Powerful CRM for Marketing

Performance marketing company develops CRM solution, with robust reporting tool with Ninox & Nioxus

Decision Support

Leedia is a performance marketing agency based in Italy. Spearheaded by their CEO, Andrea Mascheroni, they advertise with the aim to generate leads for brokers in the trading industry, specifically focusing on people interested in investing online. Their methods include native advertising,
email and SMS marketing, and display advertising.


Data overload required a new system

The marketing industry requires a wide range of CRM and reporting tools to make the most of a client’s budget. Advertising requires a lot of data collection and analysis to make accurate decisions in a limited timeframe. Initially, Leedia was relying on Google Sheets to store and manually analyze all of their data. They struggled with duplicate and inaccurate information, and found it challenging to sift through and analyze so much data on a regular basis. So, Andrea began to search for a more efficient, connected, and customizable CRM solution for Leedia.


10% time freed up

Once Andrea found Ninox, he decided to test it out. He was impressed with the expansive capabilities of Ninox, but knew that it might be complicated to build the CRM he needed to run his business. That’s when he reached out to Nioxus to request the development of a custom solution that would meet all of Leedia’s complex needs.

With the power of Ninox and the expertise of Nioxus, Leedia was able to implement a CRM solution that organized their data and automatically sorted out bad or duplicate leads. Using ReportsPLUS by Nioxus, Leedia’s team could now easily visualize their data on a daily basis without any of the previous inefficiencies.

Andrea estimates they were allocating approximately 10% of their time per week to data analysis prior to switching to Ninox and ReportsPLUS by Nioxus.


With Ninox, Nioxus, and ReportsPLUS, Leedia received both a CRM solution and an analytics and business intelligence platform in one that saved them countless hours and resources. Now, their marketing team can instantly access crucial and detailed reports to drive advertising tactics, budget, and overall decision making. They no longer have to waste time analyzing masses of data by hand. Their team can also have faith in their data, knowing it is accurate, relevant, and delivered on a timely basis.

Andrea believes this has been priceless for their business, and looks forward to Leedia’s next project with Nioxus, involving connecting ReportsPLUS to other marketing programs that they have in use.

Exporting Records, Importing Into a New Database and Linking Them with Their Parents

By David Gyenes, Director of IT

This task is not as complicated as it seems. It has three parts:  Exporting the tables with the correct information, importing the records with the crucial information into a couple of new fields and then linking them together. Let’s see step-by-step:

Exporting the Tables:
1.  Export the parent table with its ID.
2.  In the child table create a formula that shows the parent table ID (‘Parent Table’.id) then export.

Importing the Tables:
1.  In the parent table create a field called ‘Historical ID’ and import the old parent table ID into this.
2.  In the child table create a field called ‘Parent Historical ID’ and import the parent’s old parent record ID here.

Link the Tables Together:
1.  Use the “update multiple records” in the child table. For the parent link field chose “assign Calculated Value” and apply this code:
2.  let xID := ‘Parent Historical ID’;
3.  first((select Customer)[‘Historical ID’ = xID])

Just Jim

By Jim Harris, Stargazer

I have been thinking about the Learning Lab all this week and obsessively reminiscing about it.

All the classes from the Learning Lab are paying off, not only for me, but for so many of you. Many of the folks that I can recall that had started with smaller databases are now creating even larger ones (and many of you are helping each other as well which is such a beautiful thing). We are proud that we have helped the Ninox community also!

When I first purchased Ninox via the App store, I didn’t know what to expect. I kept spending money that I didn’t have in things like File Maker Pro, Access, Bento, Tap Forms, etc. Although File Maker was great, it was too expensive and there just was not much in the way of database applications for Mac.

Enter Ninox into my life!!! At first, I could not understand the entire concept and to make things worse, the Ninox manual and the webinars from Germany at that time were not working for me. Trying to learn on my own, meant this was going to be one hell of a steep learning curve.

Then I happened to browse the internet and eventually found Nioxus. I signed up hoping that the beginners’ class would be exactly what I was looking for. After the 90-minute class, I was totally and forever hooked. This completely changed my life. Nioxus has become part of my life, and all for the good.

So how has your life changed since you have been using Ninox? How has Nioxus helped you and what would you like to see next? We would love to hear from you. Don’t forget that there will not be a Learning Lab this week because of the special Ninox/Nioxus Webinar this coming Thursday, May 20th at 10:00am ET and 4:00pm CET. Please join us!
