In order to formulate the need-to-know questions and make business decisions based on effective analysis, managers need to understand their critical performance goals and metrics.
However, most organisations store their management information in a wide range of disparate business systems, including accounting, CRM, logistics, HR and payroll, and even in spreadsheets and flat files. As a result, producing an accurate and relevant management report is a time-consuming, costly exercise, hampered by the difficulty of merging different sources of data together, resulting in a report which is out of date by the time it is received and is presented in a format that is difficult to use.
Managers need a solution that presents “the bigger picture”, allowing them to instantly see potential issues that may affect performance and enabling them to spot trends and opportunities, so they can take a coordinated approach to decision-making that enhances operational effectiveness.
Business Intelligence dashboards empower managers in their quest to better serve the business, by helping to align corporate goals and strategy, improve efficiency and provide the timely insights required to help an organisation focus on planning ahead, rather than reacting to issues retrospectively.
Intuitive Dashboards is an award-winning dashboard solution which allows senior managers to view and share key management information easily, delivering a single, consolidated and real-time perspective of an organisation’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), presented in a graphical dashboard format.
Users can create their own interactive dashboard view of business data, based upon the metrics and KPIs that matter most to their function or service line. Unlike traditional business intelligence solutions, Intuitive Dashboards is intuitive, extremely easy-to-use and highly configurable. It also offers ultra-fast implementation, typically taking just a matter of days for users to be up and running, swiftly delivering business benefits and ROI.
Using Intuitive Dashboards, business managers quickly gain an accurate, real-time view of the entire organisation, specific operational areas of their business and individual staff performance. Intuitive Dashboards seamlessly integrates with the entire Advanced Business Solutions product suite including OpenAccounts, OpenHR and OpenPeople, V1 document management software, and a vast array of other business systems, databases, spreadsheets and even flat files, so users instantly gain a single point of access to the wealth of business insight that already exists within their organisation. As a result, senior managers are empowered to make faster, more accurate decisions that drive enhanced performance across the entire business.
Offering proactive alerts, users receive advanced warning of potential shortfalls in performance, and it also enables the user to drill-down to the underlying data source with just a few mouse clicks, so that the root cause of potential issues can be identified and remedial action can be taken.
