Overview: What are we talking about?
The Appointment Goal Tracker Report is a report that contains a variety of information about appointment-based services to help you optimize your business performance. This report is used to gain objective insight into the historical performance of appointment-based services by comparing actual performance against preset goals.
The purpose of this report is to compare actual performance against performance goals. Prior to generating the report, your business should have pre-determined objective performance goals for each appointment-based service. The performance goals should correspond to a specific timeframe, such as a week, month, quarter, or year.
As part of Gingr's partnership with Joe Zuccarello, owner of Paragon Dog Grooming and an expert in business management for pet care businesses, we help connect businesses with this expert to best utilize this report and others like it. Joe can assist in setting performance goals as well as provide guidance on reaching those goals.
