What is a digital dashboard and what benefits does it provide? Digital Dashboards consist of software that gives someone an instant viewing of vital information. Digital dashboards can communicate financial information such as sales, number of employees, growth, declines, cash flow. The information is communicated through charts and graphs of different types. Essentially, small parts of information are taken and made into a “big picture” outline of how different parts of the company are doing. Some of the benefits of digital dashboards include quick monetary control, business analysis, ease of identifying companywide issues, better clarity with departments that are doing well and others that are not. Hence, digital dashboards can help discover positive trends and correct negative trends. They can answer problems more quickly without long drawn out processes. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
