With rich drilldown detail, portability, dynamic interaction and ease of use within a robust dashboard framework, the dashboard is a higher-level distillation and organization of data layered on top of the company’s proven Web Tracking visibility. IES states that its goal is to provide an overall snapshot in one system while still drilling down to the basics.
Andrew Bullen, President and CEO of IES, Ltd. explains, “We've combined the best of business intelligence platforms, the best of dashboard products and the very best in development in one offering. A dynamic dashboard was our number-one goal; however, the real challenge was compressing all of the data and delivering it in a single dashboard. True KPI functionality is achieved when vendor analytics, utilization, carrier statistics, and delivery accuracy are conveyed in real time.
There is a strong return when business users can instantly access, analyze and drilldown through a wealth of data. We believe that herein lies the key to understanding business efficacy.
We envision being more than just a commonly referenced ‘one-stop shop’ for facts and figures. Instead, it is our goal to be more of a go-to resource that acts as a sounding board for your business— a portal to information. As we look toward 2011 and beyond, we hope you agree that technology is one of the essential components to information and one of the key facets to long-term success. Our goal is to be your gateway to trade information.
Success is just as inherent in the specifics as it is in higher-level processes. Overall, our plan is twofold. We want to provide our customers both with a top-level dashboard view, but also realize that it’s essential to optimize every day operational tasks. Imagine an online mapping system where you can zoom-out to a world view, but can just as easily zoom-in to street level detail. Now, picture this same tool applied to your business. The higher-level view is equally as important as the operational specifics. Both perspectives are key to overall understanding.
Decision makers need to see certain key indicators and multiple comparative sets of data in parallel without changing context or focus. Essentially, this allows them to assess higher-level performance indicators while visualizing the intricacies of their business. The IES iView Web Dashboard is representative of this vision.”
