Distribution Management System Dashboard: Key Features of a Top Notch Dashboard

Having a user-friendly and top-quality dashboard in a Distribution Management System is extremely crucial for users. A dashboard presents all the information and data that users and management need to know about the orders, sales, distribution channel processes, and manpower. 


When you navigate from one tab to another on the dashboard, you must be able to view all the data that will help you make informed decisions. And so, Sokrio DMS has a top-notch dashboard that allows users to navigate and view the information and data in real-time and accurately. 


Here, we will discuss the features and benefits of the Sokrio DMS dashboard to help you understand how to navigate and where to go to find information. 


Let’s find out how. 

Entering the Dashboard

Once you enter the Sokrio homepage, the dashboard is to the left of your screen, at the top. Below it, there are other tabs, like the User, Tracking, Orders, Payments, Reports, etc. 


When you click on the Dashboard tab, you will see the following screen:



The first feature to the left is the Overview screen. It gives you a glimpse of the following:


  • Order Amount

  • Scheduled Calls.

  •  Invoice amount

  • Delivery amount

  • Outlets visited

  • Total number of orders

  • Total number of invoice

  • Total number of delivery

  • And other important metrics. 


Besides the Overview, there is the Sales Growth feature.  When you click on the tab ‘Sales Growth’, you get to see the following:


Here, you can see the sales growth and changes in sales volumes for particular dates and months.  This helps you track the sales growth for each day of the week. This is turn can help you measure where the ups and dips in sales occur, helping you make solid plans and decisions.


When you click on Filters, you will see a pop-up screen show-up like the following:



Here, you can select 


  • the Territory, 

  • frequency of days, 

  • to-from days, 

  • the field force, and 

  • the product to view the sales report. 

When you scroll down, you can view the Product Revenues that will help you make well-informed decisions about your products. The information is shown via a histogram where on the vertical axis you have and the revenues are shown on the horizontal axis. 




The filter button shows the Fast-moving and slow-moving products for each territory. 

Miscellaneous Section

Besides the Sales Growth feature, you have the ‘Miscellaneous’ tab where we see a pie chart of Target vs Achievement for a particular period. 

Here, we can see that the revenue achievement, marked in green is more than the initial revenue target, showing good revenues for the period.  This all-important section helps you see and understand where the business is headed in terms of financial gains. 

Analyzing the Orders

One tremendous factor about Sokrio DMS is how it tracks orders in real time and automates information pertaining to order management. When you click on the Outlet Order tab, you see that it shows the number of outlets there are in the divisions and territories of Bangladesh. These outlets are where the orders go. 


When you navigate to the Basic Reporting tab, you can see 


  • the daily average users, 

  • average working hours, 

  • visits to outlets, 

  • newly added outlets, and 

  • outlets not covered. 


This section also lets you see the gist of daily reports. 



The next tab, Outlet Heat, shows the outlets spread throughout the country. It is a vital part of this DMS service because it gives a mapped view of the outlets. You can select the territory, channel type, outlet category, location type, etc. 



You can also zoom in and out of the map area to get a closer look at the area.  To provide you with more options, the DMS gives you 


  • a Default version 

  • Street version

  • Dark, version and 

  • Navigation Night version. 


All of these provide you with different types of views of the map. 


The Main Menu of the DMS

When you are at the homepage of the Dashboard, you will notice the Main Menu to the left of your screen with lots of tabs. The tabs are the core features of the DMS. Thus, when you click on them, you are viewing the factors that set Sokrio apart. Let’s look at what these tabs offer you:


This tab basically lists the names and roles of the users/personnel who use the DMS. Besides that, the other subfeatures show you the allowance, transport, targets, and app information related to the users. 



Under this feature, you get to see the list of territories where the retailer does business, along with the type of territory. The territories are the districts and divisions in Bangladesh where the business of the brand takes place. It also shows the areas or districts where no businesses or outlets are present at the moment. 

The type of territory indicates whether it’s a high business area or a low-business area. This is indicative of how much sales are generated from these areas. 

Customer Master

Under this feature, you will find:

  • The channels of business

  • To which stores you are doing business with and their details

  • The badges the stores get for discounts

  • And the category and location type of the store. 

Product Master

This tab gives you everything you need to know about the products like category, brand, batch, variant, and unit of the product. Also, it shows you what promotions were undertaken for a particular product. 


Now this feature is an extremely important one. It shows the visit plans of the sales reps or field forces, the details of the field forces, and a Google map of where they are situated. 

You can view and track where the field forces are present and whether they are visiting the outlets correctly or not. It also shows the assigned outlets, so you would know which sales rep is assigned to which outlet. 



                                                         Field Force

                                                                 Map View

                                                           Visit Plans

This feature helps you track where the field forces are and whether they are meeting the assigned goals or not. 



The Attendance feature lists which employee was present and which employee was absent on any given day. You can also view who is enjoying leave. This HR information is essential to keep the operations flowing accordingly.  Also, it helps to eliminate any confusion that you could have in assigning tasks, duties, or outlets to particular sales reps. 


Primary and Secondary Order:

These aspects of the DMS dashboard show vital information for the business:


  • What orders were placed on a daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly/yearly basis?

  • What were the sales returns for the particular orders?

  • Which orders are ready to be dispatched, are on their way to delivery or delivered?



Another important feature of the DMS, the Stock, shows the product stocks available at particular outlets of the retailers or distributors they are doing business with.  Here, you can


  • Add a new stock of products available, 

  • update the existing stock of products, or 

  • even add different product stocks in bulk. 

This will help you keep a streamlined inventory management and there won’t be a stockout before an order is placed. You will have enough data to not face a shortage of stock. 

This feature also indicates 


  • which products are free to release; 

  • What is the market retail price (MRP) of the product; 

  • the delivered amounts; 

  • the delivery pending amounts of a stock of product; 

  • and how much stock of a product is available. 


Report, Custom Report, and Manager Report

These three sections present the different types of reports to you about all the aspects of the DMS. From HR, Performance, and Stock, to the Payment History, Bounce Rate, Delivery Summary, etc., all the reports are under the Report section. 


Also, Custom Report entitles you to generate custom order and delivery reports and Manager Report lets you see Check-Ins of the supervisors.
