Lead to Cash Example

Part II

In the above example, we saw that Sales Org 0001 had 367 incomplete items and this is clearly a problem for this sales org. Now, we will filter by another Sales Org, R100 and compare the results. Click the Play button below to begin running the second analysis for Sales Org R100.

Part II

By filtering through Sales Org R100, you can see that there were only 41 incomplete sales orders which show that there are no delivery issues here. Therefore, we could use R100 for internal benchmarking as this shows best practices for sales delivery. Internal benchmarking is looking within your own company to determine the best methods for conducting business.
