Linear Gauge by MAQ Software


Compare progress against identified goals and warning zones


Setting targets upfront and working towards them over a period is common in all industries across all functions. Linear Gauge by MAQ Software shows progress toward a target value, such as achieved sales versus targeted monthly sales. This visual allows users to include multiple data points, which is useful to illustrate trends such as monthly or year-to-date (YTD) completion rates. Information displayed includes the present value, percentage toward completion, and two optional trend values.
