BlissChart™ - Performance Reporting

Imagine you just finished collecting a thousand forms from customers rating your products & services, what's next? Well, your boss wants to know what's in the forms... in a report! It can take some time, right?...
I stumbled upon a similar task recently, but I decided to get my neurones to work a lot more to give me faster results. I called the solution BlissChart™. It's a web-based app (PHP, MySQL) that reads a database (it could be a single table) and loops through each peace of data, saving distinct values in an array, then iterates each time a value is repeated. Percentage values are computed against total rows in a column. With a simple HTML tweak, a visual graph is added and a complete report is generated. Once you have this app, all you need to do is feed the database, and BlissChart™ will take care of the rest... Now I'm working on export and customization features to add more cool stuff to my app. Check out the picture below.
