Last Year Comparison Reporting

Reporting clarification dates- VMX POS lists the dates used in comparison measures like the "Last Year Comparison" report so you can make the most of your data. As a point-of-sale designed for garden centers, VMX prioritizes the day of the week in daily and weekly reports and the date in monthly and yearly reports. Those details are always listed for you under the weather report in gray text.
