Retail Metrics on the Vend Retail Dashboard

If you are currently on a Vend store plan that has access to the Retail Dashboard, you will be able to take full advantage of a range of advanced retail metrics.

In addition to the Sales Performance section, you will have a choice of 9 different Retail Metrics that will appear under the 'Things to Know' section.

All upcoming or outstanding stock orders and inventory counts will also appear on the home dashboard, under the 'Things to Do' section.

To add or remove Retail Metrics to your home dashboard, click the 'Show More Retail Metrics'button next to 'Things to Know'.


A window will appear where you may choose which information to show or hide on your home dashboard. To do this, tick or untick your chosen metrics and click 'Update Dashboard'.


What Metrics are Available:

My Sales Performance: This metric will let you see your personal sales performance. This can be useful if you want your cashiers and managers to track their sales on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Revenue: The Revenue metric will give you a daily, weekly or monthly snapshot of your overall earnings. If you have revenue targets, this can be a convenient way of quickly checking on your progress without having to delve too deep into further reports.

Customer Count: Enabling the Customer Count metric will allow you to track the number of customers that shop with you on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. When combined with sales data from the same period, This metric can become very useful when analysing your customer's shopping trends.

Average Items Per Sale: This metric will show you the overall average number of items that are sold in each sale. This is a simple but useful metric that will help you determine common purchasing practices of your customers (for example, whether it is normal for your customers to buy more than one product when shopping with you.)
