Early 2015 IKEA approached Except Integrated Sustainability to develop a data driven dashboard to inform various target audiences about their catalogue's sustainability performance.
As an associate of Except my part was to design the UI and UX of the dashboard while keeping in constant communication with the project managers, developers and our contacts at IKEA. The overload of information (i.e. the data on sustainability performances) uploaded by paper and print suppliers to the dashboard has been simplified and compressed into an easy to navigate interface. This enables those responsible at IKEA to quickly analyse the suppliers' performances without having to go through overly complicated Excel sheets or Word documents.
We also added an element of gamification to the dashboard; by performing well the suppliers can earn badges which not only motivate them to do even better (to potentially receive more and bigger orders from IKEA) but that can also be shared on social media as proof of their sustainability performances.
The screenshots on this page showcase an anonymized version of the supplier's dashboard. Details have been left out for reasons of security and privacy. For more in depth information on the dashboard and read about it in IKEA's "own words" check out this article on 2degrees.
