Dashboards provide at-a-glance views of corporate performance and measure key metrics that are critical for running the business successfully.

To provide the greatest benefit, dashboards must be dynamic and allow users to drill down into information to better understand the causes of underperformance. However, most dashboards are simple "eye candy." Managers might use them to spot something to investigate later, but cannot use them to drill down and solve real issues. With arcplan, they can – on any device.

Dashboards display easy-to-understand performance metrics and reports. Modern dashboard applications, like the one pictured here, use tabbed navigation to guide users through an interactive experience. They enable users to filter data, interact with charts to see changes in performance over time, and can even contain an ad-hoc component to allow on-the-fly analysis of the causes of underperformance.
