The COGS Analysis by Location Report runs the amounts of specified COGS types for designated Locations over a selected period of time. This report compliments the COGS Allotment Report because it provides further analysis into the COGS Types and the cost percentage of each item against its type budget amount. Even further, Vendors associated with each Location will have Vendors with a listing of hyperlinked invoices to analyze any disparities that arise.
To navigate to the COGS Analysis by Location Report, click 'My Reports' under 'Reports' in the left pane and then select 'Purch. & Inv.' in the top header of the reporting window. Once opened, a listing of reports will be shown.
