What is a Win Loss Sales Analysis Report?
Win Loss reports are considered essential sales performance analysis tools and are often used by sales executives and sales team members to track the number and percent of Opportunities they land. Some of the key functionality in this type of report is that it pulls data from the company’s CRM system and uses advanced filters and groupings to provide an easy to read sales performance report. Each sales person is listed in the rows with a grand total at the bottom. If you expand a row (not visible in the screenshot below) each opportunity for the given time period will show on a separate row. The columns display statistics for Wins, Losses and Open opportunities, as well as the total number of opportunities per person. The two charts at the bottom of the report show Wins and Losses in percent and as actual metrics. You find an example of this type of report below.
