Internal investigation software solutions, such as i-Sight, allow investigators to view cases in real time using dashboard controls.  At a glance, investigative managers can monitor the workloads of team members, detect emerging trends and identify issues. Complex information is communicated quickly through dashboards in the form of gauges, maps, charts, and other graphics that can display multiple results. Dynamic dashboards allow users to drill down to get more information on data in the dashboard.

Dashboards are extremely useful in identifying the roots of problems. In many companies, certain issues may become prevalent in a specific department or office location. The ability to identify these trends is extremely important as it provides insight into areas of potential misconduct risk. Understanding these risks ahead of time allows managers to provide additional training or prepare/update policies addressing these issues.

Dashboard reporting makes it easy to:

  • Determine which are the most common allegations and investigation types
  • Detect patterns and trends
  • Communicate the outcomes of investigations
  • Look at cases by location or other criteria
