  • This encourages quick acceptance of the new system because it best supports the way they need to work.

Sun Systems Dashboards

Sun Systems dashboards are interactive visual displays of key information, direct from the live system. Pages are refreshed and updated in real time whenever data is entered into Sun Systems.
Their purpose is to provide key management information, to authorised users, on a single screen. The screens are available directly within the application or can be viewed on a tablet or smart phone.

Similar to pivot tables, “slicers” can be used to filter by Business Units, Accounting Periods, Analysis Dimensions or any other relevant selection criteria.

Information output is arranged in “tiles”, each of which can have a drill down capability (see below). This means that users can break out information at a more detailed level, without needing to refer back to the Finance department.

When it comes to deciding what to measure and how to display this in a meaningful way, FinanSys can help with the design and structure of your dashboards. We can also help you to link to other data sources.
