Scoreboard or QuickScore?
What’s the difference between Scoreboard and QuickScore? Very little! Where Quickscore has menu items related to the Balanced Scorecard, Scoreboard uses a generic business language. If you prefer the terms Perspective and Measure try QuickScore. If you prefer the terms Performance Area and KPI try Scoreboard.
Create Stylish KPI Dashboards
KPI Dashboards can be created using any of the data you have added to the system. This includes the metrics from your scorecards, graphs, strategy maps and images. The drag and drop interface means your KPI dashboards can be created in minutes. And don’t forget – they will be updated automatically whenever you update your scorecards – KPI software means no more PowerPoint!

In addition, with Scoreboard, performance thresholds can be changed and tracked as well. Bear in mind business performance goals may not be the same today as they were yesterday.
Clarity of purpose – what you need and when you need it.
All of the screens presented in Scoreboard have one thing in mind – to give you what you want, when you need it. This clarity of purpose is the main aim of Scoreboard. No distractions, just the information you need to run your business.
Spreadsheet Styled Reports
If you prefer to work with numbers rather than dials and graphs then Scoreboard has a point-and-click report generator. You can build as many row and column reports as you like. These can be filtered to include or exclude all of the elements that make up your scorecard.

KPI Software and KPI Management
Scoreboard is aimed at organisations that want to simply record and manage their KPI effectively. Scoreboard is one of the world’s most acclaimed KPI Managers. Scoreboard makes it easy for you to set up a Scorecard and not concern yourself with structure or terminology.
For some organisations it is more important to consolidate their KPIs into a KPI dashboard or several KPI dashboards. A dashboard gives you the ability to select measures and display them together or build a comparison. KPI management requires users to look at many pieces of information to allow them to make sensible decisions. It is vital that any anomalies are investigated with reference to related measures and not looked at in isolation. This is where a system like Scoreboard can add significant value.
Any KPI dashboard software is only as good as the KPIs or performance measures that are added to the system. Key Performance Indicators take many forms but are usually the high-level indicators of an organisation that relates to overall health. They also tend to be related to a strategic outlook, that is, to something that the organisation is aspiring to achieve. Typical KPI examples in the financial function might be Revenue and Profit. In a Customer related function, they might be Sales Volume or Customer Satisfaction or Net Promoter Value. When associated with internal processes examples might be Order Fulfilment or Rework Level or Time to Market. When looking at people you will find Employee Satisfaction or Revenue Per Employee. There are many KPIs that are ‘standard’ for any organisation. For a good starting point read Bernard Marr’s book; Key Performance Indicators, The 75 measures every manager needs to know.
If you would prefer to use a KPI or scorecard manager that uses the Balanced Scorecard methodology, then our Balanced Scorecard product, QuickScore might be a better fit for your organisation. QuickScore uses the balanced scorecard performance language. For example, where QuickScore would use the term Perspective to describe a group of objectives, Scoreboard uses the term Key Performance Area. Apart from the differences in terminology, the applications are exactly the same.
Whereas we believe the Balanced Scorecard methodology has great strengths, we recognise that many organisations have been grappling with strategy for decades and have created their own methodologies. These methodologies may provide competitive advantage so we have provided Scoreboard as a neutral business performance manager. This will allow you to concentrate on strategy rather than the tool.
