Everyone overlooks the importance of design in dashboards.
Poorly designed dashboards hold businesses back from making the right data-driven decisions. It can cost you money, time, and your reputation, and here's why.
Well designed dashboards help your business to quickly identify trends and insights, enabling your users to find and act on data-driven insights faster. Without dashboard design, you're making it difficult for your employees to analyze the data, find new opportunities, and make better decisions. Failing to implement design in your dashboards will, therefore, have a direct impact on your business' bottom line
Using professional design in your dashboards saves your business time by bringing the answers your employees are searching for to the forefront. If you don't have a good dashboard design, your business will spend disproportionate amounts of time trying to understand the data. This time can be better spent acting on the insights-driven from your dashboard, not trying to decipher data.
Lack of design will also make it harder for your employees to retain the information in your dashboard. If your employees don't retain the insights they will have to keep repeating the process which will have a direct cost in both time and money to your business.
Using consistent professional design in your dashboards is key to maintaining your business's reputation internally and externally. Without dashboard design, your clients and employees can get confused and frustrated when looking at the data. If you don't have a professional design your clients will lose trust in what you're producing. For your business, this will leave your reputation damaged and can make it harder for you to gain credibility.
