Dashboard Dealership Enterprises Elevates Auto Dealer Business Intelligence to a New Level with Executive Eye 3.0
Pleasanton, CA — July 18, 2017 — Dashboard Dealership Enterprises, the leader in Business Analytic reporting solutions for auto dealers, today introduced Executive Eye 3.0, the industry’s most robust and diverse Business Analytic reporting suite available. The latest version of Executive Eye sets a new standard for how data analytics are used daily to make better business decisions and increase profitability within auto dealerships, consistently delivering a ‘single version of the truth’ view.
“Reporting has always been clunky, time consuming; often it’s difficult for dealers to understand how numbers translate into actionable data,” said Josh Blick, CEO of Dashboard Dealership Enterprises. “Executive Eye 3.0 is a groundbreaking tool that completely changes the paradigm of how a Business Analytic reporting tool can be used. Instead of spending time compiling reports, managers instantly have actionable data at their fingertips.”
Built on a highly intuitive, modern web platform utilizing the latest in software development technology, Executive Eye 3.0 offers auto dealers unsurpassed sophistication, speed and security. The advanced platform allows new features and updates to be added quickly, enabling Dashboard to further its reputation for delivering best-in-class service to its customers.
The first thing dealers will notice about Executive Eye 3.0 is the completely re-designed and visually appealing graphical user interface (GUI). New colorful themes, more white space, better organization and a variety of graphic display options allow dealers to reach meaningful conclusions quickly.
The user interface was designed with input from Dashboard’s Dealer clients. In beta testing the Executive Eye 3.0 demonstrated a 30 percent increase in dealership usage compared to average usage of 2.0. Additionally, a more efficient design requires 40 percent fewer clicks to drill down on data.
Executive Eye 3.0 is mobile friendly across all platforms, including all commonly used operating systems, Internet browsers, computers, phones and tablets. No mobile application is needed to view the software and reports on a mobile device. Dealership employees that use tablets can use touchscreens to access menus and perform other functions.
Executive Eye 3.0 has been enhanced to offer auto dealers the industry’s most predictive budgeting and forecasting tools. Using predictive analytics dealers can view metrics and, assuming no unforeseen changes, will know with a high degree of accuracy how the month will end.
According to Blick, Dashboard Dealership Enterprise is unique because it approaches forecasting from both a revenue and expense standpoint both at the enterprise and dealership level. “Most reporting applications are very revenue focused, because historically that’s how dealers have generated more profit,” said Blick. “However, profitability is also achieved by controlling expenses and identifying areas where there is wasteful spending.”
Executive Eye 3.0 makes it easy for auto dealers to assess the financial health of one store or of an entire group with innovative Business Analytic reporting tools. Dealers can view Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) from all their stores in a side-by-side view, allowing for easy performance comparison and identification of stores that need attention. Additionally, a “Consolidated Doc” report allows dealers to instantly consolidate Docs from individual stores into a single Doc report for an entire group of stores.
An advanced messaging tool built into Executive Eye 3.0 enables users to communicate directly with Dashboard’s customer support as well as with other users via a direct messaging feature. This was designed so that users can assign tasks, write notes to each other and improve workflow. Reports, alerts and comments can be shared without the need to export data or compose emails outside of the messaging tool.
