Salesmatrix is based on a simple premise:
The components for every business transaction can be summarised in a simple formula:
Customer A buys X units
Salesmatrix takes a collection of business transactions and creates a four dimension "matrix" from them. This matrix is literally A x B x C x D.

Salesmatrix creates transaction cross-sections, allowing the data to be viewed, compared and sorted. Some examples include:

This formula can be modified to incorporate different business models, shuch as Professional Services, where the transaction may be defined as "Client A received X units of Employee B's time who performed Worktype C in Period D for which we charged Y Dollars and expect to make Z margin".
