Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard continues the expansion of the CMS dashboard product line. (Cougar Dtails, A Financial Dashboard was CMS’s successful first dashboard release.) With Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard, users will experience a more advanced, versatile dashboard that will provide valuable and timely sales information to retailers.
Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard provides a one-stop sales monitoring system for our CMS Professional 2011 users. It combines the database tables used to compile five different reports in CMS Professional 2011 into one interactive tool. Furthermore, the user has 17 views to track and monitor their sales. Users can track how their sales are doing as a whole, and in terms of inventory movement and customer purchasing. They can also view the dashboard data for any date range they choose and filter it based on a selected data size, such as by day or month. There are multiple drill downs throughout the dashboard, with additional sorting options for the top sales views.
Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard pulls its sales data from the Point of Sale, Order Entry, Inventory and Accounts Receivable modules within CMS Professional 2011. Consisting of three main category tabs, each displays the sales data in easy-to-read graphs:
•The Sales Summary tab –a sales overview, includes 6 new mini-view charts:
◦The first mini-chart uses three gauges as the visual for a sales comparison view that tracks your sales against your projected quota per day, week, month, quarter, or year.
◦The remaining five charts display “Top Sales” by product, department, salespeople, vendor and location.
•The Sales by Product tab –an inventory sales overview, uses heat maps to visually enhance which products are top sellers within the selected timeframe.
•The Sales by Customer tab – a customer sales overview, also uses heat maps to illustrate which customers are driving sales within the selected date range.
Additionally, users can print or export every report that is pulled through the dashboard. They can export the report data in multiple formats including .pdf, .csv, .xml, .doc, and more. This export and printing function is now also available for Cougar Dtails, A Financial Dashboard.
Users also have the ability to select date ranges, data size and the number of “ranked” items they wish to see. The Sales Dashboard has multiple data views and customization options, including the ability to resize and move the views available. This means they can expand a graph for visibility purposes, or condense one that they use less often, as well as the ability to select the colors used for the heat maps.
Senior Product Manager, Lori Pennington says of Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard, “With the Sales Dashboard users can quickly monitor their revenue status through multiple views and options. They can filter, sort, and drill down to important sales data for today or multiple years. They can also print or export the data quickly and easily to meet their business needs.”
Both Cougar Dtails, A Sales Dashboard and an updated Cougar Dtails, A Financial Dashboard are included with the release of CMS Professional 2011.
