Home Dashboard

Home Dashboard

This dashboard is intended to provide a quick, simple snapshot of the current week and provide immediate insights. From this page, you are just a handful clicks away from endless possibilities in data analysis and benchmarking your results against our entire consortium.

Performance Dashboard

Performance Dashboard

This dashboard focuses on spreadsheet analysis by unit, dma, state or region in any time or historical period.

Scorecard Dashboard

Scorecard Dashboard

The Scorecard provides an “accordion-style” analysis from the highest level (country) to the unit level within a single instance. Levels are expanded when rows are clicked. For example, clicking on a region’s data will make the states or DMA within that region appear. Having the ability to “drill-down” all the way to the unit level is a perfect way to tell a story and analyze all levels of data at once.

Markets Dashboard

Markets Dashboard

Broken down by region, state or DMA map, the Markets dashboard provides spatial analysis. The map contains areas that are shaded in proportion to the measurement of the statistical variable being displayed on the map. It’s an easy way to visualize how a measurement varies across a geographic area or how it shows the level of variability within a region.

Trends Dashboard

Trends Dashboard

Trends is a powerful, multi-metric analysis tool used for time series analysis. Line colors define the data type (company, segment or industry data). Trendlines are also marked with its respective metric marker and data type color, but are also distinct for having a dashed line.

We help our members make informed decisions, with interactive business intelligence tools that can quickly identify trends, opportunities, and deep insights into restaurant performance at the unit or market level. Combined with People Report, we are revolutionizing decision-making as our members receive productivity analytics including Sales Per Labor Hour. Our just released BBI 2.0 is also revolutionizing the way our members view their data, with state of the art technology introduced in November 2014; a beautiful, seamless and now mobile way to stay on top of the numbers.

Today, Black Box Intelligence identifies the unique performance data points that reveal what defines best in class performance in the restaurant industry. The BBI consortium continues to grow, currently tracking the performance of 190 DMAs, 110+ distinct brands, and 20,000 restaurant units representing close to 50 billion dollars in annual sales revenues.
