I love business and technology, and enjoyed this project that combined both aspects by using technology to help small businesses.
What it does
Brings in data from multiple sources/sites, combines them, and provides useful visualizations and tables
How I built it
As a starting point, we built this in Excel, which provides nice visualization tools.
Challenges I ran into
Didn't have real life data or the time to build a code-based program that can show this on a web-interface.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learned a lot about businesses and what could be important for them. I also realized how powerful Excel can be.
What's next for Visualizer for Small Businesses
Developing this in code and transferring it to a web-interface with automated downloads and daily reports. Make it easier to access and drill into different numbers.
