Description

This dashboard was built and created during my time as Systems Administrator at Central Coop with some assistance from my working partner. It consisted of 2 iPads each in 2 separate buildings near the employee time clocks. Its main purpose was to give the staff a better glimpse into how their co-op was operating on a moment-by-moment basis.

Charts of up-to-the minute sales data are retrieved from the point-of-sale server and displayed in interesting and informational ways.

Users can visit a custom "Shoutout" website and fill out a quick form to give props to a fellow coworker. The shoutout is displayed instantly on the dashboard for all employees to see. Also, thanks to the iTextSharp 3rd party library, users can also download all of the shoutouts to a PDF file for printing.

Other interesting information such as upcoming events, the current weather, and a scrolling marquee of the company's Twitter feed were also implemented.
