Sales Velocity - Days of Inventory Available

Sales Velocity reports are used to see how quickly something has been selling so you can plan your inventory accordingly. 
As a Premium Report, this is available on all Paid Plans of Report Toaster. If you aren't signed up, follow these steps here to upgrade your account.

A few terms to be familiar with in order to understand Sales Velocity Reports

1.) Inventory available: The quantity of units you currently have in stock for a particular variant.

For example, if I have 5 of a particular T-shirt in stock in my warehouse, the Inventory available would read as 5. 

2.) Quantity: The units sold for a particular variant. This number does NOT factor in Returns (for that, replace the column with Net Quantity instead).

For example, if I sold 10 of a particular T-Shirt, the Quantity would display as 10.  

3.) Quantity Sold (Daily): The average number of units sold for a particular variant each day. This number is worked out based on the Quantity (above) divided by the number of Days in the Date Range (top right)

For example, if I sold 10 of a particular T-Shirt in a 30-day period, then the calculation would be 10/30 = 0.33  

4.) Sell Through Rate: The Sell Through Rate (STR) for a particular product/variant/vendor. This is worked out as a percentage by taking the Quantity Sold divided by (Inventory available + Quantity Sold) x100 

For example, if I sold 20 of a particular T-Shirt and I had 10 still in Stock, then the calculation would be 20 / (10+20) x 100 = 66.67% 

5.) Days of Inventory Available: This compares the Quantity Sold (Daily) with the Inventory available to determine how many days of stock you have left. 

For example, if my Quantity Sold (Daily) of a particular T-Shirt was 0.33 and I had Inventory available of 5 in Stock, then the calculation would be 5/0.33 = 15.   

Like all Report Toaster reports, these reports are fully customizable - so you can adjust the date range, add/remove columns, introduce a filter or change the sort to suit your individual needs. See our basic guides here for more info.
