Data Input

After determining client-specific Key Performance Indicators and structuring the dataset accordingly, a secure, online portal is tailor-made for your organisation. Your online portal provides an easily accessible, user-friendly interface in which consumption and activity data can be captured easily via online forms tailored to the specific reporting facility.

The user interface is designed to manage data input quality, including prohibiting incorrect formats and out-of-bound data entry warnings.

Data Management and Status

Overall data input and completeness status can be reviewed and edited easily, providing excellent control of data completeness and quality.

Data captured can be reviewed by browsing through overall data captured for a specific period, reviewing data history or scrutinising data entered for individual elements. Pop-Up Charts visually compare data input for a specific parameter to previously entered values, and provides checks that documentation for data substantiation has been submitted. Easy-to-use edit functions allow values to be corrected and resubmitted, while tracking original and subsequent submissions, changes and comments.

This delivers the ability to track and manage overall data input and completeness status for multiple sites or business units, as well as for specific parameters and indicators.
