A dashboard is an interface which visualizes the key metrics of a software, app or website in real time. IT breaks the KPI/metrics into a set of data, showing the desired goals. From there, by using various functions, users can see how different targeted activities are progressing over the time e.g day, week, month or year and make powerful analysis, planning and reporting functions supporting users in their daily business.
Any product based business has many ends too meet and without a proper software this is quite impossible as well as time consuming. So, a proper distribution management system dashboard is essential for any distribution business.
Sokrio DMS system has its own dashboard to satisfy the user’s goals. It contains data about sales and distribution channels aligned with the target set by the sales manager. From there the sales manager can see the performance of his team or any individual. There are several metrics that are displayed in the dashboard, e,g target vs achievement, total revenue generated, total outlets visit, total invoice making etc etc metrics which updates in real time for any input given by field force.
