As business owners we try hard to improve the performance of our business year on year. We compare numbers for various periods and try measuring the growth that has been achieved.

Putler’s latest feature makes analyzing a company’s performance super simple. It brings together all the .metrics you wish to compare in a single place.

Why is it important to measure performance?

One of the most necessary catalysts to grow is to compare.

Only when we compare our growth to that of our competitors or best our present performance to that of our past performance, do we ignite the fire to grow and achieve bigger goals.

We created ‘Performance Comparison Insight’ within Putler.

Infinite comparison…(literally!)

You must be wondering what can you compare in this report? Right? The answer is everything…

You can compare the performance of:

  • Whole business during different periods
  • Different accounts in the same/different time periods
  • Different payment gateways
  • Different e-Commerce stores

Let’s take it one by one:

Compare your entire business

Many of us like to compare how our business performs periodically – monthly/ quarterly/ half yearly/ yearly. Using Putler’s Performance Comparison you can view such reports in mere seconds.

Viewing the annual performance of a brand

All you do is select ‘My Account’ (In this case, I’ve selected my business – Putler) and select the dates you want the comparison to be performed for. Here, I’m viewing ‘Quarterly reports’

  • The ‘My Account’ is ideally the business account that has all the data sources checked in.
  • You can compare the performance of any other team (or Strategic Business Unit (SBU)) during different periods similarly.

Compare different accounts/ teams/ SBU’s

Another way to use this feature is comparing different accounts/ teams/ SBU’s. Either for the same period of during different time periods.

Suppose you have 2 businesses A and B. And you have created two teams in Putler.

Team 1 – Business A and Team 2 – Business B.

You can select both these teams and then select either the same date range or different date range and view which business performed better.

Compare different payment gateways

One dilemma we store owners have is to decide on which payment gateway to remove and which to keep on our website. But not anymore…

Putler’s Comparison dashboard solves this issue.

Firstly you need to configure the payment gateways as separate teams.
For example – Team 1 – PayPal and Team 2 – Stripe. Once done, select the teams and compare their past performance (preferably in the same date range).

Then look at how both the payment gateways perform in terms of the number of orders, revenue, refund rate, upgrades, LTV etc.

Once you figure out which payment gateway is the most preferred by your customers, stick to that.

Compare different E-Commerce stores

Just like payment gateways, you can compare the performance of e-Commerce systems too.
