Challenge

Glen Raven Inc. desired a dashboard software that had the capabilities to present complex data sets in a clear, efficient manner to management and other consumers of data. They needed a solution that could be supported on desktops, as well as mobile devices, and required minimal training for the development team and end users. During the research and decision-making process, they weighted several dashboard solutions but decided iDashboards had the most intuitive look and feel and fit best with their development expertise.

Our end users are very excited by the product. It is visually appealing. Since we are now able to consolidate data onto dashboards, end users have a clear understanding as to what is happening with aspects of our business.
