The Reports


Close Period Report

Providing information about the modules you use, this report is a new version of the existing report. You can select the time period you are running it for as well as the module.

Compliance Report

Like the Compliance page in the outlet, this gives you a head office view around the ‘housekeeping’ at each outlet. Do they have orders they should have booked off? Do they have invoices awaiting approval? Have they done their stocktake?



This shows data entered in the Cash Sales field in Outlet, Finance.

Cash Sales tab

This will show a summary of data as entered into Indicater. You can click on the downward arrow on the left to see the contents of each line.

Item Breakdown tab

Useful for clients with epos integration, this will show you the total of each item sold for the outlets and date range selected.

Internal Sales

This report shows the internal sales for the selected date range and outlets.

Internal Sales tab

This will show the transactions entered based on their department and category. You can expand the detail by using the arrow on the left of the line.

Summary tab

This gives you the option to see the data broken down by department,s category, cost centre etc.

Theoretical Margin

This report is for epos clients who want to compare the theoretical cost of their sales with the actual cost of sales.

The cost of sales is calculated using the opening stock take, the purchases (this looks at order that have been booked off during the period), the stock transfers and the closing stock.

The report is to be run in conjunction with your stocktaking so if you do a monthly stocktake, you can’t get data for a week and we need to include the stock movement.

Wastage is not included in the cost of sales.

Swipe Card sales

This report has a tab for the Loader Cash transactions, another for the Swipe card sales and a Summary which shows the liabilities.


Outstanding Estimates

This is an updated version of the existing report, now giving you the ability to drill down to see the contents of a transaction. This report shows outstanding orders (orders which haven’t been booked off), outstanding estimates and those estimates which have an EDI invoice/credit note pending approval.

Order Summary Report

This is a brand new report that enables you to see the invoice status of orders placed within a specified period.


This is an updated version of the existing purchasing reports, now giving you the ability to drill down to see the contents of a transaction.

As with the previous Head office Purchasing report, you can choose to see the data based on the invoice date, or click the option Show transaction dates and history to see the data based on when it was entered.

  • If you choose to see the history, you will see the estimate on the date it was booked off, and the reverse and the invoice on the date the estimate was converted into the invoice. You will see invoices in the period they were entered with the late invoiced date as the invoice date.

  • If you choose not to see the estimates, you will see the final invoice value dated as the invoice date (or late invoice date if there is one)

Local cash purchases are not yet included in this report

Supplier Favourites

This new report shows you the outlets who have a supplier as a favourite together with the account number. This is really useful if you want to cross reference account numbers with your supplier, check for duplicates or missing data.

Item Variance

This report is for clients with epos integration. The report uses the last stocktake as the closing stock figure and the previous stocktake as the opening stock. It uses the sales linking to the recipes, purchases, transfers and wastage to calculate a theoretical stock figure and provides a variance between the theoretical and actual closing stock.

Line Checks

This report is for clients with epos integration who want to record line checks and and get a variance using those line checks. There is an option to select a date range but it’s not necessary to pick a date. If you don’t the report will use the last line check as the closing stock and the previous stocktake as our opening stock. You will just see the items that are in the line check.
