Gross sales, payroll, productivity... are you interested in these figures ? We understand, so do we !

Our analysis tool allows you to visualize with one quick glance key ratios and schedule your teams accordingly !

Good to know : This is an estimate. We don’t take into account meal allowances (TR paid in part), health insurance, premium night hours, Sunday and holiday time increases in the calculation.


How to access the Analysis part of my schedule ?

Head to your Schedule > select a team and a week :

  • Click on the 📈 icon in the top right corner : the analysis tool will pop on top your weekly planning.

Good to know : If you select a location (without selecting a specific team), the data will be for all teams attached to this location.


What are the differences between daily and weekly analysis ?

You are probably wondering "Why doesn't my weekly analysis correspond to the sum of my daily analysis ?" Well it's very simple !

The weekly analysis is a rather financial view. It's an "accounting" calculation that estimates the actual cost per week based on employment contracts.

It only takes into account the contracts of employees attached to the location, whether they worked in that location or not, as that is what you will actually pay. Also, since overtime and additional hours are recorded on a weekly basis and not on a daily basis, markups are only taken into account in the weekly analysis.

Good to know : The weekly analysis is an estimate because the employer's charge rate is an average rate and not individualized (which you can configure in Settings > Labor Cost), the meal-related allowances, health insurance, nighttime, Sunday and holiday markups are not taken into account in our calculations.

The daily analysis is a rather operational view. It’s closer to the reality of production. It’s this analysis that you should use on a daily basis to develop and adjust your schedules.

It takes into account the hours and wages of people who actually worked on the team, regardless of the facility attached to their employment contract.

Good to know : The daily analysis doesn’t count paid holidays, training hours, overtime, shifts scheduled at another location.


What about the difference between budget analysis and actual analysis?

To properly develop your schedules, you can use the budget part of the analysis tool. It allows you to fill in your sales forecast on a day-to-day basis and thus plan your teams in the best possible way by adjusting your productivity and payroll.

Once the day is over, you can indicate the sales achieved in the Actual part. This allows you to compare and adjust your next budget forecast.


How to read the data in the analysis table ?

  • Scheduled / Actual Hours: Here you will find all the scheduled or worked hours of your employee(s).

  • Productivity: The productivity ratio is what your facility earns per hour and helps drive your business. It’s calculated by dividing the sales by the number of hours worked. It doesn’t depend on individual salaries, it can be shared with all teams without the risk of revealing individual salaries. On Combo, it updates in real time (weekly or daily).

    There is no standard productivity ratio, it's up to you to find yours based on a day you are particularly happy with. By default, we specify €50/hr, but you can customize this in Settings > Productivity.

  • Total Payroll: The staff cost is the cost of your employees, both weekly and daily. To understand in detail how payroll is calculated in the analytics tool, go to this article 👈

  • Payroll ratio: The payroll ratio is calculated by dividing your total payroll by your sales (which is multiplied by 100 to get a percentage). This is what impacts the bottom line at the end of the month or year.
