Custom dashboards with role and department-specific KPIs are crucial for having a real-time pulse on the business and job responsibilities.

Cetec ERP allows each user to configure their own custom home screen dashboard, which is the screen users see when they login or click the logo within the application.

Users can populate their dashboard with a number of predefined dashboard widgets by using the “Add Content” box. These are broken out by intended department use, though there will be crossover functionality in some cases.

Widgets are role-restricted, meaning user role privileges and access will apply. For example, a production supervisor would not be able to access the A/R Aging or Cash Flow dashboard widgets. This makes it much quicker for users to build out their custom dashboards in a way relevant to their individual needs.

While there are a number of preset dashboards, this document will outline and describe the widgets available for use.
