Dashboard Showing Key Performance Indicators (KPI)

A KPI is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. Have staff each fill out a spreadsheet daily with some key values. These numbers will then be pulled from different sources and displayed on a dashboard on your phone or computer. These numbers will signal a problem immediately, rather than waiting until the end of the month to look at financials

  • YTD sales compared to last year or a new target

  • Credit card and bank balance

  • What cruise ships are planned this week (number of passengers/crew)

  • What’s the weather forecast for next 3 days?

  • Website & social media analytics

  • List of 10 most profitable clients

  • Key staff can enter numbers separately daily (for privacy)

    • Kitchen manager reports daily numbers in a spreadsheet

    • Office manager reports other numbers in a different spreadsheet

    • Bookkeeper enters private financial numbers in a protected spreadsheet

    • All of these get consolidated into a single dashboard for the owner, and the same data can be used to show another dashboard with less data to managers…
