Next-Gen dashboards and Reports are crucial for easy access to key quality metrics, quality analytics and data.
In this post as part of our ‘Factor 8’ Series, we focus on the topic of ‘Dashboards and Reports’. As you probably know by now, ‘Factor 8’ is a series of eight blogs, each focusing on one question quality leaders must ask themselves before choosing an EQMS.
Every organization is sitting on a mine of data that can be leveraged to gain deep insights on various operational metrics. This insight can help in understanding of strengths and weaknesses, leading to course correction where needed and developing strategies to press home the advantage. However, often, the challenge lies in identifying, extracting, organizing and understanding such data.
Why is manual data extraction not good enough?
The manual way of extracting and organizing data is not only time consuming but also prone to introducing errors. Organizing such data can also be a nightmare, as also validating it. The second challenge is in knowing how to effectively use the data to get the right kind of insights.
What about third party tools for automating reports generation?
Some EQMS tools use third party tools but that presents challenges of limited integration capabilities. Compatibility issues as well as continued support can also be causes for concern. Needless to add – there are concerns on security when we need unnecessary layers of integration.
How does automation help?
