Analyze Order Details
By reviewing sales by both dollar amount and order amount, leaders can ensure that teams are achieving their big-picture sales goals. They can also make sure their inventory matches customers’ needs. Further, monitoring sales by country can help marketing and sales teams decide where to focus their outreach efforts.
It is also worth noting that the dashboard’s two bar charts use the multi-level drill down feature. By clicking on a bar, users can view a more detailed breakdown of its data. For instance, by clicking the tarte au sucre bar on the sales bar chart, I can see all of the companies that purchased the item and the dollar amounts of their orders. Similarly, by clicking the same bar on the order quantity bar chart, I can see how many units each company purchased.
Finally, the Product Summary grid notes the size and price of each unit, along with the number of units in stock. This widget is especially useful as it is easily searchable with the text boxes at the top of each column.
