A sales monitoring executive dashboard from the dashboard team at dundas.com, the maker of those gorgeous dials, gauges and graphing components. It's always a pleasure to feature their work, as their enterprise dashboards and kpi graphics are so pleasing to the eye. This sales dashboard shows sales by country with a large map graphic that drills down to show the sales director of each region. Clicking on a state changes the portlets on the right side of the page to show that state's revenue details. We have a quarterly graph and a monthly graph showing current and year-ago sales numbers. The bottom of the executive dashboard shows team performance against their quotas. Selection of regions is done via a dropdown box.
Homework: Now that you have easy to use components to show your key performance indicators, it's time to figure out what kpis to actually show and manage from. Start your studies with these books on sales management.
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 enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) 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 of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com.
