Features and Functionality
What to expect from this system
The application should provide a framework that allows you to build a complete system in days not weeks. System management should be intuitive.t
The ability to build stylish dashboards that link objectives, KPIs and tasks. Providing clarity, enabling you to make quick decisions.
If you are following a balanced scorecard process, the application should be able to auto-generate strategy maps and provide a drill-down to your scorecards.
Dashboards and strategy maps are amazing, but sometimes you just want the raw data. You should be able to create spreadsheets when they are needed.
Being paperless is great, but there will always be times when we need to export a dashboard or a full report. Multi-format export is an essential feature.
You don’t have time to go into the system every hour or every day. You need to be able to set alerts and make the system work for you.
We are used to assigning owners to tasks, but what about objectives and KPIs? Assigning ownership means people will be accountable and get things done.
Data import from any other system should be easy, point and click is ideal. Whether it is from a complex SQL CRM database or a simple spreadsheet
As your system grows it will become more difficult to find what you want. You should be able to tag objects and search with confidence.
A mobile-enabled application is no longer an optional extra! You need to be able to access your data wherever you are and at any time.
Nothing to Install
Why bother going to the trouble of installing and maintaining an application when the provider can do it for you. An installation is an option, not the norm.
Free training should come as part of the package. If it doesn’t, demand that it does! any supplier will provide free training if you buy their system.
