Managing a Business: Top Performance Indicators You Need to Know

When you begin running your own shop, it is important to know how you are going to measure success. What does it look like to you and how will you know if you need to make improvements? Many business owners set themselves their own KPI’s or key performance indicators that can be regularly reviewed to ensure they stay on track.

Gross Profit

Of course, one of the biggest indicators of success is profit. However, it is not enough to simply hope that your profits rise month on month. You should set realistic yet challenging targets to ensure that you know how much you need to make to be successful.

Our EPoS systems can help you to manage these targets as it allows for reporting on your intake as well as your stock.

Customer Retention

The success of a retail business is not just built on unique sales but on returning customers. If your customers keep coming back, it’s a great indicator that you are doing something right. It may be that they love the friendly service they receive or they just can’t get quality products like yours anywhere else. Whatever it is, it’s important to identify it and work towards developing these relationships further.

You can keep track of customer information using our EPoS systems, allowing you to more effectively manage your customer relationships.
