Data alone won’t give you the edge in a hyper-competitive business landscape. Turn information into action and gain data-driven business agility with an online dashboard.
A survey by Harvard Business Review found that 42% of company decision-makers lack confidence in their decisions due to insufficient information or difficult access to it. Worse, only 16% expressed strong confidence in the accuracy of the data they use in making decisions. Research by Dun & Bradstreet also found that 41% of businesses consider “inconsistent data across technologies” as their biggest challenge to maximizing ROI.
It’s no surprise that more businesses are starting to build their own dashboard software to manage data better.
Dashboard reporting gives users a gist of the information fast — usually through visual tools like graphs and charts, instead of massive spreadsheets that contain the tiny pieces of the puzzle.
Online dashboards pull data in real-time, allowing users to view more accurate information. On the other hand, manual reports take time to prepare and may contain outdated information by the time you get them. Web dashboards are also dynamic. They allow users to interact with the data, so they are a better tool than static reports for analysis and projection.
Business dashboards enable managers to get a real-time snapshot of key metrics, making them an indispensable tool for decision-makers. Here are a few reasons why you need online dashboards today.
See all your important company information in one place.
Dashboards pull data from various sources and consolidate everything in a single view. Serving as a centralized information hub, a web dashboard allows decision-makers to see patterns and key performance indicators at a glance — enabling them to make business-critical decisions faster and using data from all relevant sources.
Ensure data consistency across multiple teams.
Different teams within your organization may have their own versions of the same report encoded in different formats and managed in various software. A dashboard, whose view can be customized based on user needs, addresses this inconsistency by serving as the central source of information — a single source of truth — for all users.
Deliver information visually and easily.
Instead of the generic, templated reports, present your data visually through your dashboard and engage your audience to absorb information faster. With Caspio, you can create charts, tables and graphs instantly. No need to be a graphic design expert. Direct your users’ attention to data that really matters at first glance.
Securely access and share business data.
Dashboards allow users to access the information anywhere there’s an internet connection, without the need to download and install additional software. And since you can set user access levels, you can also limit the amount or type of data users can see depending on their access type. You can set a secure login page or make the data publicly available.

With Caspio, the range of web dashboards you can build is limited only by your imagination. Here are some popular use cases built by business professionals across all industries and departments.
Before you start building your first online dashboard, consider the following tips to help you through the process:
Think about the audience of your dashboard
A dashboard can serve multiple user roles. However, the best dashboard designs target a single type of user and only show data relevant to that audience. So, before building a dashboard, be sure that you clearly understand the needs of the intended user and the scope of their requirements.
Group data logically
A well-designed business dashboard ensures that data displays in logical groups. If your dashboard includes both regional sales and individual sales performance, make sure your data sets are displayed next to each other. Personnel KPI data should then be displayed together in a separate logical group.
Choose the best visual dashboard tools for each data type
Looking to see which team accounted for the most sales this month? Use a pie chart. Want to evaluate the performance of an employee over the past 12 months? Use a line chart. A dashboard presents data visually, so choose the right chart or graph that’s best suited for the information you want to display.
Present only the most important metrics
Cluttered dashboards take away the focus from the most relevant messages. There’s no solid rule to follow here, except making sure everything you show is meaningful to the intended user. Simply put, don’t add a chart or a graph just because you can. Remember, dashboards help users find clarity.
