You get results by tracking ownership of data and completion of activities. Measurement is essential in quantifying performance gaps and providing insights into root causes of inadequate performance. Our latest release enables an enterprise to quantify and measure activity enterprise-wide. You make informed business decisions and reduce costs while improving both company performance and customer satisfaction. The integrated QMS utilizes user-defined Key Performance Indicators to tell at a glance what’s running smoothly and what needs attention. On Line Analytical Processing provides answers to analytical queries that can be dimensional in nature. The information populates dashboards and balanced scorecards allowing drill down on areas of interest or different perspectives. Dashboards and Balanced Scorecards display your information in a simple, graphical format indicating areas of concern, trends, limits surpassed, or performance gaps. Our latest release maps and measures performance vis-à-vis the enterprise’s goals, objectives, or compliance requirements."
