Products – Top Performers
One of the important pieces of understanding business performance is knowing which products are rented the most and which ones are not. We have 2 ways of measuring this – Rental Revenue, and Rental Duration. This allows us to understand the true impact of the products to the business.
First, we will see the top 10 Asset categories and bottom 10 Asset categories.
We can also see the top and bottom performing assets.
In addition to that, we would want to look at a specific product and understand its performance. We can choose a product and see its performance summary during the reporting window.
We can see the current inventory status of the product.
We can also see the sales quantity trend by months of that product.
Another important aspect to understand is best customers.
We can choose one specific partner and see their details as well.
Finally, the Assets sheet, the Customers sheet and Order Headers sheet also have useful information that we can filter on to get to the data we need.
