We can create a complete Dashboard site with multiple pages, with reports and charts that pull data from various sources. This would be an ideal place for managers to track status/progress of projects, assets, resources, etc. We can create different dashboards based on the target audience and have separate dashboards for the Sales team, the IT team, and project managers, etc.
