Security and Distribution Strategies
Start with a quick review of the set up steps covered in our Launch training. Work with us to complete a check in, ensuring BI is configured correctly for your business. We will address who in the organization needs access. How will they need to access? And what do they need access to? If restricting access is needed to one region or Group, this will also be addressed here.
Sales Reporting and reports for the sales team is often the number one priority when launching BI. Learn best practices for using the Sales Data in the Cube and get up to speed with creating sales reports for both employees and locations. We will review reports which Include Quantity, MTD Quantity, Targets and trending. If you have specific needs related to sales (for example – Primary Location reporting, including an employee ID Code etc.) come ready to ask those questions here!
After completing sales requirements most dealers shift their BI focus to Inventory. Specifically Forecasting tools which link together both On Hand and Sales data in one view. This session will provide a basic introduction on how RQ manages inventory using a ledger view of ins and outs. We will walk you through how that information is made available in BI and how you can use it in a meaningful way to achieve on hand cost and quantity balances by location or product.
From Inventory, many dealers tend to focus on Audit related reporting and creating tools to support the Ops teams. In this session learn reporting techniques which will help put controls in place around both for both the sales transaction and the order of the phone. We will highlight some the most common requests including: Refund reporting, Discount Reporting, Coupons and the concept of creating a report to show you “Open” Items only.
Hands on Development Time – Carrier Reporting
Please come to the training with an idea of the columns/rows of data your Main sales report contains. Have an excel mocked up and ready of how you would ideally see this working for your sales team / Company and a clear idea of who needs access to it. For example, you need a View by Location and also by Employee and it will be sent to all members of the team daily. What are the columns? Does it have targets?
