Metrics like ROI, productivity rate or employee cost are essential for business owners. Tracking them, however, can be tricky.
Many managers rely on weekly or even monthly reports, which, insightful as they might be, usually provide little time for corrective actions. Watching your metrics change in real time is what allows you to react immediately to alarming situations.
How can you stay on top of your sales KPIs? A smart way to do it is to utilize the data your team produces daily – timesheets – and use a tool that can run the numbers for you.

It is arranged to provide you with the following sales KPIs calculated separately for each of your projects:

Productivity is the amount of money your project generates. You can calculate it by taking timesheets and your team’s external rate into account. This is how much you can expect your client to pay you for a given period.
External rate * Timesheets: Time
If your team members have different hourly rates you can fill out the internal rate and external rate columns for each team member separately so that you arrive at precise calculations:
Employee Productivity Rate
Employee Productivity Rate is the average amount of revenue per employee. You can compare this number to the actual productivity of your team members to see which employees deviate the most from the average.
(Timesheets: Time * External Rate) / Number of People
This metric shows you how much you have to spend on salaries for each project. It takes into account your team’s timesheets and their hourly rates.
Similarly to Productivity, if your team members have different hourly rates you can fill out the internal rate and external rate columns for each team member separately.
The employee cost formula:
Timesheets: Time * Internal Rate
ROI (Return on Investment) is the bottom line of your business profitability: how much money there is left once you cover your team’s salaries?
In order to calculate your project’s profit you have to take into account the revenue generated by your employees and their salaries:
Productivity – Employee Cost
