It’s no secret that every business wants to control costs. One fundamental way of doing so is making sure stories are told accurately (data is passed from one system to another). Appropriately designed reports and interfaces look better aesthetically and keep maintenance and support costs in check. If you’re confused by the design of a report, it’s a waste of valuable information. If you or your employees have to spend excess time and energy trying to understand what the report means, it can be a considerable time and money waster.
Therefore, it’s crucial the design of your information management solution is thoroughly thought-out and executed clearly. You want to ensure it’s as clear-cut as possible, so you don’t wind up having to waste more time and money contacting support services asking for explanations. A properly-designed solution will work to prevent any downstream concerns.
Specialists who create these solutions are truly cost-effective in today’s fast-paced business environment. They understand how business landscapes change and can keep you updated through the inevitable twists and turns. A dedicated netlogx representative will be able to plainly show you how your report and interface design covers your data. We’ll assess your data, model it, and help guide you to discover its quality and overall management.
At netlogx, we even map and cleanse the information that your enterprise uses, so it stays equivalent. That means that we can efficiently combine data from various systems. We’ll also ensure your report’s design stays true to the principles of form, fit, and function, as they work together in beautiful harmony. Here’s a breakdown:
- Form: The story of the data is told clearly through the physical layout.
- Fit: The content fits well within the report.
- Function: The effective technical production and distribution of the data.
Our consultants use the Edward Tufte principles of report design: show comparisons, show causality, use multivariate data, completely integrate modes, establish credibility, and focus on content. With this practice in place, data is the sole focus, and any “chart junk” is eliminated.
Our architects can create templates and a report standards document that allows for the consistent inclusion of key components in all reports. netlogx constantly maintains your interface’s meaning and semantics to plan, deliver, and accurately design based on your company’s business and technical processes.
