Automated daily reporting
Using powerful automation in Linnworks (RCG’s order management system) and PostTrans Importer, Sales and COGS are now interfaced to Sage on a daily basis. Finally, WEBXEL’s Sage Exporter connects Sage with a custom-built dashboard reporting suite, available to RCG by 9am every working day. This dashboard provides a visual snapshot of business performance up to the close of the prior working day, with functionality to drill down by channel, customer, order, supplier, product line and country, while seeing pricing, mix and FX impact at a granular level.
While most SMEs report high level financials (an end of month Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet and perhaps a cash flow statement), much less drill down to the next layer on a regular basis, which is where insight lies to inform strategic decisions.
