Roland Garros 2011: the Live Dashboard your boss don't want you to see

Like every year, at the same period, productivity in thousands of businesses in France will drop significantly. The reason? Roland Garros, one of the most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments where the best tennis players from around the world come to compete.

And like every year, you’ll be torn between watching the matches and make any progress in wrapping up this urgent report your boss wanted 48 hours ago.

Don’t try and deny it, we know.

And we know that during the competition, you’ll be constantly staring at dozens of web pages, searching for the latest results, while elusively trying to hide your lack of motivation behind an Excel spreadsheet.

Fortunately, Netvibes is here to help. To make sure you won’t miss a single bit of this sports event, while keeping your computer desktop clean and tidy, we’ve set up a live Dashboard that will cover everything you need to know: Twitter and social networks monitoring, press releases, player profiles, scores, videos and much more. And all this in real time of course.

The only thing we can’t provide is an alibi generator to help you explain your loss of productivity to your boss.

All in all, a great showcase of all the tools we provide with our Dashboards to allow you to “listen, learn and act” in real-time: SmartTagging, SmartFilters and our new Bookmarklet.

Visit now to discover this new live Dashboard!
