Prebuilt, customizable tools to access business data and APIs

Ever since we started building dashdash, our purpose has always been to “create tools that make computation accessible to everyone”. We want to allow the 1 billion Excel users worldwide to easily build tools catering to their personal and professional needs without code and using a familiar interface — a spreadsheet!

We gave users access to business data and APIs through Integrations with platforms like Crunchbase, LinkedIn, Mailchimp, Google Maps and more. To make it even easier, we introduced Instant Integrations, which allow calling these without the need for API keys or monthly subscriptions. You pay us for just what you consume, up to a monthly limit you define.

And now, to make building tools even easier, we’re launching Templates!
