The importance of dashboards

It can be frustrating when you don’t have information at your fingertips. With IP departments under increasing scrutiny, the pressure to deliver value add is more extreme than ever. IP professionals often face the challenge of pulling and manipulating data from multiple sources manually which can be inefficient, suboptimal and tedious. Dashboards are the key. 


Better decisions through dashboards

Business intelligence dashboards (sometimes referred to as enterprise dashboards) are an analytics tool used to visualise Big Data across all industries. These dashboards provide critical reporting and metrics information and are integral in Business Performance Management. Much like the dashboard in your vehicle, dashboards display real-time key metrics and performance indicators, guiding decisions and better navigating the surrounding landscape.


Dashboards are vital to IP decision making

IP Professionals use dashboards to quickly gain insights into the most important aspects of their data. They get real time insights and competitive analyses, and use them to identify items that require urgent action, streamlining workflows and properly purposing resources. IP dashboards are especially helpful when:

  • Managing, creating and sharing reports, which can be a resource-intensive activity requiring a significant amount of upkeep and modification to meet differing – and sometimes competing – requirements
  • Monitoring filings based on business unit, geographic regions and submissions over time
  • Quarterly and annual reporting, including spend over time
  • Reporting on tasks/work assignments/workload
  • Personalising content for each type of user, such as Attorney view vs operations view
