Monthly Sales Dashboard

Why use a monthly sales dashboard?

A monthly sales dashboard makes monitoring progress easy and accessible to your entire team. When your sales team has access to the business targets and current performance, it creates transparency and alignment within the department. The team no longer has to rely on weekly status reports from an Excel sheet that has to be updated continuously.

Dashboards turns raw data into simple visualizations that make it easier for teams to understand their progress and any areas they may be falling short. A sales dashboard is beneficial for teams who:

  • Want to track sales performance in real-time
  • Have business goals and targets to report on
  • Want to make data-driven decisions
  • Want to avoid excel sheets for reporting sales metrics and KPIs
