Steer Dashboard and Global Reports

Being up to speed with maintenance, repair, and operations processes is one key to effectively managing your MRO business, may it be for ships, diesel engines, heavy equipment, trucking, HVAC, and more. Full visibility on data that show the overall health of your processes is another non-negotiable capability that enables you to drive your business to success.

Having a software that delivers the mentioned abilities makes MRO management more efficient. Commonly, businesses turn to CMMS for maintenance management. But what if there's a customizable CMMS alternative that you can easily personalize to fit your unique MRO processes without coding?

Steer Platform is a no-code software that digitalizes your operations and enables you to keep track of your key activities and make informed business decisions through its Dashboard and Global Reports features.

In using Steer as a CMMS alternative for your MRO processes, the Dashboard is the first that you'll meet upon logging in.

Global Reports: Gain insights from MRO processes in an instant

Data from MRO processes is key in creating informed business decisions. Steer makes it easier for you to generate data from your MRO workflows through the Global Reports feature.

Global Reports allow you to create reports using fields from different workflows. Any reports that you make will be accessible to all of your users which they can also re-use if needed for other processes.

As mentioned, Global Reports can easily be accessed through the dashboard,  located at left side of your screen and it will direct you to the REPORTS page.

As seen on the screen, you will find the Create Report and the Data Model buttons at the upper right side of your screen. Now, the first thing that you need to do is to build your data model where you have to select the workflow and fields for your final report output to base on.

After creating the data model, the next step is to design your report. Inside the Reports Designer, there are three steps that you will encounter. First is to select a Chart type for your report's graphical representation.

The second step is the Data Selection where you have to finalize all the fields you want to include in your report. After configuring these steps, the third and last step is to preview and publish your report.

 The Dashboard and Reports are just a few of the many powerful features that Steer has to offer to your MRO business. Steer also has an MRO Suite, complete with solution templates for Work Order Management, Inventory Management, Preventive Maintenance, and Purchase Requisition, to help you roll out digital solutions for every part of your operations fast and easy.
