An executive information system (EIS) is the type of information system used by executives to access and manage the data they require to make informed business decisions. Although there are tools for managing an executive information system, the EIS in itself is not a tool, but rather, an infrastructure within a company. In the hierarchical structure of information systems, the EIS is at the top and is designed to convert all relevant data (from project to process to budget) into aggregated information that makes sense and brings value to the overall business strategy.
When managing an executive information system within an enterprise, having the right software is important. The EIS management software by AtTask provides senior executives with a robust all-in-one tool that optimizes the infrastructure and flow of information within a company. What makes AtTask ideal for managing an executive information system is that the very software used by executives is also the same software used by project managers, individual team members, and everyone else within a company. Different functions are built for different job roles, of course, but because everybody uses the same platform, the upward flow of information can be automated, giving executives powerful reports that provide nearly instantaneous visibility of the work being done.
AtTask gives executives an arsenal of reporting tools for analyzing data. Fully customizable dashboards, portal profiles, groups, views, filters, and user-friendly layouts make it easy for executives to make relevant decisions based off of information that would otherwise be extremely complex (view the full Feature List). Through this system, executives can quickly see how the accomplishments of teams and departments are aligned with the overall business strategy. As an online, social-rich tool, AtTask heightens a company’s power of collaboration, creating a collective workforce that transforms the way an enterprise manages its executive information system.
