A KPI dashboard presents a visual display of a company's Key Performance Indicators. The data dashboard uses an API to evaluate and integrate business metrics from different departments with a company.
KPI dashboards consolidate information from accounting software, performance reports, customer relationship management systems, email and website analytics, among others. The dashboard provides an at-a-glance summary of the company's performance and can be broadcast to different screens within an office.
A Key Performance Indicator is a quantifiable value indicating how effectively the company is achieving their most important business objectives. Common KPIs include: debt to equity ratio, net profit margin, return on investment, inventory turns and employee performance.
