    Started a discussion this morning on my Google Partners Community ('Running An Agency' category):
    "Using AdWords scripts, are 3rd-party 'dashboard' packages worth the $20/month per user to automate reporting process to clients? Checked out Klipfolio shared at a Meet Up by #VanSEM +Sempra: "Punching Above Your Digital Ad-Spend Weight" presented by Alan Amerault from Cardinal Path (headquarter here in Vancouver BC). "
    I included one of the excellent slides with proper sources mentioned as provided by Alan Amerault hoping that way, it did not infringe intellectual property rights. Otherwise, let me know and I could take it down...

    Alan made a great presentation and shared valuable information about how to use Google AdWords scripts to automate reporting process and make custom visualization. He also invited to try using scripts that were developed at Cardinal Path for free. Thanks, Alan!
