This report compares the performance of individual sale items within a location or location group for particular order modes during a specified period of time. Additionally, the report displays item sales, percent category (% Cat), percent daypart (% DP), and totals for sale departments, master sale departments and locations. 

If your company uses more than five dayparts, the report can be configured, via the Pmix By Order Mode Cmp Report page in the Company Configuration module, so that multiple daypart totals can be combined into one column.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Why is my Product Mix by Order Mode Comparison not populating? 

A: The number one reason the report is not populating is that the location did not poll on the date(s) for which you are running the report. Another possibility is that your Master Sale Departments are not set up yet. 

Q: How is the “% Cat” column populated on the report? 

A: The “% Cat” is calculated for each category based on items, sales departments, and master sale departments. The following equations are used: 

  • Items “% Cat” = Item Sales / Sale Department Sales 
  • Sale Department “% Cat” = Sale Department Sales / Master Sale Department Sales 
  • Master Sale Department “% Cat” = Master Sale Department Sales / Location Total Sales
