What is Executive Reporting?

Executive reporting is a tool that gathers real real-time data from multiple sources and presents it to company executives in a visual format so quick data-driven decisions can be made.

Why use Executive Reporting?

Helps communicate business information: as the most important data is summarized in visual format, it becomes easier to analyze even with those who only have basic understanding of the workings of the business. You can similarly use it to easily communicate the state of your business to your stakeholders and prospective investors.

Identify issues and risks: certain KPIs can help the top brass uncover potential problems in the future, giving them time to implement new measures to prevent them or mitigate their resulting effects.
