Running a Group Labor Summary Report
The Group Labor Summary Report is located under the Labor tab in Avero. As long as you have access to two or more businesses, you will have access to this report.
The default settings on this report are set up to show a summary of yesterday's labor costs for all your businesses.
Using Attributes and Tags
Attributes and Tags are fully customizable and will help you organize all of the businesses within your enterprise, into distinct groups based on similar characteristics.
Example: if a "Region" attribute is selected, then the next step would be to select the specific region you want to analyze. Once selected, the businesses with that pertain to that specific region will group together. Tags will then extract businesses from that grouping.

This is the meat of your report. Each report within Avero has a defined number of metrics that can be included in one report. We have defined all of the metric options on the Metrics page.
Labor metrics include both cost-based metrics and productivity-based metrics. Cost metrics let you know what you are actively spending in labor expenses. Productivity metrics allow you to identify where your labor dollars are being wasted and find opportunities for better scheduling or changes in SOPs.
