If you work in a building that checks visitors in and out during the day, you probably need an accurate assessment of how many people are on the premises. You need the information to be accurate, up-to-the minute and easy to read. That’s where dashboards come in useful.
You might think of a dashboard as something which supports an instrument panel in a car to give information about speed, revs, mileage, etc. Now think of something similar on a computer screen, giving you information on other scenarios with a simple, graphical interface.
Dashboards are a major aspect of Business Intelligence, one of the most important tools for gathering, storing, analysing, and providing access to data to help enterprise users make better business decisions.
In the example mentioned above, the Dashboard’s indicator creeps up as someone checks in, falls back as a person checks out, automatically giving exact real-time information about the number of visitors to that building at any one precise moment.
The technology can of course be used for other purposes too, as different departments have different needs. Whilst one department might need instant information about the number of visitors in the building, another will be looking at how rooms are being used, whether room utilisation is greater in the morning or the afternoon. Meanwhile, reservation teams might need to examine who are the worst offenders in booking room space, but then not turning up to use it.
Dashboards on computer desktops to relay live statistics in easy-to-read graphics can be a component of Rendezvous Workspace scheduling software from NFS Technology. The data can be exported as PDF, Word or Excel files at the click of a button, allowing for further data manipulation before importing into a different application
