Nationwide Transportation Customer Case Study

by Runali Ghosh on March 21, 2017 No comments

Nationwide Transportation had requirements to be able to quickly model and visualize their data, providing rapid insight into performance of several KPIs– trend, actual and targets. Users would need to be able to view the dashboard both from an iPad and on a desktop.

 After they looked into several software options, BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.1 (aka Xcelsius) was identified as the ideal tool and InfoSol was engaged to develop the product for them. InfoBurst Enterprise was not only heavily used for caching data, but also played a key role in the success of the project. It was used in an efficient and unique way to support drill down through multiple hierarchies, comparison of actual vs target and trend analysis at each hierarchy. The dashboard provided trend summaries in the landing page/home screen with pagination through 20+ KPIs and contained 3×3 grids for each KPI. Each of the grids again was clickable and drillable down to lower level of the business hierarchy. One of the key design aspects was to create a scalable product that does not need intervention upon addition of KPI’s, which is a frequent phenomenon in their environment.

In this session, I will show how Xcelsius and InfoBurst created this powerful application and show some of the unique features used to achieve the functionality rarely considered possible by a dashboard design software.
