What are Business Dashboards?
Business dashboards, also referred to as financial dashboards, help you stay on top of your business. They’re called “dashboards” because they are meant to provide you with key information on one page where you can conveniently access it – much like the control panel or dashboard of a car. Dashboards help you “drive” your business decisions by keeping important information front and center.
Cutting-edge financial dashboards include moveable mini applications known as widgets, short for “window gadgets.” Widgets mine your activity for data and present it as bite-sized business intelligence – data you can interpret and use to make important decisions. For example, a widget may include your 5 top selling products and services and their cumulative sales totals. Knowing your top products and services gives you insight into what your customers are buying so you can expand your offerings and meet the markets demands.
Why should I use a Business Dashboard?
If you are like most small business owners, you have a lot on your plate. You are juggling everything from sales and marketing to customer relations and order fulfillment, from purchasing to vendor relations, facilities and equipment maintenance, employee recruiting and hiring, payroll and firing, government compliance… the list goes on and on. You don’t always have the time to examine your business reports but you still need to make decisions, lots of them and quickly.
Information + Insight = Control of Your Future
Financial dashboards take the work out of working the numbers and help you make better decisions for your business faster because they take your data as you enter it and transform details into meaningful, concise summaries you can understand. And when you understand your business, you can make your decisions confidently.
