ROCKVILLE, Md., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ISG Solutions announced the launch of ISG Dashboard Factory, a new service for delivering and implementing dashboards for associations. With ISG Dashboard Factory, associations can begin creating and using dashboards without having to buy any software, and can then step into a more sophisticated solution if desired, at their own pace. Each association gets help from a Dashboard Advisor, who provides advice on how to design their dashboards and display data so it is easy to consume and understand.
"Associations have business intelligence needs that are very different from for-profit businesses," said Terrie Noonan, CEO of ISG Solutions. "ISG Dashboard Factory is the first solution designed specifically for associations. With our unique, tiered approach it is easy for associations to start using dashboards in a lightweight way, without making a large investment. This helps ensure that our clients are successful in their dashboard implementations."
ISG Dashboard Factory offers three tiers of services. Associations can choose any tier, can combine tiers, and move easily from one tier to the next without losing any of the work done previously.
Dashboards on Demand - The association delivers the data in Excel spreadsheets and ISG creates an interactive dashboard with drill-down capability. This tier allows an association to "try before they buy" - to begin using dashboards in reports to the Board, executive team, and members - in a simple, low-cost and low-commitment way.
Live Dashboards - With this tier, the dashboard is connected directly to the data source (instead of coming from spreadsheets), so the data is live. Displaying real-time data in a dashboard is particularly useful for associations that want to track event registrations and product sales where data is updated continuously.
ISG Data Warehouse - When an association needs more analytics, access to historical data, and greater ability to slice and dice information, a data warehouse delivers the desired capabilities. This third tier aggregates data from a variety of sources, standardizes the data, and stores it in one central location.
More information is available from www.isgsolutions.com/dashboard-factory or at the ASAE Technology Conference (www.technologyconference.org), held December 4-5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. ISG is exhibiting in booth 505.
