The following information details the differences between our Client Dashboards and Marketing Dashboards, we hope that it will help you make an informed decision, but if you need additional assistance please contact customer service or schedule an online meeting and we'll be happy to show you the possibilities based on your requirements.

Client Dashboards vs. Marketing Dashboards

All reporting platform plans are equipped with our original Client Dashboards.  This online dashboard mirrors the Rank Ranger Platform layout to the extent of the reports you choose to include, and permissions you establish for each client.

The Marketing Dashboard is a premium feature that provides a website style framework that is customizable with access to HTML and CSS.  Additional features include a built-in dashboard navigation menu for web pages and external links, page elements that can be sized to 1/2 or full screen width for report, graph and text box layout flexibility, a WYSIWYG text editor for static or scheduled messages and embedding of files and images, templates, and support for multiple versions of the same reports and graphs.
