Starting a new business is like planting a seed. It will take time to grow and you must keep a close eye on it regularly. You can’t let the weed grow around it neither can you let the insects destroy it before it blossoms into a big tree. Moreover, you need to provide it all the necessary components that make its life cycle: water and sunlight. If you manage to provide this all, you’re sure to get some very sweet fruits in the near future and you’ll get to taste them for your lifetime. Now, the key factors in this situation were weed, insects, sunlight and water. All these factors need to be taken care of on a regular basis and closing your eyes for even one second can cost you the sweetness of lifetime. These factors are called KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and here’s how to manage them all.


I am talking about the latest iOS app called KPI Alerts Professional that has been developed by BIZ ON Sp. z o.o. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


With KPI Alerts Professional, you can monitor the different KPIs of your business on your mobile and stay up to date with the latest changes every time. No longer do you need to check your emails or wait for your company manager to give you any drastic news that might give you a heart-attack. Just look at your mobile and you can die (pun intended). For example, if your company trades in gold, you must know the latest prices of the market and a delay of seconds can cost you millions. So let this app monitor the rates for you.

KPI Alerts fetches the data from your emails. So just create the template of the email that your company uses and KPI Alerts will adapt accordingly. You can monitor as many KPIs as you want and the dashboard will let you know of any changes in them. Red means loss, Green signifies profits and Yellow denotes minor changes. There’s also a chart at the bottom to let you know of the trend of that particular element in the recent time. If a particular KPI goes beyond the critical range, you’ll be notified with an alert and you can take an appropriate action accordingly. Adding more, you can import data from Google Analytics as well.


Adding a KPI for monitoring is a matter of minutes and monitoring it is even easier. This intuitive UI makes it a go-to app for every businessman. There are well-defined sections for you to monitor your KPIs or add a new KPI or check your messages. So it’s a very smartly designed app.

So there’s no reason I would not recommend this app to a businessman. Whether you’re a start up or growing to be big, this app can be a life-saver for you.

KPI Alerts Professional is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: intuitive UI; easy to read dashboard; monitor as many KPIs as you want (only 3 free); alert notification; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
