Innovative business planning

Track your business's successes and obstacles with this powerful tool.

KPI Scorecard is an innovative business-planning tool that allows users to track performance and set goals on a month-to-month basis. With plenty of features and options for customization, KPI Scorecard is a great way to break the big picture into smaller, more manageable pieces.

The program's interface is fairly intuitive, and although there is a detailed PDF Help file included with the program, we were able to get started without consulting it. The program's template includes three metrics--Revenue, Profit, and New Customers--that users may wish to track; these can be edited and added to in order to reflect important business goals. For each metric users enter the actual and target numbers, and the program calculates the percentage of the target that was met. There's plenty of space to record comments, major successes and obstacles, and plans for the following month. Several graphs and charts allow users to view their data in meaningful ways, and the Resources section provides templates for business plans, diagnostics forms, and the like. Used consistently, KPI Scorecard can be a powerful way to reveal business strengths and weaknesses. We had one major complaint: the Help file mentions "interactive video advice," but we were unable to find it. Perhaps the full version of the software includes the videos, but there was no indication of this.

KPI Scorecard has a 30-day trial period. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
