Sales Order Profitability reportSales Order Profitability report

The Sales Order Profitability report gives you a quick summary of the profitability of sales orders in iPoint. Clicking on any sales order listed will open it in a new window.

Available details include:

  • Design Name – the sales order number and name
  • Total – the total sale price to the customer
  • Parts Price – the total sale price of all parts (customer-facing)
  • Parts Cost – the total purchase cost of all parts (vendor-facing)
  • Parts Profit – the profit, in dollars, of all parts on the sales order
  • Parts Margin – the parts profit divided by the parts price
  • Labor Price – the sales price of all labor
  • Labor Cost – the cost of labor, calculated by using the labor phase cost for each phase multiplied by the number of hours sold for each phase
  • Labor Profit – calculated by subtracting the labor cost from the labor price
  • Labor Margin – calculated by dividing the labor profit by the labor price

Note: A question mark (?) usually indicates a problem with a math calculation. For example, since you can’t divide a number by zero, if there are no labor hours sold, the labor margin math calculation will result in an error.
