Dashboard Topic:KPI Report Dashboards and Delivery of KPI Reports.
This series of executive dashboard screenshots from mirus.com focuses on multi-unit restaurant chain management. The first dashboard screenshot shows a layout of KPI portlets showing information like top 5 and bottom 5 coupons redeemed, store sales figures, DMA peformance (demographic marketing area), etc. The reporting dashboard screenshot is a straight-forward, old-school listing of summary rows with red/green/yellow traffic light indicators. The last screenshot shows the configuration of a user-defined alert being subscribed to for email delivery.
Update: For an exciting state-of-the-art way of delivering KPI Reports, consider the “desktop delivery” model. Desktop widget or gadget style applications live at a level above the usual web-based dashboard. Take a look at how companies such as Klipfolio deliver KPI Reports. Rather than rely on a stack of paper reports that you may or may not get to, desktop dashboards bring the KPI metrics right to you when you power on your computer.
So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com.
