Reports are the cornerstone of ABC Cloud. They give you an overview of your company's performance and help you with the daily operations
Each report consists of a blue top bar and several different views.
- Matrix view Where are the items in your ABC categorisation?
- Pareto graph Where does the curve break, which items are the most important?
- Data grid Classic spreadsheet view
- KPI Your most important key ratios by ABC category
- Trend Development over time
You can navigate between the report's different views using the buttons above the blue bar.

Various types of report
When working with ABC Cloud, your point of departure is always a report. The purpose of the report determines how you should work with it. We work on four "types" of report.
- KPI reports: Keep an eye on the company's strategic KPIs over time
- Action reports: Reports are used at regular intervals, usually every day or week
- Master report: Contains all data and can be used to create new reports
- Alarm reports: Contain item numbers that require immediate attention
Data slicer: The rapid cut from overview to item number
No matter what type of report you are looking at, you will need to "delve deeper" and see a section of the report.
If you have a report for "Dead items: Total" and want to see items from a particular supplier or a particular product group, use the data slicer at the top of the report (marked with a red circle).
Click the small arrow
- A green plus sign will appear. This is your data slicer.
- Select the column you want to "slice". I.e. you can select "supplier = name of the supplier."
Missing a Slicer? Click the green "+"-icon and choose the column that you want to slice.
Content of your report
When one or several ABC categories are deselected they will appear in a greyed out state. You will see this on your matrix, KPI-bar and trend-view. The report seen below includes AA-, BA, and CA-items.
