Massively used in consulting and finance, watefall charts decompose a value into multiple components, showing their relative weight and contribution to the total value.


Power-user lets you build waterfall charts with amazing flexibility:

  • Easily define totals to create waterfalls that can be ascending, descending or both,

  • Show only one series, or cumulate multiple series on the same chart,

  • You chart can even go below the axis,

  • You can easily customize the chart design, changing colors, borders, labels etc.

Power-user's waterfall charts will help you present your data in a visually impactful way. Some typical uses of a waterfall chart are:

  • Displaying all the financial aggregates contributing to a Profit & Loss Statement,

  • Running a gap analysis, explaining visually what factors impacted positively and negatively a specific metric (for instance: activity in year N explained by activity in year N-1, minus churn, plus client acquisitions).

With Power-user, editting or updating waterfall charts is very easy. Our charts are linked to your Excel data, and you can use the edition pane to quickly customize the design or refresh values.

Mekko (or Marimekko) charts may very well be the charts with the highest value for clients in some industries like consulting or finance. It can display the relative segmentation of markets, the relative positioning of different companies, or the decomposition of financial aggregates. Mekkos can show a tremendous lot of information on a single chart, and is a great support for deep analysis in a business meeting, for instance. 

Look at the Mekko chart below. It shows that Product B 3 is the most sold globally, and Product E the least sold. But product D performs very well in France, while product A is the market leader in Germany. The more you look at a Mekko chart, the more you will deduct interesting information about different markets, niche segments, the strategies of companies and competitive positions.
