The Usefulness of Dashboards within the ERP

In today’s fast moving business world, it can be easy to lose focus on day-to-day performance. Dashboards within your ERP platform can be helpful in countering this, while providing numerous benefits when it comes to accountability and reporting.

In this blog, we’ll go over a few reasons why you should be utilizing dashboards more in your daily process.

Easy to Interpret

Dashboards are inherently visual data representations, making them easy to interpret in a short amount of time. Various charts, graphs, and tables present data in a way that can show how far ahead (or behind) you are on key performance indicators (KPIs).

Data from a dashboard can help you make more informed business decisions, thanks to real-time information that is presented in an easily digestible format. Not only will you make better decisions, but you can make them more efficiently.

More Accountability Across the Entire Company

One of the biggest advantages of utilizing data dashboards is that they benefit everyone across the company and centralize company goals. Dashboards are a shared space where anyone from the shop floor to the corner office can see real-time status on KPIs.

Role-based dashboards can be customized to keep track of certain KPIs that may end up on a larger company dashboard. C-suite executives may have a dashboard that presents revenue and expenses, while manufacturing employees have a dashboard that has information about raw material supply.

Dashboards Make Reporting Simple

Reporting on a weekly or even daily basis can be a time-consuming process if done manually. ERP dashboards make creating KPI reports easy and painless. Daily status reports are as simple as grabbing some key KPIs that are available at a glance. The visual nature and real-time data that comes from dashboards make presenting reports to superiors within the company, or to clients simple.
