Mobile Applications used for field services, inventory/asset management, direct store delivery and proof of delivery are good at capturing data, integrating with backend systems and keeping your mobile force up to date. But all that data can be put to further use if managed through a proper dashboard management system. Dashboard management systems can be a separate application or an add-on to existing applications that provide management the tools to make informed business decisions. Harnessing this information is key to making decisions to better place your organization in the market, maximize profit margins and reduce overhead. What can they do for your business?
Let’s say you run a direct store delivery (DSD) business selling bakery goods. By simply capturing the data that the DSD application provides, you can keep track of inventory and automate invoicing, which in itself is beneficial. But by optimizing your data management into a decision support dashboard you can determine which goods are selling better in which stores and going faster off the truck and link that to ingredient ordering and labor management. Knowing this information allows management to make informed decisions about what ingredients to buy and what products to send to different outlets.
Of course this is simply an example, but dashboard functionality can be beneficial to most businesses. It’s a matter of determining what information is required to make solid decisions and putting that data in front of the decision makers.
