Having launched a new enhancement to its analytics earlier this month, Zepol Corporation said it will follow up with fine tuning after gathering user feedback.

Zepol, a leading trade intelligence company based in Minnesota, introduced “the dashboard tab” in early April to provide shippers with specific criteria to be displayed within the Zepol interface for rapid analysis. The Dashboard tab, based on user requests, can be updated on a weekly basis with the newest trade statistics.

“The user Dashboard is displayed every time a user logs in to the interface, thereby allowing a “one click” analysis of the criteria they have chosen to display, said Paul Rasmussen, Zepol Corporation’s CEO and president in an interview.

According to Rasmussen, the dashboard feature will allow shippers to monitor their four most important searches in one screen, thereby significantly improving efficiency and allowing for quick analysis of products, competitors, and industry trends.

Each profile can be displayed numerically or in a Line, Pie, or Bar Chart, and users are able to select the number of Items, Measure, and Time Frame. Professional and “Enterprise” users have access to the Dashboard tab and can download the reports to Excel and schedule as an emailed report.
