What better way to manage your convenience stores than with a POS dashboard and scorecards populated with user-defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)? ADD Systems’ new software release offers management a quick overview tool to help them keep a finger on the pulse of their stores.
The POS Dashboard gives a real-time, immediate picture of the entire store, including transaction counts and sales by category, for each store. The Scorecards focus in on a specific area, like inside margin, to give a more detailed picture of the performance. Both the POS dashboard and scorecards can be customized with user-defined parameters and then saved as a “favorite view,” so the information is exactly what management needs and is easily accessible throughout the day. And they are worth looking at throughout the day, since they are created from real-time POS data, reflecting changes as they happen.
Did a promotion just start today? Take a look at your dashboard throughout the day to check how it might be affecting your sales.
Did a new staff member come on board this morning? Periodically, look at your dashboard transaction counts and sales to make sure there are no excessive voids and refunds.
Did you recently expand your foodservice offering? Look at your foodservice scorecard to monitor its performance, or, better yet, schedule the scorecard to be sent to your inbox automatically.
These KPI’s give a clear and quick overview of store activity, but the detail is not far behind.
- Expand groups to show departments or products that make up the total.
- Drill down on merchandise totals to see item-level detail.
- Drill down on any transactions to view the specific customer transaction/basket.
The key to managing convenience stores well is having real insight into store activity. This dashboard and scorecards offer just that. With a quick and current view of sales, management can recognize issues, trends and opportunities, and react quickly and intelligently. In other words, it helps management keep a finger on the pulse.
