Regardless of what type of business you’re in, reporting services can be a big help. They can help you see what you’re doing right and should expand upon and they can help you see what might be limiting your success and hurting your business.
Here are some examples of various types of reporting and how it could help those business owners change, expand, correct or capitalize. Raw data can be mined and provide a plethora of uses. Custom report writing can help your business make wiser decisions.
Products Sold Reports
Looking at the trends of products sold can help you determine several things including:
* What products to stock
* What quantities to stock products at
* Helping you determine when you should do returns and / or stock rotations
* Projected sales volume forecasts
Looking at products sold by specific customer can help you determine a lot of things including:
* How to get more business from the same customers
* How to staff a client account based on volume
* How to sell products to your customers that they’re not currently buying from you
Employee Performance Reports
Performance reports for staff can be very helpful in allowing you to see where your business strengths lie and see where some of the weakest links in your business are. Reports can be used for determining how much output a clerical person is capable of. They can help you determine sales forecasts per sales rep as well. Performance reports can be tied into pay and help you with your human resources management as well when it’s time for performance reviews and for salary reviews as well. You can also use your reports to help you determine where to promote and in some cases, where to do layoffs or restructuring of your business as well.
Building Customer Lists
Making customer lists and making use of historical data can help you with sales and marketing campaigns. When you’re doing telemarketing, your customer list can very well create a new list for potential customer surveys and campaigns. That mailing list can be used for sending out information and for booking appointments for sales calls as well as sending out a holiday card.
Customer lists can also be helpful in terms of creating cold calling lists. Information mined from your existing system can help you mine for information you currently don’t have when you break data down by industry and then begin looking for competitors based on the information you have.
Industry reports can help you as well as your own reports. Data is essential in helping your business move forward and you can access data through many avenues either through your existing software or through add on software that can help you mine for valuable data.
Utilizing a reporting services company could be a great way to get information like the above as well as many other areas of data that could help you grow your business and develop your staff members substantially.
