What is a Dashboard?

You may have heard the term ‘dashboard’ around the office. A dashboard is a graphical user interface that allows you, the user, a place to view data, and the interface, at a glance. The data generally will provide key performance indicators or KPIs. This is the data or information relevant to your objective.

To be more simplified, it is an “area” where “users” can log in and interact with data.

A very well-known dashboard that you may be using regularly includes Google Analytics. You log in, and it displays the data that provides information about activity on a website.

During the pandemic, dashboards became quite popular. Though many businesses had been using them for some time, the move to work at home brought the need for more custom dashboards for company collaborations and team collaborations to the forefront.

Productivity has been increased, and workflow has continued despite the widespread workforce using these great dashboards. Keeping all the information, the group needs accessible in one place keeps everyone on track.

The Metrics Maze Mess

As a business, gathering and presenting data transparent and interpretable to the user, today's business metrics without it looking like you are trying to make number sausage isn't easy. It takes a lot of specialized tools, often that need to work together.

Dashboards use various tools in the background to scan, analyze and prepare data into reports, graphs, and other presentations so that employees can act on the information provided. For example, the metrics can help employees fulfill contractor orders, provide specific tooling or details on new products being produced, or help pinpoint bottlenecks or losses.

For many years the mess on many managers' desks was spreadsheets; the metrics maze could be endless and leave some areas overlooked. Today's company data can be neatly presented onscreen, offices look fantastic, and nothing is left to chance.
