New reporting solution for multi-location merchants makes it easier for restaurants, retailers, holding companies, and other organizations with multiple locations or business entities to track their performance across all locations.
Clearent, one of the nation's fastest growing credit card processing companies, recently launched a new enhancement to Compass, which is the company's innovative suite of portfolio management tools. The Chain Reporting feature makes it easier for restaurants, retailers, holding companies, and other organizations with multiple locations or business entities to track their performance across all locations and lines of business. Merchants with multiple locations or merchant accounts are now able to see the bigger picture of how their business is performing, in addition to being able to drill down into the details for each location or merchant account.
Merchants are able to access consolidated reporting across multiple locations and then drill down into each account to see month-to-date and year-to-date volume totals and trends across all accounts. They can also get graphical breakdowns by card type across all locations and export data for each location into one convenient spreadsheet.
Holding companies also benefit from the Chain Reporting feature as they are able to monitor the performance of multiple business entities. For example, restaurant holding companies can monitor trends across each individual restaurant concept, in addition to benefitting from location sales data.
Simple graphs enable merchants to quickly identify top performing locations, as well as those that have not reached their full potential. They can perform deeper analysis by exporting the information to Excel to compare locations by volume, sales growth, average ticket and more.
In addition, merchants receive a valuable report delivered each day via email so they can skip manual data entry and get useful program metrics delivered automatically, including a daily report of the transaction count and volume for each merchant location and line of business that is broken down by card brand.
"In our commitment to providing our clients with modern, innovative solutions to grow their business and increase their profits, it is critical that Avant-Garde offers a way for multiple location businesses to easily monitor their performance and manage their activity. Thanks to the Chain Reporting feature in Compass, through Clearent our clients now have direct access to the detailed reporting they require each day in one simple interface," commented Michael Varian, Vice President of Avant-Garde Marketing Solutions, one of Clearent's progressive sales partners.
"I'm excited about the opportunities that this feature delivers to merchants, as well as to Clearent's sales partners. Merchants receive a tool that makes it easier to monitor the performance of their business while our sales partners get a feature that helps them sign larger merchants, which ultimately helps them achieve faster growth and faster profits," said Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent.
