Perpetuum Dashboard
The Perpetuum Dashboard software is very professional and extremely easy to use. With over 180 charts and gauges to choose from, professional Dashboards can be created in a matter of hours. rather than days.  We have reviewed many other Dashboards but have found that Perpetuum not only offers more programming options but has excellent support also.   We have posted numerous questions to their support and received answers and even code examples within 24hrs.  Their software installation package contains examples covering most of the options and properties a programmer would need to get started fast in creating a Dashboard.  Both visual basic and C+ examples are provided.  Once an application is created and running on the web, applying data to charts and gauges is fast and very responsive.

1. Data can come from Accounting / ERP, CRM, Excel and many other sources.
2. IOTW extensively uses #6 SDK (Software Developement Kit) and API (Application Programming Interface) to analyze data in Real Time, not only historical data from last year or last month.

Example2 - IOTW customizes and programs the Dashboard to display potential problems in special ways including color to bring to the client's attention.   For example When the CASH balance is negative, IOTW can display that gauge in eye catching RED.

Example3 - Dashboard gauges and charts display data from different programs on one image.   For example this can be used to compare related information in different programs which should be equal, to verify that the data are equal.   If not the client can take corrective action once it is brought to their attention.
