Sales Comparison Reports

There are two Sales Comparison Reports:

  1. Sales Comparison Summary – shows sales performance based on specific parameters such as company, channel, comparison, comparison method, comparison type, and intervals back. This report gives you an overall picture of your business. 
  2. Sales Comparison Detail – more focused on going into detail for specific products and vendors. It provides more granular information, allowing you to generate the report based on additional criteria such as manufacturer, brand, vendor, product type, product group, and SKU.
