Spectrum Dashboard App Brief - Construction Software

The Spectrum Construction Software Dashboard is an intelligent, flexible and accessible portal to help Spectrum users manage complex work and information all in one convenient, easy-to-use location. Logging into Spectrum takes you immediately to your individual dashboard with applications displaying data relevant to your job. Users can see bar graphs or pie charts breaking data down into key performance indicators, lists of data or tasks, alerts and notifications—even company event information and industry news feeds. Everyone in the organization can access the Spectrum Dashboard to see how projects are progressing, how the company is performing, to stay abreast of the latest news, get their daily tasks, and much more.

Redefining the business dashboard

The Spectrum Dashboard goes far beyond what most other software dashboards provide. Starting with a high-level graphical presentation of information, you can drill down to the deep levels of data directly from any of the many Dashboard Apps. The apps tie directly into Spectrum’s database, ensuring that all the information presented is up-to-the-minute accurate. The Spectrum Dashboard combines elements of business intelligence, intuitive navigation, and custom reporting all in one tool, and allows every person in your company the ability to build the views, lists, alerts, and reports that matter most to them.

Examples of some of the apps delivered with each Spectrum system include those which feature insight into cash flow, work in progress, cost-to-complete, over/under billing, and earned revenue, overdue project tasks, change order status, work order statistics, and many more.

Dashboard App Brief - Construction Software

The real power of the Spectrum Dashboard lies in its accessibility. Every employee, whether they access Spectrum construciton software though a paid user’s license or not, can log into the Dashboard. This makes it an ideal tool for sharing relevant job information, tasks, alerts, or even company news and events. As with other Spectrum applications, complete security is part of the design of the Spectrum Dashboard. System administrators can determine whom to give access to the dashboard, which apps they can access, and even which specific data they want different users to be able to view. A project manager, for example, may be granted access to see all apps, but those apps will only reflect jobs they are managing.

Spectrum Kiosks expand data entry to the field and beyond

More than just a tool for sharing information across the company, certain apps called Dashboard Kiosks are available that let employees enter data and perform specific tasks. Particularly useful for remote or field staff, the Dashboard Kiosks include capabilities such as entering labor hours by job, self-serve access to pay statements, equipment tracking and preventive maintenance alerts, work order processing, subcontractor management, and more. Spectrum Kiosks extend the power of Spectrum into the field and across all employees.

Completely customizable—completely secure

Each user can customize their experience with the Spectrum Dashboard. You can choose from a large number of pre-built apps or create your own using Spectrum’s app creation functionality. Virtually every data element in your database is available for you to use in building apps to suit your needs.

The look and feel of each app, either pre-existing or custom-built, can be modified to your tastes. Through the Dashboard Settings function, you can search for, select, and position your apps the way you’d like to see them. From the dashboard itself, utilities let you quickly change appearances and sizes, and you can drag and drop apps wherever you want them to appear on the screen.
