Implementing a Performance Dashboard To Save Managers Time


Implementing a Performance Dashboard To Save Managers Time


Managers were spending hours doing tedious manual importing of data into spreadsheets in order to produce the reports they needed to run the business.  We streamlined the data gathering methods and implemented an online Performance Dashboard for hundreds of managers and executives.

Client Challenge

Leadership was not getting timely information because data sources used different indexes so managers and operations teams spent many hours a week manually inserting data into spreadsheets.

  • Account teams did not maximize or leverage high-impact channels
  • Adjustments to territory reports hampered by data variations
