We help clients succeed by designing and constructing dashboard reports that are meaningful and insightful.
We deliver on the 3 main customer demands:
Insight – deliver more accurate and relevant business insight
Creating dashboards that are attractive but lack insight is a lost opportunity. However, creating insightful dashboards is almost impossible when the underlying data sets are not properly organized, curated, or inter-connected. That’s why most projects require some level of ETL (Extraction, Transformation and Loading) for data sources to be imported and visualized.
We help clients by thoroughly assessing their data sources, infrastructure, visualization tools, and reporting requirements. Then we determine the optimal data structure and processes to deliver the most accurate, insightful visualizations.
Performance – create faster performing dashboards
Studies show that when dashboards take longer than seven seconds to respond to queries, users grow frustrated. Rapid response time is crucial, but it’s not always easy to know why a dashboard performs slowly on load or when interacted with. Performance can be affected by the way the underlying data is organized, the number of data points in the visual, the network and data storage systems, or the overall design.
Our data visualization experts have developed a 33 Point Dashboard Performance Checklist to help clients determine why their dashboards are performing poorly. Our team then recommends and implements the solutions required to achieve exceptional performance results.
Aesthetics – make dashboards visually impactful and user-friendly
Without the proper use of visual precepts dashboards can become confusing, slow to interpret, or even interfere with accurate decision-making. Our experts improve the visual impact and efficacy of client dashboards by adhering to industry best practices as well as our own standardized D3 – Dashboard Design and Development methodology. We make proper use of visual science principals such as alignment, containment, position, color, proximity, enclosure, etc. Resulting dashboards are brimming with insight and easy to understand.
