Monitor performance with modern dashboards
You can leverage best practice visualizations and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) through ProfitStars Optimizer’s Modern Dashboard Technology. The performance dashboard collects information from the Performance Suite to display it together in one view while allowing the user to drill down for more detailed explanations. Make better decisions by setting operational goals within the tool and monitoring performance with trends and alerts. ProfitStars Optimizer’s dashboards use industry best practices by turning data into useful information that is easy to understand. Each dashboard is a grouping of key performance indicators and metrics that offer consolidated enterprise information and visibility into the logistics of your bank.
Analyze your business with insights
Users can drill down for more detailed information by clicking on KPIs to launch Insights (which are views into multidimensional database structures called cubes). Insights allow users to instantly change the context and format of the data view with ease. Insights can display both a data grid and chart or graph side-by-side, so as the Insight is sliced, diced, and pivoted, the corresponding chart changes simultaneously.
Improve team productivity with easy-to-use collaborative tools
ProfitStars Optimizer connects people with the information and resources they need. Users can easily create workspaces from the dashboards to coordinate calendars, organize documents, and receive important notifications and updates through communication features like announcements, alerts, and more.
Access the ProfitStars Performance Suite through ProfitStars Optimizer’s application launcher
ProfitStars Optimizer allows you to launch applications from within your dashboard. If you need additional detailed information, simply launch one of the ProfitStars Performance Suite tools. It also allows user/group targeting, so you can have a different set of links per user or group.
Manage and track your business by assigning tasks
If you need to assign a task to another person, department, or manager, you can leverage ProfitStars Optimizer’s task functionality to easily manage and track work. Users can even receive and respond to tasks that have been assigned by ProfitStars Optimizer without having to leave Microsoft Office Outlook.
Easily manage documents and reports in ProfitStars Optimizer’s “Report Central”
ProfitStars Optimizer has enhanced document management capabilities, including the option to activate required document checkout before editing, the ability to view revisions to documents and restore to previous versions, and control over document- and item-level security. Store reports from your ProfitStars products and third-party applications in a centralized Web-based solution that can be distributed across your bank through a common portal. ProfitStars Optimizer includes recycle bin functionality for easier content recovery, and improved backup and restoration of your most important documents.
Reduce the complexity of securing business information
Use ProfitStars Optimizer to secure your most important business information. ProfitStars Optimizer provides advanced administrative controls for increasing the security of information resources, while decreasing cost and complexity associated with site provisioning, site management, and support.

Set permissions at the document or item level, and site managers, teams, and other workgroups can initiate self-service collaborative workspaces and tasks within these preset parameters.
