Greater understanding with flexible collections

Creating groups is a smart way of analysing data.

It provides a tidy method for viewing performance of individuals, or comparison between groups. Having the flexibility to create custom collections based on any criteria is one of the most useful and powerful features in Infinity CPM.

Products can be grouped based on merchandise or promotional activity, stores based on margin performance or customers on spending habits.

Collections for any occasion.

Collections can be created by selecting items you wish to group together, or calculated based on criteria you choose, such as sales volume or price. Both methods can be used to create collections of any items, such as stores, employees, products, or customers.

To select Items for a collection, use the check mark to pick out items of interest on the fly. Or take a more structured approach and use the collection window to search for and add items based on a list or certain attributes.

Calculated Results.

Calculated collections update automatically based on the criteria you choose. For example, set a collection to calculate the staff members who have a discount rate greater than 20%, each day you come back to view this collection, it is recalculated with the latest data.

This is incredibly useful to analyse information that changes on a regular basis, such as stock that is slowing moving or dead, and products sold on discount or reduced margins.

Creating your own collections provides a flexible way to manipulate your data from any angle. This makes it easier to go beyond top-level reporting, and start to see in greater detail what is happening in your business. Think about the possibilities for targeted marketing knowing who your high-value customers are… or which customers purchased product X… or who the customers are that prefer to shop in store Y.
