"You can expect what you inspect." - W. Edwards Deming

When running a business one of the things you notice quickly is that the things you measure are the things that tend to get better over time. If you focus on revenue, then revenue will likely go up. If you focus on users, then users will likely go up. If you focus on profits, then profits will likely go up. So the trick is being able to easily measure core business metrics and have quick access to them.

That is why tools like Geckoboard are so valuable. Geckoboard lets you easily gather data from various web tools and track them in a dashboard that is easily accessible on any device from giant TV monitors to iPhones.

Today we are announcing the Zapier integration with Geckoboard. Geckoboard already has a large library of widgets, but for anything that Geckoboard doesn't support out of the box Zapier has got your back.
