Again, from the Nimsoft dashboard gallery at http://www.nimsoft.com/dashboards/gallery.shtml, here is a dashboard developed to monitor a soda machine. This is for real! As stated, “this creative dashboard was created to monitor the inventory in their office soda machine. It provides real-time visibility necessary to address low inventory levels, and should the unit temperature begin to rise to a warning level, a service person can be contacted before the refrigerated product is compromised.”
So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of business dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s favorite books.
