Technology has done some amazing things in streamlining the way that traditional businesses are able to operate. We tend to see the technological advantages of new gadgets and software as stand alone items, but other businesses that didn’t always rely on nifty technology are finding efficiencies through dashboards.
Having a good dashboard that shows traffic, contacts, sales, and a plethora of other pieces of data give businesses the information they need to make intelligent decisions about their business. For example, restaurants are not known for being technology companies. Dashboards such as iDashboards help restaurants manage their inventory, staffing, and marketing from a single arena.
Even businesses that have been traditionally somewhat technical such as car dealers are finding more benefits in efficiencies through dashboards. Complex manual activities such as posting inventory to Craiglist or eBay Motors have been made simpler through software, but it’s often hard to track the results. This is where dashboards make it easier. Automotive vendor LotVantage has combined the ease of posting inventory through software with the tracking capabilities of a robust dashboard. This gives dealers the ability to post as well as know how effective their posting really is.
Time is the key factor with business efficiency. There are plenty of technologies that make things easier to do, but they don’t always make it easier to track. This is where strong dashboards come into play to save time while making the business intelligence stronger.
