Used by Sales Teams

Competition breeds success, especially in the highly competitive world of sales.

Thanks to feedback from users, such as you, we’ve added the leaderboard chart type, which is great for showing the relative movement or financial achievement, especially versus target.

Besides sales teams competing head to head, it's equally easy to pit territory against territory, product line vs product line, customer type vs... all just a click away.

Sales teams deliver their best performance when their head to head performance is visible on a wall mounted dashboard.

Used in Inventory Control and Logistics

Anything with a step by step process can easily be viewed as a sequence of events, by using a leaderboard.

A typical flow might include order booking, acknowledging, invoicing, sourcing, pick and packing, awaiting despatch, in transit, delivery on-time in full.

Knowing how many orders are at which phase of the process is essential to effective inventory management, stock control and resource allocation.

When viewed visually process progress can be monitored at a glance, giving you another management monitoring tool with a minimum of overhead.

Used in Operations, Finance and More

Comparisons, using a leaderboard, are just a click away!

Whether it's order value or counts, call volume or demand for a product or service, a day by day comparison via the leaderboard simply makes good sense.

Once available, please give it a try and see how easy it is to add a leaderboard chart to your existing dashboard(s) or give us a call to discuss where it might fit with your data.

Spot demand peaks and valleys, process chokepoints or share with management and staff so they can easily understand flow-through in your department or organisation.
