Initially, the Real-Time Dashboard will provide management with an up-to-the-minute view of trading activity and profitability. The ability to 'drill-down' enables these metrics to be analysed at whatever level required - from group, business unit, through to individual desk or individual stock.
Tim Valmas, Director of Operations and IT at EVBG, said: "The Real-Time Dashboard allows us to be far more responsive to events; we can control operations more effectively, better manage risk, liquidity and compliance. Currently we concentrate much of our reporting on end-of-day information. For an operation of our size this offers substantial benefits."
Gresham's Real-Time Dashboard has been designed for CFO's, treasurers or heads of operations, who find that current performance reporting methods can no longer address the imperative for increased enterprise-wide visibility and control. It is designed for total flexibility, delivering the precise information required, in a format to suit the exact needs of the user.
Unlike conventional reporting applications, Gresham's Real-Time Dashboard can be deployed in a matter of weeks, not years. It can access information from anywhere in the business, without the need to change existing systems. Data latency is minimized - what is presented is current. It can be readily adapted to suit individual requirements. And it is not just a view, but is interactive, enabling swift response to events as they occur.
Implemented at Evolution in-conjunction with City consultants NorthPoint Solutions, the Real-Time Dashboard is expected to become a central feature of EVBG's current and future operations. Tim Valmas remarks: "Gresham's Real-Time Dashboard gives us the precise information we want, how we want it and when we want it. Its flexibility, speed of deployment and scalability means that we can easily adapt it as our business continues to grow."
