Oracle Corp. announced the addition of the Executive Dashboard to its Oracle Small Business Suite. According to the company, the Executive Dashboard provides owners and executives of businesses with an ability to instantly view crucial, up-to-the minute information about all aspects of their company's operations.

Oracle says that Executive Dashboard is a graphical web page that includes all of a company's critical business information: sales, cash levels, receivables and payables, inventory levels, leads, and support cases. The Executive Dashboard itself is comprised of 'Snapshots," which give executives access to key business information that they need, in a graphical interface for quick analysis, and 'Alerts," which give executives the ability to have e-mails sent to them periodically, even to their text-based wireless devices, with this same company data.

The two elements may give CEOs visibility into all of the fundamental aspects of their business. Users can drill down into the summary information from the Executive Dashboard to glean further details on critical components of the business such as large deals or overdue receivables. Layout and content may be customized to suit the needs of different businesses and different roles within a business.

The Oracle Small Business Suite is an integrated online application that helps small businesses manage all of their business processes.
