How Do I - Use and Produce KPI Data

Your Influence software has an in-built KPI (Key Performance Indicator) reporting function. This allows users to analyse figures stored by the system for rates such as Candidates added, Clients added, CVs sent or Matches created.

All the figures are generated from the JOURNALs and logs that are created each time an action is performed within Influence. i.e. If it wasn’t done through Influence, it isn’t counted. Therefore you should encourage all consultants to send CVs, book interviews, etc., through Influence in order to collate your figures.

How to run the KPI data reporting

 The reporting is a two-stage process. Data is imported from the system into the KPI data module, and then a separate option is used to allow analysis of that data.

Step 1: Import the latest journal data.
Go to Maintenance > Reporting > Build KPI data.   The system will display a dialogue box stating the last time the figures were updated. Clicking [OK ] will import data up-to the time you run the import.

Tip: It is often a good idea to do this either weekly (perhaps every Friday) or Monthly (last day of the month)


Step 2: Analyse the KPI Data

 Go to Maintenance > Reporting > Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s).

The system will display a screen from which you can select various options for listing the KPI’s. It is possible to view a huge combination of figures, and it is impossible to list all combinations.

Common views of data are

The information screen shows the last-built date for the data in the title bar of the window, and thus any figures displayed only include actions performed prior to the stated date.

To view data simply make your criteria selections(s) then click the [Display] button (bottom left) to show the figures.

The figures shown on-screen can be exported to MS Excel simply by clicking the blue [Excel] button at the bottom left of the screen.

If particular views or criteria are regularly used they can be saved as ‘favourites’
Choose File > Save As

Use the dialogue box to give the view a name, and decide if this is a personal or ‘global’ favourite.
