But no one can argue that Dashboard reports aren’t valuable and insightful. In case you weren’t already aware, a Dashboard is a collection of mini reports collated into a small and compact form. For some users, this could consist of a handful of graphs depicting membership totals across the business. With the new Data Console this is now a pre-defined and detailed overview of all the key metrics and KPIs that can help you make the right decisions for your club, as opposed to making decisions based on a hunch.
The point is, that Dashboards can be almost anything you need them to be. Often getting started is the most difficult part, not anymore with the NEW EyeQ Data Console.
When using EyeQ, Gladstone’s business intelligence application, users are presented with a huge array of tables and fields. These in-turn are used to answer virtually any question relevant to the data captured by the business. With such a wealth of data at your fingertips, sometimes it can be hard to know where to start especially if you aren't a data guru.
One of the best things about EyeQ is how it’s integrated seamlessly with Microsoft Excel. Using Worksheets, Pivot Tables, Graphs, Slicers and Filters, the choice is yours as to how to present the report.
This is where the new Data Console comes into play. A suite of 5 pre-defined Excel worksheets which provide easily understandable data points, taking away the hassle of creating a dashboard yourself.
