Okay...here are some questions we love to answer:

Employee Cycle provides pre-built dashboards for your Greenhouse data, but your account rep can work with you to add any additional metrics or visuals that were not originally included.

How often is my Greenhouse data updated in Employee Cycle?

How do customers get value from Employee Cycle?
