Keep Track of KPIs with the Analytics Dashboard

  • Dark

Article Summary

Bringg's analytics dashboard offers live monitoring of your KPIs with rich graphical widgets. You can use your data to improve efficiency, save money, and share in reports to executives. For example, you can compare the on-time deliveries between different carriers or time periods to see which business strategies are most cost-effective.

You can also customize the analytics dashboard so that the information you access most frequently is front and center. Create and manage multiple dashboards in separate tabs, adding exactly which widgets you want from the catalog to each. Duplicate dashboards and adjust for different purposes. Resize or reposition widgets, and remove the ones you no longer need. Then share dashboards with the colleagues who most need to see it.

For example, create one dashboard with widgets that monitor driver efficiency for a particular team. Then duplicate and adjust the widgets to monitor thedrivers of another team. Share each dashboard with its team's dispatchers so that they can adjust driver assignments and routing as needed.

Before You Begin

  • Determine what KPIs you want to measure, how you want to see them, and with whom you want to share.


Step 1: To access the analytics dashboard, go to Analytics > BI Dashboard in the sidebar.

Access the Analytics Dashboard 

New dashboards currently feature a number of default widgets so you can quickly view your data and how they compare to your KPIs. For example, if you work with multiple carriers, you can use the carrier hub dashboard template that comes with a pre-configured set of widgets to help you monitor efficiency throughout your entire delivery network.

Step 2: Filter the dashboard to view a specific set of data. 

For example, you can filter by teams, drivers, carriers, tags, or time frames.

Once you adjust the filters you want, select Filter.

Filter and compare data


In order to use the drivers filter, you first need to filter for teams.

Compare data over a certain time frame to another time frame of equal duration by activating the Compared to toggle and selecting a parallel time frame.

For example, compare data from the current holiday season to the same dates in the previous year to see how your strategy for fulfilling orders during the holiday season has improved.

Compare with a previous time frame


To declutter your screen, you can hide the filters by reselecting Filters.
