That is to much right, 

And to add on further these reports have other combination to have more detailed reporting and analysis. So RetailGraph has ample of reports for your needs and requirements.

But still coming back to the point of Need and Want, software users must understand and clearly differentiate between their needs and wants to finalize the best solution for them. Best in terms of the work as well as commercially.

A need can further be divided into
(1) Stated needs, 
(2) Real needs, 
(3) Unstated needs,
(4) Delight needs, and 
(5) Secret needs.

Responding only to the stated need may short change the customer. For example, if a customer enters a hardware store and asks for a sealant to seal glass window panes, she is stating a solution, not a need. If the salesperson suggests that tape would provide a better solution, the customer may appreciate that the salesperson met her need and not her stated solution.

Hence both for the vendor and the customer it is very crucial to understand the needs to have the best experience through the software.

We at SWIL make sure that we understand the need in totality before sharing the solution.

We believe that solution needs has to be defined such that it covers what is immediately needed and it must have a little room to expand considering the future plans.

Retailgraph Covers reporting and analytic in detailed way, and we also develop customized reporting based on the special requirement of our clients.

However we feel it is more important for businesses to understand what is needed and what suits them, as there are Nth no. of reports and analytic which can be inferred and one can come up with, but is it really needed or required is the question that organisation must consider and ask themselves.

Hope you have liked the blog and the details shared. Please share your comments.
