Feature: Online Reporting

The cornerstone of the Prime Cost Wizard program is the Prime Cost Variance report - a weekly comparison report showing sales, cost of sales and labor for a given period. But our reporting capabilities go well beyond simple comparisons.

Point-of-Sale reports are great for analyzing item sales mix, labor productivity and sales history; and most accounting packages provide acceptable profit & loss reporting - but for in depth prime cost analysis, most POS systems and practically all accounting software fall short. Therefore, many operators have turned to customized spreadsheets to fill the gap.

But unlike spreadsheets, the Prime Cost Wizard stores your sales and cost information within a SQL database. Storing information in this manner opens up virtually unlimited reporting opportunities. And the best part about using the PCW reporting tool  (other than they can be run from any Internet connection) is that all reports can be exported to AdobeÔ PDF format (great for emailing), ExcelÔ worksheets, web archive and XML.


Sample Reports
