At a glance, you will see your key metrics and how they are progressing over time and will be able to make important decisions on the fly based on these insights.
In this Report
Your Week in Review
Client Visits - The number of individual clients who visited your business in the past week. This is compared to the previous week with an indicator letting you know whether visits are up or down.
Average Bill - This is the total revenue divided by the number of client visits.
Weekly Revenue - All revenue that came into the business that week.
The figures in the Week in Review email are gross totals.
Client Visits and Average Bill are based on the information in the Performance Stats report, while Weekly Revenue is based on the information in the Staff Performance Overview report.
Product Upsell - Product upsell is important and has a huge impact on revenue. This figure lets you know how many appointments included a product sale.
Rebooked Treats - We track any client that came in during the week if you gave them a free treat service previously and if they've booked that same service and paid for it.
Discounts - We believe discounts should be kept to a minimum. We track if there is a trend for discounting and if it's become the norm instead of the exception that it should be.
Booking Cycle - We track all clients who visited in the past week and, on average, how long it has been for them since their last visit. Keeping your booking cycle low has a massive impact on your bottom line.
Online Bookings - Every appointment that was booked online in the last 7 days. This allows you to take bookings 24/7. It also frees you and your staff from taking bookings over the phone.
Note: This number will differ from the number in the Online Bookings report, as the Week in Review looks at appointments created whereas the Online Bookings report looks at appointments completed.
Online Bookings when Closed - We total all bookings from the past week that were made while your business was closed. This makes things super convenient for your clients and generates revenue for you while you sleep!
Cost of No-Shows - Any booked appointment that week where the client did not turn up. You can use No Show charging to reduce this.
Clients At Risk - This will give you the number of your regular clients that are overdue for their next appointment (based on the week reporting period).
Note: If you are using the Client Reconnect feature, this number may be larger than the number of overdue clients displayed in Client Reconnect. This happens because Client Reconnect will only display the number of those clients that are actually contactable based on available contact information and opt-in preferences.
Rebook Rate - We calculate how many of your clients that visited in the past week have rebooked their next appointment.
No of Phorest Reviews - How many of your clients left a review in the past week.
Average Review Rating - Of those reviews left, what is the average rating.
Featured Review - We pick your top review of the last 7 days.

Upcoming Week by Employee
This week by employee - Here we break down the stats for your staff over the next 7 days; The total count of upcoming Appointments, the Value of those appointments, the rate of Utilisation and their Rostered Hours. All this allows you to make proactive decisions for your business.
