Overall Satisfaction with Visual KPI

At our agency, we use Visual KPI across every department in the entire organization to monitor, visualize and analyze important data like task management, purchase orders, sales quotes, sales invoices, people utilization, client project coordination, timesheet approvals, organization charts, employee documents and more. Everyone can see the real-time data and manage their projects accordingly.
  • The latest user interface makes it easier to use.
  • The search function helps find projects quickly.
  • It covers a lot of areas of your business so there is intrinsic value to how robust it is.
  • There is a lot of clunky extras that get in the way of task and project management.
  • It could use a better approval process that alerts supervisors outside of email.
  • It would be great if you could create your own shortcuts so it focuses on what you use the most.
Most of these products serve as the master source for managing data, but they all seem to have their own focus for what kind of data and metrics they monitor, visualize and analyze. I think Visual KPI holds its own against the competition because it serves so many purposes for so many departments at your organization.
From my understanding, Visual KPI connects with a lot of different data sources to help them include real-time KPIs, dashboards with monitoring, analyzing and alerting that span multiple data points. In our experience, it has been relatively easy to securely merge data from the different sources and still set up any of the role-based permissions necessary to govern the project.
This has been the biggest advantage for our organization as we depend on it for so many different control capabilities, project management and data access for all our teams. We have never had any issues with security or report distribution and the formatting takes a little getting used to but is fine as well.
I think for a robust, all-inclusive management system, it does a good job. However, by trying to be everything for everyone there is always issues with quality and the user experience. The recent changes have helped with a lot of these issues, but it is still very overwhelming to onboard new employees to the system.
