All of this is possible today—but only if you get organized.

As an innovative B2B fashion wholesale platform, JOOR has always pushed the boundaries of what’s possible.
Today, we offer 13 pre-built reports, each designed to give you everything you need to keep on the front foot.
On top of that, our Reporting Suite gives you the ability to make fully customizable reports that include the data points important to you and your brand.
So, that means more meaningful insights faster and more convenient than ever before. And better business decisions as a result.
Here are five of the most important pre-built JOOR reports B2B wholesale directors use every day to help their businesses grow.
By viewing live inventory levels against your JOOR orders, you can actively keep track of the styles and sizes that have been selling. Then you can make sure everything is restocked at the right time—meaning no more lost orders.
This overview details the performance of individual styles, including metrics for units sold, extended wholesale and retail price, and a count of unique retailers.
It means you can instantly analyze the popularity of each style and color, see which categories account for the biggest percentage of your sales, and use the shipping city/country filter to check where your styles are most popular.
Prepare for retailer appointments fueled with insights and knowledge on their order behavior.
This report provides key order details for every retailer you sell to, including sales volume, location, price type, extended costs, and more. It’s also an incredibly useful way to analyze your top retailers or regions and their total sales volume.
See, review and act on your buyer’s comments and specific requests with this detailed report.
You’re also presented with all style-related information (per order and per retailer), style and color comments, as well as order details (season codes, order types, and more).
If you want to dive deeper, order statuses, units sold (including notes), pricing, color codes, and buyer/retailer details are also stored.
How many units have been ordered for each style and color? With this report, that info is only a click away. Each style is shown by color on a size level, so you can quickly view your bookings per size.
Category, material, fabrication, silhouette, linesheet, and retailer are also included. When brands want to know how many cuts to make for a style, or to gauge current inventory levels, this is the first place they head.
