QuickScore - Strategy Map

Create strategy maps easily

Once you’ve built your balanced scorecard, creating a strategy map is easy.  You just select, move and resize coloured bubbles that represent your strategic objectives. QuickScore automatically updates the bubbles’ colours based on your latest performance data.

Strategy maps are great for seeing how well you’re performing at a glance.  If you want more detailed information, just click on one of the coloured bubbles to drill down.

Create dashboards

You can create many different types of dashboard using objects including; performance measure, objectives, perspectives, initiatives, reports, in fact you can add any object that has been created elsewhere in the application.  Just select the object to add it, then move and resize to create the dashboard you need.  You can even select notes previously added to your metrics or objectives.

Embed dashboards into websites

You don’t even have to go to the application to see your dashboards!  Version 2.7 allows you to generate a link or a code snippet, you can embed your dashboard on any web page and allow anyone to see them.

QuickScore - Personal Alert Centre

Add alerts to stay informed

Once you’ve built your balanced scorecard, creating an attractive strategy map is easy.  You just move and resize coloured bubbles that represent your strategic objectives. QuickScore automatically updates the bubbles’ colours based on your latest performance data.

Strategic management is not something done once a year, it is important to keep on top of things all the time.  Alerts can keep you informed of changes daily, weekly or monthly

Bookmarks for quick information

The first thing you see when you log in is a list of your favourite screens. With one mouse click you can see all of your red metrics, check the latest sales numbers, or glance at the safety dashboard. You decide what is important.

As a matter of fact, some people never leave the bookmarks section at all.  They spend a few minutes every morning reviewing their three or four favourite screens and then get to work.

Drill down to details

If you want to see what’s going on behind the scenes of a dashboard or report, just click to drill down. You can get to the root of the problem by viewing underlying data, analysing metric trends, and reading other people’s comments

QuickScore - Powerful Search Function

Search for anything, instantly

You can also jump directly to what you’re looking for by searching. Just type a word or phrase into the search box to quickly find reports, dashboards, or even individual metrics.

Score your metrics

In order to compare different metrics against each other, they need to be scored.  QuickScore supports all kinds of ways to score your metrics, including no scoring at all.

One of the more interesting types are the stabilize metrics.  They have their highest score in the middle and are used when you want to avoid values that are too low or too high.

Many ways to update

QuickScore makes it easy to pull metric data from your existing databases and spreadsheets.  You decide a schedule, and your metrics update automatically.

Of course you can always update your metrics manually too.  Our software can even send reminder emails if you forget.

QuickScore - Multiple Score Metric Types

QuickScore - Traditional row and column reports

Instant aggregation

You may update your metric values monthly or weekly, but there are many more ways to view your data.  If you choose to view things quarterly or yearly, the software will instantly show your aggregated totals.  It’s able to do this by pre-calculating your data so that everything is ready when you need it.

Calculated metrics

Metric values and thresholds can be calculated from any other metric value or threshold.  This can greatly reduce the number of metrics that need to be updated because a single metric update can set off a chain reaction of calculations.

For example, you can make a metric’s monthly value be the average of several other metrics’ values.  Or, you could make a metric’s yearly goal be the previous year’s actual value plus 5%.  The sky’s the limit.

Track goals over time

In addition to metric values, we also track your thresholds over time.  This is important because your performance goals today are not always the same as they were yesterday.

If you look at the chart on the right you can see a spike in the background colours.  That’s because both the goal and red flag thresholds were increased for August.

QuickScore - Free-form Dashboard Designer

A true free form canvas

Our dashboards look a lot like Microsoft PowerPoint™ slides. Each one starts out as a blank canvas, and you add things like charts, gauges, and data tables.

With our free form design you’re not forced to align things in rows or columns like you are with other dashboard products.  You can resize and move things anywhere until they look just right.

The big difference  is that once you create a dashboard, it automatically updates in real-time based on your latest data.  It’s like having magical slides that are always up-to-date and always available on the web.

 

Export everything

We love the web, but we know that sometimes you need to work other places too.  That’s why we developed our dashboards to export to a variety of formats including PowerPoint, Word, Acrobat, and JPEG.

When you export to PowerPoint, the dashboard objects are fully editable too.  You can change text, add new things from PowerPoint, and rearrange objects to look great on your slide.

and finally… free online training

To get you started, we’ve created over a dozen videos teach you how to use QuickScore.  They’re completely free to view on-line to watch at your convenience.  You don’t even have to give us any information.

If you’re interested in a more personalized approach, we also have several live training options available at competitive rates.  You can take one-on-one sessions with our trainers on-line.  You can schedule a class at our Winchester offices.  We can even come to you for multi-day on-site engagements.
