Ari knows this necessity and has included retail reports covering every possible aspect of your business. The reports are related to sales, tax, expiry date, inventory, loyalty, and whatnot. This makes sure you get the required information in one go.
Through the analytical dashboard, one can compare the performance of all the stores, and even for different time frames. For all your stores, there are two dashboards where one is for sales and another for purchase.
You can either use the summary template or the detailed one. This feature is available for every report. In the retail sales report, you even get one additional template providing sales analytics. The idea behind providing you with a summary and detailed report is to let you know about your different business aspects in the way you want.
Ari allows its users to create a well-structured hierarchy system for their respective stores. In this structure, you can create a headquarter under which several zones appear. These several zones contain the stores where the buyers come for shopping.
While creating a report, you can choose to select multiple zones, and it will automatically cover the stores present inside these particular zones. If you wish to generate retail reports for all the stores at once, select them all. The report will appear after processing.
Filters differ as per the report you select. You need to choose the attribute according to which you wish to filter the report. For that attribute, you need to choose a filter option and a certain value. It won’t even take a minute to add the details and run the report. You can even save a template and load it for later use.
At the time of retail reports generation, you need to add a primary parameter according to which the report is generated. For instance, your primary parameter is the “Organization” for the stock analysis report. Then it will bifurcate the report as per different organizations. This feature helps the businesses to define the structure of a report as per the requirement.
Ari has bifurcated its dashboard into two parts for better absorption of data. It keeps the sales and purchase data separate, making both the dashboards appear clean. Let’s find out in detail what all information one can get from Ari’s dashboard.
From the dashboard, you can check retail analytics like which are the top five product categories that have shown the most sales. For making it easier for the user to understand, the data is made available in the form of a donut chart.
For every store, you can compare the sales of the current year and the previous year. However, if you wish to compare any of the two years, you can change the later year as the current year. Ari will automatically select the former year as the previous year.
Through the dashboard, it is possible to compare the sales and sales return for different stores. It could be helpful to check POS Reports like this when you need to keep a check on the sales return of various stores. In case if one store is showing high sales return in comparison to other stores, then it will alert the user.
You purchase several products, and ideally, the top-purchased product must be the one which is sold the most. However, if the case is different, you can find out from the analytical dashboard. You can check products for which your retail business shows the highest purchase and the same for the categories.
The top purchases can be checked for every organization. This lets you compare the customer demands of different stores. With its help, you can make purchase-related decisions.
You can compare the product requirement of the previous years to the current year. It will let you know the increment or decrement in demand for any product. Based on that, you can prepare yourself for the upcoming purchase needed.
