Accessibility of data is an important and often challenging aspect for any business. Communicating the right information to the right people, at the right times, increases efficiency, productivity, and the overall health of the company—while problems with communication and data organization can bring everything tumbling down.
Online dashboards help to organize and streamline your business by keeping everything updated in one place, with flexible permissions that ensure the right people have access to the right information.
What is an online dashboard?
Just as the dashboard of a vehicle gives you all the essential information you need at a glance, an online dashboard offers a convenient, intuitive way to pilot your business. These tools are hosted online, and display a customized set of performance indicators and KPIs (key performance indicators) that are relevant to your business.
Online dashboards use intuitive, easy to understand display interfaces, such as charts, graphs, grids, and gauges. Data fed through a dashboard is updated in real time, so you’ll always have a finger on the pulse of your business—without having to dig through files and emails to find key information.
Benefits of online dashboards
Any type of business can realize the advantages of using a dashboard to track vital information. Having a single, centralized source for your most important data saves everyone a lot of time—and in business, time is money.
Most dashboards are provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and hosted online. This means you can access your dashboard from anywhere with an Internet connection: your work or home computer, mobile phone, or tablet device. It also means there’s no software to install, and no IT maintenance.
Another benefit of an online dashboard is the ability to set permissions. For example, you can create custom dashboard displays that feed different data to employees, managers, department heads, accounting staff, or even outside vendors. Permissions help to ensure that information is communicated in a timely and efficient manner, on a need-to-know basis.
