Dimension Breakout Managed Skill Icon.jpg

Use this skill to:

  • Determine which brands/flavors are leading the category?
  • Which ones are leading growth?
  • How am I doing compared to my key competitors?

Dimension Breakout will compare absolute value and growth across different subjects and metrics, identify top & bottom performers, and rank highest growing/declining performers in the market for a single time period. In configuration you can set up "groups of metrics" such that when users are asking for a metric, they can view performance across all metrics by default. For example: How do  sales for Brand X compare to other competitors? The answer can include sales volume and price out of the box.
