provides an enterprise view of an organization’s overall performance. It
integrates financial measures with other key per formance indicators
around customer perspectives, internal business processes, and organizational
growth, learning, and innovation. Since the concept was introduced in 1992,
balanced scorecards have been implemented at corporate, strategic business unit,
shared service function, and individual levels at hundreds of organizations —
in both the private and public sectors — worldwide.

“You must have a sophisticated way to move the balanced scorecard from concept to
reality. QPR is that way for our organization.”
— David Walker, Scorecard Project Manager with the American Red Cross,
“From the software, I wanted the ability to manage the measures, add new measures,
change measures, aggregate measures, and do it very quickly and easily. I also wanted to
have a way of presenting it, via the web, to all the employees of the organization. QPR
ScoreCard not only met these requirements but was also a very cost effective solution to
what we were looking for.”
— Ben Patterson, Manager - Business Excellence, Unisys Pacific Development Laboratory.
“In order to provide performance measurement, like any measurement system, the results
must be accurate and repeatable. These results must be easy to understand and distribute.
These reports must be understood the same way, regardless of who reads them. We have
found that QPR, with its drill-down capability, is both easy to understand and easy to get
additional information when required. With QPR, it has been easy to build proper reports
that are on the Internet. There is no need to provide in-depth training on software for
executives to get performance reports, grade performance, and to understand relationships
between various internal processes.”
— Chuck Salmond, Senior Consultant, Bearing Point, Federal Group.
“Our company started using BSC on paper last year, then adopted QPR ScoreCard to track

the tool, as well as the consultants and trainers at Visum Solutions.”
