Vanilla Progress analyzes these productivity metrics so users can first pinpoint how every customer visit and spending impacts the overall sales trend, and exactly where to drill down for further analyses.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2011
Small retail owners acknowledge that analyzing sales numbers can be both daunting and time consuming. An average small retail business often faced with dozens to hundreds of product categories and SKUs, a myriad of pricing schedules and potentially thousands of purchases a day. Moreover, the current economic climate has resulted in lower sales for many small businesses. These unsettling issues inspired Vanilla Progress to launch a simple and straightforward sales analytics tool with powerful capabilities, effectively becoming the first line of defense for retail owners.
Unlike other accounting tools and software, Vanilla Progress focuses on overall sales by mining basic POS cash registers’ sales and transaction data to yield productivity metrics which alert users of sales trend swings in a timely manner. This gives small retail operators the valuable dashboard to gauge overall sales performances by understanding the impact generated by changes in critical metrics including: average customer spending, average transaction productivity, average unit sales, and sales penetration amongst those customers.
