Data Visualization: Dashboards

See what is happening in your company – at a glance – so you can make informed and timely business decisions. Orbit Reporting and Analytics brings all of your data together in clear, interactive dashboards that users can build themselves – without writing a single line of code.

Presents Data Simply and Intuitively

You rely on data to analyze trends, see which areas of your operations need improvement, and predict which direction your business will go in the future. However, many reporting tools give you huge dumps of data – without an easy way to interpret them on your own. If you want to create or modify a dashboard, you often need to ask IT for help. But your IT developers might still be working on your last request, so any new dashboard will need to wait until they become available. Also, most tools don’t provide a wizard to guide you through the visualization choices that will help you measure your business performance, identify areas of improvement, and streamline your operations.Most reporting tools display data from a single application. Since they fail to consolidate information from your other relevant data sources, they only give you partial views – leading to partial answers to your business questions.

If you want to see the big picture, you will need to familiarize yourself with multiple reporting tools and manually export data from them. Then, you must aggregate and map the fields in a common data repository. This process is time-consuming, fraught with security risks, and still won’t give you all of the information that you need. Orbit Reporting and Analytics presents data simply and intuitively. The clear dashboards and visuals tell you what you need to know – at a glance. With Orbit, you can

View Data from Across Your Company in a Single Dashboard

You don’t need to move between multiple applications to view and analyze data.

Orbit pulls real-time data from across your applications and databases into a single dashboard. Let’s say you want to understand your revenue by sales region, track actual vs. forecasted revenue, and monitor any returned products that will negatively affect your net revenue. Data from your CRM will provide some of this information, but likely not the full picture, as the actual revenue as well, as items shipped or returned, may come from your ERP application.

Orbit can aggregate data from your ERP, CRM, and in-house applications – giving you the complete story, and a single version of the truth.

Quickly and Easily Build Dashboards (Without Help from IT)

You no longer must submit a ticket with IT to view and analyze your data. Orbit’s self-service dashboards make it easy for you to see upto-the-minute metrics and KPIs.

With Orbit, you can create and edit dashboards on demand. Creating a new dashboard is as easy as dragging and dropping reports from your library into a blank canvas. You can then arrange or resize your charts and reports in a layout that best suits your needs.

Orbit’s drag-and-drop interface also lets you create charts, graphs, maps, and other dashboard elements. Simply drag the items that you want to include in your report and click to build your visual. Orbit’s dashboards support a range of charts – including data grids, KPIs, bar charts, pie charts, area charts, bubble charts, maps, and much more.

In addition, Orbit’s dynamic URL functionality allows you to embed dashboards into any other application. You can also export dashboards to PDFs, which makes them easy to share with others.


Dive Deep Into Your Data

With Orbit, you’re not limited to a quick snapshot of your company. You can drill down from summary-level data to the supporting transactional data, and get real-time insights that will improve your decision-making.

For example, the dashboard below contains interactive visualizations. If you click on the state of California on the map, you will see sales data that is specific to the state.

All of the other relevant visualizations in the dashboard will automatically drill down to California. The Sales by Customer Segment chart will display California numbers, while the Sales vs. Profit graph will show you what products are selling across the state.

Access Any Dashboard, At Any Time, From Any Device

Orbit provides the speed and flexibility you need to access critical business information that helps you answer important questions. Orbit users can view all of their dashboards and reports from any device – including desktops, tablets, and mobile phones.

“Orbit is very user-friendly, even for people that don’t have an affinity for technology. I was able to develop a dashboard that served as a hub for all pre-medical student information. With my dashboard, I can produce visual data about our pre-med students. I’m excited to bring this to fruition.”
