If you are old enough, you may remember what dashboards were like in cars built at the beginning of the automobile age. They were nothing like today.
All you had was a gas gauge and a speedometer. Everything else you had to figure out on your own. Today's cars tell you your speed, your fuel, your direction, your miles remaining, and a whole host of other navigational details.
Now, image navigating your business without a dashboard. You don't have a dashboard? Don't feel bad, most business owners don't. Even when they have the available data, they have no organized, efficient way of looking at it to see how they are doing.
