Dashboard module functions

Dashboard, as one of the Business Intelligence tools, collects, analyzes and presents business data to support your decision-making process.

  • In one place, the Dashboard displays information about processes in your company so managers can quickly make decisions.
  • You keep track of events in real time, which allows you to react immediately.
  • Data analysis will help you identify areas which require improvement, monitor costs more effectively and improve overall operational efficiency.
  • The data displayed on the Dashboard is chosen by you - you decide which information is the most important at a particular moment. 
Information in the Dashboard module is displayed with the use of widgets. Widgets are interactive elements. They allow you to adjust the appearance and the contents according to your preferences. They display data both for both company and particular users, orderers or contractors, as well as archival and real-time data.
