Within InfoCaptor Dashboard software, every component is allowed to look different by providing different color schemes for background, border, text and the actual graphics.

This gives lot of freedom for a creative designer. For average business users , we don’t need this much creative freedom, a standardized dashboard theme that looks aesthetically beautiful is more than enough.

In this mini update, we introduce pre-build dashboard themes that can be instantly applied to any dashboard within the designer.

Here is a sample of different dashboard themes, you can see white, gray, dark, red, blue theme examples. You can even apply background images to the entire dashboards or use image backgrounds for each chart or widget.

We evaluated Xcelsius and Qlikview and the cost for organization to implement dashboards was quoted over 10,000 USD. For fraction of the above quoted price, we were able to buy the licenses for the web based dashboard software and get some free training. This is truly a dashboard software for small businesses like us.
