A new module that allows users in the softgoods industry to customise executive access to and views of company-wide data and reports has been released by Computer Generated Solutions (CGS).

The new Executive Dashboard module is a portal solution developed in IBM WebSphere. It enables top-level management to enjoy secure, real-time access to integrate "news it can use" including proprietary corporate databases, as well as research, news feeds and other collaboration/calendaring tools and information sources.
"The apparel industry increasingly is moving to decentralised operations," says Paul Magel, senior vice president of the CGS Application Solutions Division.

"Executive Dashboard permits key decision makers to generate quick, concise, custom views of company-wide data and integrate their findings with other enterprise management solutions and information sources.

"With custom access to and views of real-time/real-world 'snapshots' of company-wide performance on demand 24/7, they can react promptly to changes in market and supply chain conditions and ultimately protect their margins."
