In this article, I want to show how dashboards (admin templates) can help your business and save up to $25 000 on development.

    1. What is a dashboard?
    2. Who would use such solution?
    3. Pros of using dashboards.
The dashboard is pieces of UI that integrate data from multiple components into a useful display, by which a user can check key information at a glance.

For example, you have a website which provides options for users to log in and manage some data or place an order for a product that you offer. All these tasks are done on the user's side (or on the front end of the site). If you want to manage all these data, user information etc, you need to have a back-end. Admin dashboards help you to create a user interface of the back-end where you can view and manage the data, understand the trends, keep track of the statistics of the product or your website, which is essential in any business.

It will be ok to use template on your project:

  • If it is a site functionality that is hidden from users and is available only for employees
  • If you need to create MVP and check whether the product works or test it on the audience
  • If it is a professional tool used only by employees
  • If your business is local or unique design is not important
  • If you have developers haven’t designer, only developers

For better understanding - using templates is like to buy IKEA furniture instead of hand made. Sometimes it’s even better because someone created a big part of routine job and you can skip two steps: creating a design and developing UI kit. If you don’t need an original solution you can use dashboard and save $15 000-$25 000 on development.

Pros of using our dashboard:

  • Consistent interface
  • Deliberate and elaborate design
  • Easy to customize
  • A lot of web components like charts, graphs, pages
  • Modern Angular technology
  • Wide possibilities to all spheres
  • Support and easy contact with developers
  • Trusted by opensource community

Of course, you can spend 300+ hours on creating your own admin template but maybe it would be better to spend this time on those things that no one can do for you.
