Our Story

Our origin story began in 2013 when Marya Kaska with her knowledge of market research and business reporting began a consultancy called Dashboard Vision. Over the decade that followed, the company took part in the evolution of online reporting. Whether it was dashboards, user experience, infographics or presentation tools, we built, learned from our customers, tested and built again.

Building great software became part of our DNA and our team of software engineers expanded to data gurus, market research specialists, UX enthusiasts and project managers.  But we knew we had to focus on one aspect of the data to insights process and do it well. Customers were telling us that getting insights fast and being able to deliver them flexibly were becoming critical to their business. So we built a brand new platform with a core service that helps you explore data quickly, configure and reuse analyses, share them and export to a wide variety of output services.​

“I guess you can say the ‘vision’ in Dashboard Vision changed so we created Datafin to better match our new mission.
