It's a wrap: Zebra BI’s year in review

By Nina Franceskin • Last updated

December is here and we’ve been so busy working on exciting new projects (hint, hint!) we almost missed it. So before we say goodbye to 2022 and focus on the challenges ahead, let’s just take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and what we’ve accomplished, in large part thanks to your support.

Let’s talk numbers. Zebra BI currently counts around 1.5 million users and 3,000 clients from 114 countries around the world. We’re super happy to be able to help such an extraordinary number of people up their reporting game, be it in Power BI or Office.

As far as the products go, we’ve delivered 2 huge upgrades and a ton of exciting new features that have enabled you to produce actionable reports faster than ever before. Check out our year-in-review video for more info on our journey👇

Zebra BI Tables 6.0 upgrade

Zebra BI Tables 6.0: the fastest custom matrix visual

This year, we released the highly anticipated Zebra BI Tables 6.0. The all-new version of our flagship product came with an insane performance update, making your data loading time in tables with hierarchies up to 50x faster.

This has established Tables 6.0 as the fastest custom matrix visual ever created and brought us another step closer to helping you make your reports truly actionable. Your feedback on this has been incredible! We’re super thankful to have you cheer us on & thrilled the new release has had such a huge impact on your daily work.

Zebra BI for Office delivers Actionable Reporting to Excel and PowerPoint users

Zebra BI for Office: a game-changer for modern reporting

Having delivered Actionable Reporting to the Power BI community, it was high time we had done the same for Excel users everywhere. Although an incredibly useful reporting tool, Excel was in desperate need of an upgrade. Plain lists of numbers with an occasional graph just didn't cut it anymore.

That’s why the launch of Zebra BI for Office was another huge step for us. The all-new tool has elevated native Excel and PowerPoint visualizations and facilitated data democratization, delivering actionable insights to Office users everywhere. Your phenomenal feedback has exceeded all our expectations, making all our hard work so, so worth the effort.
