How to Build KPI Tracking System: 6 KPI Dashboards You Can Benefit From

Let’s just say that you have to create a comprehensive KPI management system from scratch or add this functionality into an existing project. In that case, you can save your time and efforts by using an off-the-shelf template of the KPI tracking dashboard composed of various charts and widgets you can reorganize and customize according to your app design.

In this article, we’ll review some examples of performance tracking dashboards written in JavaScript and support flexible customization options. Let’s get started!

DHTMLX KPI Dashboard Template


The KPI tracking demo by DHTMLX provides a convenient yet easiest way to evaluate sales performance. The dashboard is made up of JavaScript widgets with Material styling that allows managing the team of sales representatives and monitoring their progress.

The list of sales reps may contain any number of employees and also display their average deal values. The KPI of each employee is displayed with interactive charts and includes the percentage of emails and calls made, number of win/loss deals, sales growth by region, and yearly onboarding.

You’re free to add custom styling or add other components. Thus, for example, you can attach any of 10+ charting widgets to monitor additional KPI metrics or add a pivot table to help users work with large data sets. DHTMLX UI library offers 20+ JavaScript widgets for developing modern web apps of any complexity. It supports drag-n-drop functionality, dynamic loading, export to Excel/CSV, flexible configuration via API, and wide customization options.

Cube.js KPI Dashboard


The following dashboard is built with React, GraphQL, and Cube.js, an open-source framework. The default template includes a set of dynamic dragged charts by which users can monitor revenue growth within a year, the number of completed orders, and product specifications. However, you can add new charts or modify the existing ones. You may choose a proper KPI metric to track, set a period, select a chart type, and apply filters if needed.

FusionCharts KPI Dashboards

FusionCharts is a JavaScript charting library with a broad spectrum of configurable components. The company also offers a set of dashboard templates for KPI tracking built with jQuery, React.js, and Bootstrap.


The sales management dashboard allows users to access key company information concerning their most popular products, high-sales regions, and top performers over the years. It includes four tabs, one of which focuses on KPI monitoring.

Employees can assess the relative cost of goods sold, average shipping time in days, and customer satisfaction level from “very unsatisfied” to “neutral” and “very satisfied”. Besides, the dashboard provides a deep insight into product categories by enabling users to click on each column of the inventory chart. It shows units of inventory and the cost in thousands of US dollars sold during the selected year.


The online retail dashboard displays the monthly performance of an online store. It comprises such KPI metrics, as total revenue, purchase rate, and orders trend. Users can also see sales contributions from large e-commerce platforms including Amazon, eBay, and Etsy, know the number of orders from different US regions, monitor total product views and checkout rate.

AnyChart Dashboards for KPI Tracking

AnyChart offers ready-made dashboard solutions, several of which can be used for KPI monitoring. They are built with Jquery, Bootstrap 3 and styled following Google Material Design guidelines.


The first one is a technical support dashboard designed to organize the work of the tech department. The dashboard consists of interactive donut and bar charts, each of which is responsible for displaying specific metrics. Therefore, you’ll be able to track the number of overdue tickets, types of problems users faced, percentage of tickets by customer types, and statistics of tech support engineers with the ratio of open, escalated, and resolved tickets.

The ticket timeline displays the number of tickets received via call center, email, website, and live chat daily. Users may choose between a line or stacked column charts to display these data by clicking a button. The technical support dashboard allows tracking KPI metrics on a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis. Plus, users can set necessary periods with the help of a built-in date picker.


The second example is a wine sales dashboard that covers the basics of any sales monitoring dashboard tool and allows users to keep an eye on such performance metrics as sales growth, average revenue, and sales by region. It includes 4 tabs, each of which allows evaluating the effectiveness and specifications of selling wine in France. The first tab provides a general view where users may assess monthly revenue, top 5 regions in terms of productivity and sales. The other three tabs disclose the situation for particular categories of wine, sales team rating, and evaluation of sales by the French region.

AnyChart provides a set of 70+ JavaScript/HTML5 charts for data visualization in web desktop and mobile apps. It includes pre-built themes and palettes to adjust charts’ look and feel and drawing tools to show annotations. Users can share charts via social networks like Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook as well as save them in PDF, PNG, JPG, or SVG formats.

By tradition, I’d like to conclude by inviting you to share your experience of using KPI tracking dashboards described in this article or add other examples in the comments below.
