Do bad sales months sneak up on you? Don’t forget the power of flash reports to display timely snapshots of critical data. For example, every workday, generate a flash report that shows total new orders taken (bookings) compared with total orders filled (shippings). After you’ve established the timeframes of bookings and shippings, assess your sales staff’s activity by displaying bookings and shippings by salesperson. Use the data to establish sales goals and track progress toward these objectives. For further information about flash reports, please contact us.
