What is a data dashboard?

Brought to you by 9 Spokes

Generally speaking, a dashboard is a special control panel that can have several applications. For instance, you can find it in a car, where it shows the driver all the info required while using the vehicle. A data dashboard is similar, a tool that gives you the information you need to help you manage your business.

A dashboard can help you make better decisions for your business or startup, providing you with visualisations, business metrics and KPIs all in one place so you know how to manage your business.

A data dashboard is a one-page overview of your business that’s accessible from multiple devices. It provides you with interactive visualisations of your business data in a single page and with real-time progress report of your business KPIs, data and activities.

How it works

A data dashboard allows you to keep track of all your KPIs and other key metrics without any data entry. You just need to connect your favourite cloud-based apps to your data dashboards to start having a visual representation of your business.

When you connect the apps you are already using, your dashboard starts displaying graphs and lists. We call these visualisations “widgets,” and they are customisable and interactive. You can also arrange your widgets in the order that makes sense to you, so you can compare your vital metrics and activities side-by-side.
