Version 9 Preview – New Reports

One of the keys to a successful retail business is in-depth sales analysis so you know what you are doing well and where you can improve. The sales analysis reports in Uniwell Lynx have been designed to help you do exactly that. Consider some of the new reports that will be included in Version 9 …

Period Sales Reports

The Daily Sales Report has been replaced by a new Period Sales Report with Daily/Weekly/Monthly options. These reports provide a way to quickly analyse sales trends over time and the optional charts make it easy to visualise the trends.

These new reports allow you to compare sales of particular items across 7 days, 7 Weeks, 7 Days of Week or 7 Months. Sales quantities, sales amounts or both can be shown on these reports and the summarise report option can be used to get an overview by supplier, location, POS terminal, group or price level.
