  • Track and compare productivity per period, employee, location, and area, and easily identify how each location across your chain is performing and what actions should be taken. Compare how you perform online vs. in person.     
  • Understand better how to set your pricing to grow sales and margins. Discover which of your store locations are over or under-performing and increase your performance by knowing what sells and what doesn’t.
