The Primary Products Collection of Dashboards provides specific metrics on the material and labor you've sold. The data is based on "Delivered" sales from your RFMS order system. Benchmark data is also based on aggregated "Delivered" sales from other participating RFMS client order systems.
The Primary Products collection of dashboards focuses on product categories that most flooring dealers would sell (carpet, wood, tile, lvt, laminate and vinyl roll). In addition, Primary Products are considered flooring related Material and Labor sold in standardized unit of measure. In North America this the units of measure is Square Foot. All other unit of measures used are not considered as Primary and are not included in the Primary Products collection of Dashboards.
During the setup stage for Business Insights clients we review the data and how orders are entered into their RFMS order entry system. Often we find there is incomplete data at an order line. In an attempt to provide you with meaningful information, when we determine there is insufficient information at the order line, we'll mark these lines as having "Questionable Data". This allows the users of Business Insights to filter out the "Question Data" to obtain a richer data set for the dashboards. This is accomplished by the user toggling the data filters shown below.
To provide even more meaningful data, Business Insights can 'Impute' the values of Price and Gross Margin based on the overall Gross Margin of the Order. This is valuable for clients who enter lines on orders without a price value.
