KPIs and metrics help you predict outcomes and adjust goals based on market trends. Having the right key performance indicators (KPIs) will help you measure the efficiency of your business methods, enabling your company to be a leader in its domain by being able to make the right decision at the right time. In this blog, I will give you a brief explanation of 15 KPI dashboards you should have embedded in your application, based on your industry, and how they will help you to be consistently successful in your business.
What is a KPI?
KPIs are essentially data points of important aspects of a business, such as the number of products sold daily, the amount of time a salesperson spends on the phone with customers each week, or the number of sales leads generated from a digital ad that ran all month. KPIs allow organizations to determine whether they are on track to meet their goals. Working to improve leading indicators that will eventually benefit the company is a common part of managing with KPIs. Leading indicators predict future performance, while trailing indicators demonstrate how successful the company was at obtaining goals.
Key benefits of KPIs:
- To measure how successfully a company hit its targets and completed its objectives.
- To achieve efficiency, increase customer satisfaction, and maintain customer retention.
- To monitor an organization’s operational performance.
