SaaS Solution Offers CEOs Greater Strategic Agility with Deeply Customized, Highly Visual Platform
StrategyBlocks (www.strategyblocks.com), the leading SaaS-based solution for strategic planning, management and execution, today announced the release of StrategyBlocks 4.0, a highly customizable, visually compelling platform for enterprise strategic management. StrategyBlocks 4.0 enables CEOs and other executives to turn strategic vision into tactical execution, easily sharing data across departments and business units, and cultivating company-wide involvement in strategic execution.
Using a compelling visual system of cascading ‘blocks,’ StrategyBlocks merges quantitative and qualitative data, linking subjective data such as workplace performance with more structured data such as KPIs. The company’s Strategic Health feature allows organizations to personalize and stay apprised of all factors influencing execution performance, including the ability to monitor and mitigate risk across all business units. This holistic, visual profile offers a real-time, dynamic view of execution across the entire organization, quickly identifying where, when, and to what extent challenges exist in the strategic planning chain, and where improvements can be made.
“Most organizations are naturally risk-averse, but despite their best efforts they still struggle to translate a sound strategic vision into action,” said Craig Catley, managing director, StrategyBlocks. “Our mission at StrategyBlocks has always been to make implementing and executing strategy a more seamless, successful process. Our new 4.0 version does just that by enabling organizations to be more agile and dynamic, while enjoying greater visibility into strategy across the company, improved communication, and real-time insight into ongoing performance metrics.”
StrategyBlocks 4.0 is the company’s latest SaaS offering and provides significant upgrades to the user experience including deep customization options, seamless reporting capabilities, and a unique ‘Cascading Metric’ feature that simplifies KPI reporting and monitoring. Companies who use StrategyBlocks to connect to their strategic plan in a highly visual way increase overall business agility and achieve more powerful insight into success metrics and growth opportunities than ever before. Additional enhancements to StrategyBlocks 4.0 include:
– Deep customization toward individual preferences
– Data updated in real-time, ensuring complex executive reports are always accessible
– Mobile-ready engagement, with thumb-controlled navigation optimized for tablet use
– Simplified KPI reporting and monitoring
– Removal of redundancies and inefficiencies by compiling all related data under Cascading Metrics for a holistic view
“StrategyBlocks helps us break down large, obtuse metrics into smaller components, then personalize to our unique needs, ensuring we are tracking the right data to meet our goals,” said Debbie Irish, CEO of the Geneva Centre for Autism, an international leader in the development and delivery of clinical intervention services and training. “The entire platform is incredibly intuitive, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how readily it has been adopted by employees across the organizations, regardless of technical skill.”
