Metrics, KPIs and statistics at your fingertips

Using the power of Kinabase's computed fields, you can calculate averages, sums, and other statistics across your collections. Whether it is your internal operations, customer interactions or any other KPIs, Kinabase provides aggregations to gain insights about your data.

Set up aggregations to track the total value of your sales opportunities, or the average duration of your projects, and many more. This is always up-to-date and available in real-time, allowing you to make better informed and data-driven decisions.

Confident calculations and conversions

Kinabase has built-in support for a wide range of mathematical functions, and knowledge of international SI units.

By default, Kinabase will automatically normalise units to ensure consistency across your data, and precision in your calculations. Orders of magnitude are handled automatically, so you can be confident in your data, with no more conversion tables and references required.

Whether you're converting between metric and imperial units, calculating volumes and areas, or doing your expense calculations, you can add calculations and formulas to your computed fields to ensure your data is always accurate.
