- Customer Margin Percentage
This assessment groups customers together according to their margin levels. Set the levels appropriate to your business and selecting a Customers Category at the bottom of the screen and clicking Calculate will categorise the customers that fall into each level.
- Products Price Point Performance
- This assessment groups products together according to their price per unit. This can provide valuable insight into which price levels the business makes the most margin, and also provide insight into whether an individual customer or group of customers are more or less price-sensitive.
Changing the Threshold Value can alter the results returned. For example, if the Threshold Value were raised to 500, Customer 2 in the above example would be classified as gained and Customer 5 will be classified as Lost Previously.
- Sales Value Threshold
Sets the minimum value used as a threshold in each of the assessments
- Store to Customer/Product Category
When this is checked this will transfer the results from the assessment to the category chosen in either the customer or product aspect. NOTE: This will overwrite the current category in the dataset. Be sure to save a category set before performing this operation if you wish to retain the current categories. If you are not already in an appropriate view (e.g. Customers by Period), you will need to change to an applicable view on the grid, to view the new category created.
- Periods choice
Allows the user to choose which period the assessment is performed on.
