Description

Zuar’s Accelerator for Financial and Revenue Intelligence enables you to understand your overall business performance, how and where your business is growing this year, what strategic growth could look like in the future, and how the inventory of the products that you carry will change–and impact your business–over time.

From the summary KPIs in the Financial Intelligence Toolkit, you can navigate to the

  • YTD Growth Watch, where deep details about growth across key sectors of your business enable you to optimize how your organization operates;
  • Strategic Growth Forecast, where you can see the relationship between orders and revenue growth and provide more accurate and data-driven sales forecasts to your leadership;
  • And the Inventory Supply Planner, where you can make sure that inventory stock levels will enable your revenue goals.

Zuar built this Accelerator from their work with CPG and Retail customers: click here to connect with them to learn more.
