Get Value from your Data with Copperleaf Dashboards

Asset investment planning solutions are powerful tools, but translating their outputs into meaningful and insightful data visualisations can be challenging. Having all this information in one system can streamline planning and enhance decision making, but only if that information is visualised and communicated in a clear, digestible format for the relevant audience.

Copperleaf® offers an extensive dashboard library to ensure each stakeholder can immediately access the information they need. These dashboards provide templates and self-serve visualisations as a starting point, with the option to extend and customise according to the needs of the organisation or individual. This allows different departments and stakeholders to see the information most relevant to them, contextualise data from the Copperleaf product suite, and optimise storytelling for each audience.

In a recent webinar, we highlighted some of our newest additions to the library—including the Asset Strategy Alternative Comparison and CNAIM dashboards—and showcased some use cases from Copperleaf clients like South Staffs Water, who have been using Copperleaf dashboards to foster tactical and strategic interaction and communicate value across departments. The webinar also demonstrated the customisation options in various dashboards, and how users can leverage advanced visualisation and reporting capabilities for a range of audiences and functions.

Copperleaf is committed to continuously improving our solutions, which means we have a multi-release roadmap to ensure our dashboard library meets the needs of all users and provides the extraordinary experience we promise our clients. In the future we’ll be focusing on integrating external data and empowering more dynamic self-serve use of data to generate insight, along with creating new dashboard templates as requested by users.

Working with the Copperleaf team to create a bespoke suite of dashboards, we can now see cost and value parameters in context of known investment planning objectives/terminology, and this has been done in a way that clearly illustrates the relative merits of comparative scenarios. We are able to quickly visualise how given scenarios are performing against regulatory targets, and where specific investment interventions are driving this value.
