Production Data Displays

As a MultiValue database VAR our developers work daily providing solutions for our customer’s on-going, ever changing, needs and requirements. One of our recent projects will be of particular interest to visitors to our website. Some of our customers are being asked by their end users to display production data on wall mounted flat screens in their work areas. Utilizing ForeMost dashboards and providing easy access to real-time production data and Key Performance Indicators, (KPI’s) for management and end-users alike provides exciting opportunities for our A-Team.

Consider a display of Requests For Quote or Orders received including a display column indicating how many quotes have been provided and another display column noting whether the Business is Won / Lost. A display of this type, located in your sales team’s ‘bull pen area’ would help to keep your entire team up-to-date regarding sales opportunities and spur competition.

Displays including order status, inventory status or ‘hot spots’, shipping/receiving, etc. can be made available for your end users and even for visitors to your offices. Making a production display of this type available is a great way to demonstrate more of the potential your MultiValue systems offer and you will probably begin to receive additional requests from other departments for additional displays of their own specific KPI’s.

We are happy to assist adding improvements like these and more new functionality to your systems so please share the challenges you are facing and the tasks you need to address for your company and we will respond right away.
