QuickScore was built for turbo-charged performance using the latest Ajax and J2EE web technologies. It excels with complex data calculations and linkages, and is currently being used in production environments with tens of thousands of metrics. You can set up automated data linkages with existing systems, or import data via CSV files or web forms. QuickScore is also incredibly configurable. Its advanced calendaring system allows you to create custom measurement periods so that you're not limited to just monthly or weekly metrics. It supports almost any kind of structure of any depth, making it a natural choice for any performance management methodology. Even its language and vocabulary can be easily changed. Our IT footprint is very small. Because QuickScore is a 100% web-based application, there's nothing to install on individual client machines. All users need is a modern web browser (Internet Explorer™, Firefox™, or Safari™) and they can connect from anywhere.

The proven power of scorecards combines with where-are-we-now dashboards. Scorecards also includes a powerful scorecard "alignment" function. With QuickScore, real Balanced Scorecard "Aligned Objectives" can be easily created to allow scorecards to show the performance of their own objectives and measures, or of supporting objectives across various scorecards. "Rack-and-Stack" navigation automates the creation of Strategy Maps and Organization Performance Charts, eliminating the need for laborious drag-and-drop manual creation.
Slice and dice the performance data in your QuickScore database and then create exciting Flash presentation graphs. Compare metrics within scorecards or across scorecards. Look for positive and negative trends. Then bookmark your customized report so it is available every time you login. Export with a single mouse click to Microsoft PowerPoint™, Excel™, or Word™.
A Strategy Map looks a lot like a Microsoft PowerPoint slide at first glance. It starts out as a blank canvas and you add images, shapes, text, and numbers to create a visual representation of your data. The big difference, however, is that once you make a Strategy Map, the colors and numbers automatically update based on the real data in your system. The QuickScore Strategy Map module is a perfect fit for Balanced Scorecard Strategy Maps, but they can do so much more. Use them to track key metrics, visualize geographic data, or monitor trends — no more surprises.
Strategic Initiative Action Planner
The QuickScore Strategic Initiative Action Planner manages everything in your organization that needs to get done. Auto-generated to-do lists make delegating tasks a snap and allow you to see your action items at a glance. Sophisticated Gantt charts give a bird's eye view of what is going on in your organization today, as well as what you have planned for next month or next year. Tasks and actions can track budget information and burn rates, and can be assigned to one or more individuals or groups.
Share files securely within your organization with Document Manager. In addition to supporting regular uploads and downloads, it also keeps track of different versions of a file, enabling users to track changes over time, or revert to a previous version. When paired with other modules, Document Manager becomes even more powerful, allowing you to associate files with metrics, tasks, and meetings.
On-site is the way QuickScoreTM has been traditionally sold and installed. It requires you to have your own server and IT staff to manage it, but allows you to keep all of the information on your corporate intranet. It is priced like most performance management software: a onetime license fee up front and then a 20% yearly maintenance fee for upgrades.
