic, but for now, our interest is outstripping our impatience. We'll have a more comprehensive review later this month at salesmanagement.org.

Review of Parabola 2.0

I have found this really really helpful ! I have had a spreadsheet for 6 month with so much data that needed separating out into different cells would take me days, weeks if i did it manually or or getting very messy with excel formulas that I really didn't understand. I just uploaded my file, clicked on a few of the icons processes, told it what i wanted in the criteria, then bam! done. I'd like to see a process for organising Files and folders. file structures can get preting messy after a few years, a process to reorganise would be great. Some extra Excel formulas in a box to make it even more powerful Love it, please keep adding to its library of functions
