Your reports are muddy. Too busy. Inconclusive. Contain too many pie charts.
These are some of the more common obstacles and concerns that companies face while developing their reporting suites. Velocity Group specializes in Business Intelligence solutions for companies of all sizes and all industries. From specific KPIs to customized branding, our advanced visualizations are sure to provide a deeper understanding and level of transparency to your business.
Ideally, your visualizations and dashboards should require no explanation. If you catch yourself walking people through your reports, then it’s time for some redesigning.
Check out the 3 ideas below to help you re-visualize some of your dashboards!
5 Second Rule
The User Has 5 Seconds To Find A Valuable Insight From Your Visual

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Visualization platforms are capable of a lot of interesting ideas, but be careful not to get carried away. Like many things – except 80’s hair metal solos – less is more.
How Can The User Leverage The Visual To Make Better Business Decisions?
Aesthetics play a key role in effective visualizations, but make sure not to lose sight of the bigger picture: what actionable items can be seen with your visualization? If there’s not a clear action associated, the line between dashboard and infographic becomes blurry.
