Reports / Statistics / Analyses

  • KOST uses Crystal Reports® to create reports.
  • All reports, statistics and analyses can be grouped and filtered. Settings for reports can be saved.
  • All reports, statistics and analyses can be exported from Crystal Reports®  to MS Word®  and MS Excel®.
  • Reports on master data as well as transactions recorded in KOST can be generated and printed out.
    Examples: stock levels and stock takes, stock receipts
  • The statistics analyze transactions and can also be used to compare values e.g. periods. Statistics can also be displayed graphically.
    Examples: sales statistics, item and supplier statistics, pricing statistics etc.
  • Closed periods can be analyzed and compared with other periods.
    Examples: food cost analysis, pricing analysis, Daily Food Cost Analysis (analysis of food costs in relation to guests per head or deviations between desired and actual food costs)
  • All values that are required by the financial department can be displayed in report form and checked.
    Examples: purchases per account, including provisions, inventory values, stock transfers etc.

Floating Period

  • Business periods are finalized using the floating period method.
  • Transactions can be entered for both periods during the phase between the old and new business period.
  • Advantage: invoices and stock receipts can be entered into the new period, even if the old period has  to be closed, thus avoiding unnecessary delays.
