WUPPDR provides planning and support to foster strong  and diversified economies in its six county region.

WUPPDR seeks to produce a Prosperity Region data dashboard with timely, up-to-date information in an engaging format.

Doing so will help WUPPDR communicate critical information to a wide audience, while lowering staff burden of report generation.

  • Create a unified data dashboard on key prosperity metrics
  • Boost stakeholder engagement with easy-to-consume data presentation
  • Eliminate staff workload for generating annual update
