Essential Retail Reports to Evaluate Store Performance

Retail reports is a set of statements that are prepared by a company that sells products or services to consumers. The document typically contains  information about how sales are progressing, how much money the company has made, and what changes, if any, need to be made to the marketing or sales strategy. 

Inventory Reports

The inventory reports show how much product is on hand and what is selling. The sales reports show how much product was sold and for what price. The data in the reports tells us how much money the company has made. There are a number of inventory reports that could be used:

Inventory On Hand

Your “inventory on hand” should show how many product units you have in each store as well as the current stock value.

Analyzing the inventory of the retail store can tell us a lot about the trends of the store. This can be done by compiling sales reports and data about inventory levels. The inventory management reports help keep the company’s inventory levels in check. This is helpful when trying to figure out how much product is available to sell and how much product needs to be moved to make more money. Additionally, this information helps to keep track of which products are selling well and which ones can be discontinued.

Days of inventory remaining

When a retailer has a certain number of days’ worth of inventory remaining, they will produce a report that contains data on their sales activity over a specific period of time. This statement can help the retailer identify any patterns in their activity on a daily basis.

Inventory value report

Inventory value shows the value of inventory on hand at a specific point in time. This report helps managers keep track of the financial health of a business by providing information on inventory value.

Sales reports

A sales reports is a document that includes information about the sales of a product or service. It can also be used to create reports for the retail store.

Types of Sales Reports:

  • Retail Reports: it includes data on the items sold and the total revenue generated.

ABC analysis by product

The ABC analysis helps you understand which products to prioritize when restocking, and which products you shouldn’t invest in too heavily.

The Pareto principle is a famous bit of economics that states that for any two items of a given type, the number of items of that type divided by the number of items of another type is a constant. For example, if we have a sample of 20 items of a type A and 10 items of a type B, the Pareto principle dictates that the number of items of type A divided by the number of items of type B is always 20/10 = 2. The Pareto principle can be used to help us figure out how many items of a given type are present in an inventory. Suppose that we have an inventory of ABC items. The Pareto principle dictates that the number of items of type A divided by the number of items of type B is always ABC/ABC = 1. In other words, we have one item of each type in the inventory. If we want to know how many items of type A are present in the inventory, we can use ABC inventory analysis. This method helps us figure out how many items of type A are present in the inventory by dividing the number of items of type A in the inventory by the

ABC inventory analysis is a method used to identify and analyze stock-keeping units (SKUs) in order to improve inventory management. The ABC method consists of the following steps:

  1. Identification of all the inventory items in the warehouse.
  2. Analysis of the frequency of SKUs used in the inventory.
  3. Classification of SKUs according to the planned use.
  4. Identification of the items that are over or under-supplied.

  • Accurate inventory visibility
  • Improved decision-making
  • Enhanced communication and coordination
