The main space of the screen is dedicated to your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). You can click on the indicator or category and its details will be displayed below. You can always edit an indicator's properties and value.
As you can see in the KPIs table, each indicator has value, performance and progress measurements. In a respective indicator's properties, there are fields such as "value", "max", "min", "baseline", "target", "description", and "optimization".
The "value" field displays the current value of the indicator. You can edit this value manually. Take a look at the right top corner where you will see a calendar. It is used to specify a value for the indicator for a respective data point. Select the appropriate date in the calendar and then select any indicator. You will be able to change the value of an indicator for this specific date.
"Max" and "min" fields allow you to specify maximum and minimum values of an indicator. For instance, min can be 10 and max can be 100. Taking into account max, min and current value, the system will subsequently calculate performance value.
"Baseline" and "Target" are two other values that are specific for your current task. For instance, "Baseline" might be 30 (for example, the average historical value of your KPI) and the "Target" might be 80 (as achieving maximum possible value which is 100 sounds unrealistic, you should choose a more realistic value and enter it into the "Target" field). Taking into account "Baseline", "Target" and current value, the system will calculate the "Progress" value. In contrast to the performance value that takes into account "max" and "min" values, the progress value displays your success according to "baseline" and "target".
In the right bottom corner, you will see the drop-box with available charts. Play with it to find the chart that fits your current needs best.
Right above the list of KPIs, there is a toolbar with buttons that help you to manage KPIs. You can use "Add category" or "Add indicator" buttons to create your own Balanced Scorecard.
Moving up, there is a set of tabs that give you even more functionality. Right now we are viewing the "KPI" tab, but you can switch to the "Business" tab where you can manage business goals that you are trying to achieve with this Balanced Scorecard. Right in the list of business goals you can link KPI from your project to a specific business goal. In this way, you will link your strategic business goals to specific KPI and actions.
Another tab is "Strategy maps". There you can manage strategy maps for your Balanced Scorecard project. Right now there is view-only functionality, so you can view maps designed with the desktop version of BSC Designer.
Finally, there are 3 more buttons on the toolbar.
The "HTML Report" button allows you to generate an HTML report using data from your scorecard.
The "download button" allows you to download your online project as a .BSC file that you can open in BSC Designer Desktop or in BSC Designer Android. By the way, desktop and android versions can access your online account as well, so you can combine these tools in order to have your Balanced Scorecard with you everywhere - online, on the desktop, and on your Android smartphone.
Now, a few words about pricing of the BSC Designer Online. The monthly fee is calculated according to the number of projects that exist in your account. If you have 1 Balanced Scorecard project then the monthly usage fee will be as low as 30 US$. Learn more about adding funds to your account by clicking "Balance" on the top of your account.
