Compass Dashboard logo.

Compass Dashboard is a strategic and operational real-time reporting system, incorporating the latest advances in data mining and presentation technology.

Sample Dashboard.

Compass Dashboard:

enables tighter control and oversight for operations managers by displaying to-the-minute delivery and production information,

facilitates advanced financial planning and budgeting through its drill down and filtering capabilities,

utilizes business intelligence presentation technology from Microsoft and map based programs from Google (with Compass GEO) to interpret results quickly, and

provides for a nightly mail-out to managers of key process indicators, up to date to the end of that day’s business.

Job Delivery progress by day.

In addition to providing key parameter mailouts (by email or through Microsoft Power BI), the Compass Dashboard provides detailed, deep analyses, such as this one showing job delivery progress.

Customer Price analysis.

This is a section of the material price analysis by customer.  Material and delivery prices achieved are shown in separate columns. Customers can be expanded to show detail by delivery location, job and product.

There are 12 varied and detailed analyses available within the Dashboard module.


Slicers allow an interactive drill down into the data to select on the basis of time periods, customers, jobs, product groups, individual products and other elements.

Each of the 12 Dashboard analyses has its own set of appropriate slicers.
