  1. What is a KPI Profile?

    A KPI profile is a subset record of KPIs that is used to store the interested KPIs of the ship operator. Depending on the structure and the company needs, account managers are entitled to select and assign KPI Profiles to ships from a predefined list of built-in KPI profiles. Also, the KPI profile refers to the explicit visual representation of ships performance data.

  2. What is the KPI Profile used for?

    KPI Profile concept provides a set of benefits such as:

    • Simplifies the way users perceive the KPI Standard
    • Limits the KPI Standard as per the company needs
    • Reduces the data entry volume 
    • Customized visual representation of the ship’s performance 

  3. Who can define KPI Profiles and where?

    In case the built-in KPI Profiles do not fulfil the business needs of the company, the account manager has the necessary permissions to create a new or duplicate a KPI Profile based on an existing built-in profile. 

  4. Where is the KPI Profile assigned to?

    By default, the KPI Profile is assigned on the account level. During registration, the KPI profile is selected and later on the account manager can change the assignment according to the company needs. In addition to the account, the account manager is able to assign a KPI Profile on the SBU (Strategic Business Unit) level. Ships under a SBU with a KPI Profile assigned adopt the respective KPI profile. Otherwise, the ships adopt the profile assigned to the account. 

  5. What are the effects of the KPI Profile?

    One of the main benefits of the KPI Profile is the customized visual representation of the ship’s performance. KPI Standard and My Ships pages are both affected by the KPI Profile. SPIs, KPIs and PIs are divided into primary and secondary groups. The account manager can also define the grouping and ordering of the Performance Indicators that makes the data entry more convenient. Finally, PDF reports adopt the KPI profile and show ship’s performance accordingly. 

  6. What is primary and what is a secondary KPI?

    A primary KPI is selected by the account manager to be in the KPI Profile. Primary PIs are the PIs, which should be entered in order to calculate the primary KPIs of your KPI profile whereas primary SPIs are the SPIs to which a primary KPI contributes to. Similarly, a secondary KPI is excluded from the KPI profile and secondary PIs should be entered to calculate the secondary KPIs.
