True Analytics in Business Performance Management Software
Business analytics makes a great deal of the must-have functionality in most corporate performance management systems. It is usually associated with data warehousing, essentially centralized database repositories designed to support an organization's decision making and reporting. Databases are updated and can contain large amounts of analytical information about customers, sales transactions, personnel, products, and more.
Once all the pieces of business information are entered in CentriQS database, you are enabled to access various analytics views for deep business analysis and reporting. As an example, you can go to the "Sales Analytics" view to measure sales performance and create a report on sales revenue. You can select which pieces of sales data to include in the analytics and what filters and soring rules to apply. Then CentriQS's business management software solution generates a pivot table that explores your sales performance by buyer, product, period, amount, salesperson, region, and more options.
Visualize Performance Data
Various graphs to visualize your performance data are allowed for use and setup. For example, you can set the Funnel chart to display the amount of revenue per stage of the sales pipeline, including "Prospect", "Qualify", and "Closing". This chart gives you an idea of much your business is going to earn at the funnel's output. You can also judge whether your salespeople perform good. Another example could be the Pie chart showing the percent distribution of your customer accounts among different countries, such as the United Stated, the United Kingdom, Canada and other countries.
The Power to Create Performance Measurement Dashboards
One more essential thing to consider is that you and other users can create various dashboards to measure and manage business performance. A great example is making dashboards in CentriQS. This software lets you select and add multiple items on a single dashboard and then customize the dashboard's layout with convenient drag'n'drop functionality. Analytics, customer profiles, various graphs, todo lists, projects, and other items can be included. For example, you can add the Projects view, line chart and Pie diagram to keep track of your projects, their burndown line and task progress. You can share this dashboard among other users.
