ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Pinnacle Corp., a leading supplier of automation technology to the convenience store and petroleum industries, has announced that it has been recognized as an Excellence in Dashboard Design winner for its enterprise performance management (EPM) business intelligence solution.
At the annual MicroStrategy World conference held in Las Vegas in January, Pinnacle's most recently completed EPM business intelligence dashboard was selected as "Excellence in Dashboard Design" winner, chosen amongst some of the world's leading technology companies for abilities to compile and deliver powerful business intelligence data into easy to use graphical formats for use by all levels of corporate users.
Pinnacle's winning feature focused on bringing together fuel delivery data, analyzing purchases, invoices and driver efficiencies, to provide a visual and informative dashboard.
"The Pinnacle team did great work to combine all of the elements that we feel make a great information dashboard!" said Michael Rahm, product manager at MicroStrategy.
Pinnacle's EPM solution manager, Jane Sinn Gabriel, described the effort. "In a few simple steps, a user can assemble any dataset and create multiple tiers of analyses and graphical illustrations in a package that is usable and useful. The introduction of these new tools makes Pinnacle's EPM solution better for Pinnacle clients. We are thrilled to be recognized for this success."
