SmartCards: a simple but powerful tool to access, organize, and share your data

The SmartCards feature in SmartSimple Cloud enables you to tailor your data management experience, resulting in efficient organization, personalized views, and a smooth, streamlined process. With SmartCards, users can create customized cards containing specific sets of data relevant to their tasks or responsibilities, making it a breeze to access frequently used information without the need for extensive searches or navigation. This simple tool allows you to create and access a collection of commonly used data, which can be easily shared with others, either one person at a time or based on their roles within the system.

Tab Bar: effortless multi-tasking

The Tab Bar feature allows a user to manage multiple tabs within the same instance of SmartSimple Cloud. By enabling users to work on different tasks or access various data sets simultaneously, the Tab Bar streamlines workflow and improves efficiency. The Tab Bar functionality enhances productivity and ensures a smooth transition between tabs while providing customizable data views. With the ability to customize data views within each tab, users can tailor their workspaces to suit specific needs, further optimizing their experience within the platform.

Dashboards: your personalized access to real-time data

The Dashboards feature in SmartSimple Cloud offers a strategic advantage by organizing your data into digestible, clear displays. Dashboards are essentially personal portals that users can create themselves and share amongst other users within the platform. Dashboards turn relevant system data into visual insights, helping to alleviate data overload and allowing for a more intuitive understanding of complex information. This, in turn, drives value for your organization by optimizing decision-making processes and enhancing overall efficiency.

Dashboards can help enhance your personal efficiency and decision-making:

  • Clear visual insights via appealing charts and lists, enabling quick data comprehension.
  • Streamlined operations through customizable layouts, enhancing user experience.
  • Informed decision-making with access to real-time data, promoting accuracy.
