The key is capturing Multi-Dimensional data at the source.

This information can be made available in a dashboard view anytime, anywhere using up to date data.

Their management team can then slice and dice their financial and operational information on an iPAD while waiting for a plane to start boarding, or while on an issue call with a member of their team.
