We’ve got an exciting feature update today. If you login to your Vend account, not only will you see our brand new navigation and look, but you’ll have access to our completely revamped Vend Reporting.
With the new Vend Reporting, you get all the analytics tools you need to understand your business and make the right decisions to achieve retail success. It’s customizable and flexible. Build your own reports using a wide range of variables, and use filters to get exactly the information you need.
Quickly and easily dive into your sales data to see how your physical and online stores are performing, what products are making you the most money, who your top-selling salespeople are, find your best customers, identify any problem areas that can be improved, and much more.
You’ll find the new Vend Reporting under “Reporting” in the new menu, but all your other important links are in the same place. The older version of our Reporting suite has been removed, but you can run the same reports that you’re used to in new Reporting. Check out this handy guide to see how.
