How one client is using Airtable’s dashboard to make smarter decisions

After the databases were organized, and key metrics and KPIs identified, I set-up dashboards giving the client access to information like - 

      • KPIs for a remote team

      • client timelines from on-boarding to deliverables

      • response percentages and patterns of contacts

The business owner and teams are using the dashboards to work smarter and to make strategic decisions about clients and employees by - 

  • providing employees with a weekly performance report of their KPIs

  • reviewing the smartest approach to pitching the thousands of contacts in their database based on tracking historical data including the percent success rate and average response time to inquiries

  • tracking the number of pitches each employee sends out on a weekly basis

  • tracking the percentage of pitches that are successful on the initial outreach vs a follow-up

  • measuring timelines in days or weeks for the on-boarding process and whether clients are on-track for promised deliverables
