About Mode

Mode’s White-Label Embeds make it easy to integrate custom, interactive analytics directly into your WordPress site.

Simply connect Mode to your internal data warehouse and write SQL to define the data and metrics you want to present to your customers, partners, or employees.

Then create and configure interactive charts, PDF and CSV exports, or completely custom visualizations to deliver insights from your WordPress site.

Mode takes care of the hassles of connecting your data infrastructure, from querying to visualizing and reporting. It also handles user authentication for you, to ensure that you’re serving the right data to the right people. Check out the guide to getting started with White-Label Embeds to learn more about how they work.
