mrc Adds User-Defined Dashboards to m-Power
August 2013 Lombard, IL
Today, software tool developer mrc announces the release of User-Defined Dashboards within m-Power. m-Power is software that rapidly creates web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.
Typically found in an intranet page or portal, dashboards combine essential business metrics together on a single page. They provide a live overview of business operations and help business leaders make quick, informed decisions.
Dashboards usually display a pre-determined set of metrics in a pre-set layout. For instance, a sales dashboard might display metrics like daily/monthly product sales, geographical sales numbers, top customers, and salesperson performance, to name a few. If one sales manager needed additional metrics, or metrics that differ from the other sales manager's dashboards, they run into problems. They must either create a brand new dashboard themselves, or request a new dashboard from the IT department.
Understanding that one dashboard doesn't fit all users, mrc developed User-Defined Dashboards for m-Power. This enhancement puts dashboard control and customization in the user's hands. It lets m-Power create dashboards that give users the ability to:
While the new User-Defined Dashboard enhancement gives users control over their dashboards, it also packs necessary security features for developers. When creating the initial dashboard for their users, developers control which data each user can include in their dashboard, and also control which data each user can access when viewing shared dashboards. In this way, developers ensure that users don't access unauthorized data, while still giving users control over their dashboard.
"This enhancement turns the traditional dashboard model on its head," says Tyler Wassell, mrc's Manager of Software Development. "It puts users in the driver's seat, and eliminates the need for developers to create multiple dashboards. A single user-defined dashboard provides a completely customized view to each user."###
