A visual interpretation of trends 21 May 2019

Performance analysis is an essential part of any trading operation, delivering to businesses a crucial insight into areas that require improvement while also shining a light on what processes are proving successful. However, often businesses don’t have the time to drill down into sales and despatch figures in any real detail and instead need headline information in an easy-to-digest format in order to make informed business decisions.

Without access to this critical information, businesses can often find themselves overlooking key aspects of their daily operations, resulting in a false picture being painted and under performance continuing within key areas. From this, management can find themselves making decisions based on ill-informed data that can ultimately damage bottom line profitability.

With OrderWise KPI dashboards, businesses are given the tools they need to ensure requirements are correctly identified and follow ups promptly actioned. Through these KPI dashboards, businesses can gain a visual interpretation of trends, troughs and spikes on key performance statistics, allowing an accurate insight into the entire operation of the business.

The OrderWise KPI Dashboards have recently undergone a revamp, with existing capabilities enhanced to offer users even greater insights at-a-glance across 300 dynamic dashboard elements. These enhancements have been driven by a brand new, user-friendly dashboard editor, which allows businesses to effortlessly tailor their dashboards to display the key data that matters in a format that suits them.

Using this new dashboard editor, chart colours and styling can be customised to meet individual preferences or company branding. Additionally, OrderWise KPI Dashboards are now also available through the OrderWise Mobile App for the first time, meaning App users can now also access these essential insights on-the-go.

However, the real power of OrderWise KPI Dashboards comes when combined with OrderWise Business Intelligence. By providing key statistics in a variety of chart formats, the at a glance interpretation offered by KPI Dashboards enables the early identification of trends that warrant deeper investigation within the OrderWise Business Intelligence module.

By utilising both OrderWise KPI Dashboards and Business Intelligence, businesses can harness a wealth of reporting functionality that not only enhances daily operations but also overall performance, growth and profitability.

OrderWise welcomes ten new faces and boosts robotics team
As well as revamping the KPI Dashboards, OrderWise is hitting the ground running in 2019 after welcoming ten more new faces to its growing team.

The news comes at an exciting time for the company; in February it announced that it had been shortlisted for two National Technology Awards including Best Tech Place to Work and Innovative Enterprise Product of the Year.

The addition of this month’s new starters means that 18 new members of
staff have been employed at the multi award winning company in 2019 so far. Among the new starters are Steve Hilton, Haider Alzein, Alan Essom and Annie Bey who have been appointed to help strengthen the development and implementation of the innovative OrderWise Warehouse Robotics Technology.

“We’re thrilled to be welcoming even more local talent to our ever expanding team. We’ve invested over GB£2 million into robotics technology, which is due to launch later this year – we’ve boosted our staff numbers to keep up with demand and are proud that 40% of our new starters are electronic engineers or trained robotic specialists,” said David Hallam, managing director at OrderWise.
