6 Key Performance Indicators Every Small and Medium Business Should Track

Posted April 26, 2021

No matter the operation’s size, every business strives for better profitability and customer retention. To do so, companies often track several key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor and forecast business growth. While there are many viable KPIs to track, small and growing businesses are often encouraged to monitor the following indicators:

  1. Order accuracy rates address how often orders are shipped with the correct products to the correct customer within the correct allotted time.
  2. Inventory turnover rates can record the fluctuating demands for any particular product while assessing your ability to move goods down the supply chain.
  3. Gross profit margins provide a clear picture of final profits after operational expenses such as labor, shipping, and the like are paid off.
  4. Cash flow forecast assists small businesses in predicting the costs of high demand, so they can make adjustments accordingly before profits are hindered.
  5. Funnel drop-off rates allow you to see how many potential customers abandon purchases to optimize business tactics.
  6. Market share clearly depicts how your business compares to competitors by measuring company sales with total industry purchases.

How to Maximize Visibility and Minimize Costs at the Same Time

Posted March 25, 2021


Inventory management is a prominent struggle for most businesses, especially small and growing warehouses. Inconsistent stock counts can severely impact customer loyalty as they lead to surprise out-of-stocks, shipping delays, and misplaced products within the warehouse.

To do so, businesses have sought to eliminate:

  • Paper-based systems – Small data entry errors can yield enormous costly consequences over time.
  • Disparate spreadsheets – Although digital spreadsheets are less likely to contain errors compared to paper-based systems, disparate logs can cause more confusion in the future as employees must navigate through several databases to find needed information.
