The State Sales Heat Map is one of the most simple, powerful and useful ways to visualize your sales data. The advantage of this map is that it allows you to geographically visualize your sales data, and you can quickly understand what’s going on without running several different reports first. If you want to see how a product sold at Store A compared with how the product sells at Store B, you can click on the settings menu, change the retailer and see immediately how the sales of the item compared during the same time period. You can also load several versions of the map, each tailored to a different retailer, to create one dashboard that encapsulates visual data for all retailers for quick and easy comparisons.

 We've designed the Sales Heat Map so that, while it's insightful on its own, its power is unleashed when combined with other Insight Panels. It pairs naturally with the Category Overview, which is a table-style insight panel and the Weekly Retail Sales Trend, which is a graph-style insight panel Used in combination with other panels, it gives you the ability to better see what’s going on with your products, and you can monitor trends quickly without having to recreate the wheel every Monday.
