An Executive Dashboard is a visual representation, such as the image below, that gives executives a quick and easy way to view their company’s performance in real-time.
Executive Dashboards work by connecting, via APIs or “application programming interfaces,” with the business systems you currently use. These systems including, among others, your accounting software, your customer relationship management (CRM) system, your email system, your website analytics program, etc.
The Executive Dashboard pulls all this information into one place so you don’t have to log into multiple systems. It can also manipulate this data so the information is in a more accessible format.
