Wag Slid Show

  1. 1. Wag Factory<br />By Bobby Clarke<br />
  2. 2. Background<br />Open since June of 2009 “The Wag Factory” is a rapidly growing doggie daycare center located on Folly Road <br />Owner Ryan Reed says that “business is booming”, as they have far surpassed their monthly goals ever since they opened <br />There is already talk of opening a second branch in West Ashley <br />The Wag Factory’s primary Business Processes are Overnight Boarding, Daycare, Grooming, and Sale of Retail Dog Products <br />
  3. 3. Pet Exec<br />The Information System used by Wag Factory is called Pet Exec <br />This system was chosen because of its easy-to-use interface and support of all The Wag Factory’s primary Business Processes <br />It is an Application Service Provider. The user is given a ID and password and logs on through petexec.net <br />Pet Exec uses a series of easy-to-use drop down menus to facilitate Wag Factory’s Business Processes <br />The Records and Inventory are maintained in house, but any problem with the actual system itself, Wag Factory would need to contact Pet Exec’s IT department by email or phone<br />

  5. 5. Data Analysis<br />The data consists of all products and services Wag Factory offers <br />Along with this, it gives the service type, cost to the customer, number sold, and total collected for each service <br />The biggest part of Wag Factory’s business comes from Boarding, Daycare, Grooming, and Daycare Packages that are sold. Additional Charges, Food, and products account for only about 3% of cash inflows<br />
  6. 6. Data Analysis<br />The first thing I noticed when looking at the information is that the service’s cost multiplied by quantity does not always equal the “Total Collected” for each product. <br />Owner, Ryan Reed says this happens for two reasons. 1st is due to discounts he gives frequent customers <br />2nd is because sometimes costs must be added to grooming in cases where grooming becomes more tedious or time consuming <br />
  7. 7. Data Analysis<br />The first thing I did during my analysis was to calculate the amount of the discounts or the price differences attributed to subjective grooming costs. <br />The negative numbers represent a discount taken while the positive numbers mean extra costs had to be added on to grooming.<br />

  10. 10. Data Analysis<br />At the bottom I calculated the “Total Collected” for Wag Factory since June as well as the cash inflows that would have been collected, had no discounts or fluctuating prices taken place. <br />
  11. 11. Since there is no set discount amount for customers and there is no way of knowing which customers received discounts, I calculated the average discount per service and the average percent discounted from the cost of each service. <br />I did similarly with grooming, only with the average extra cost per grooming and the average percent added on to the cost of grooming. <br />
  12. 12. Then, assuming product, additional costs, and food grow at the same rate as the rest of the services, I conducted a goal seek analysis. My goal was to see how many boarding, daycare, and packages must be sold in six months in order to reach a target total collected of $115,000.<br />
  13. 13. I then performed a goal seek to determine how many more grooming services would need to be sold in order to reach a total collected point of $115,000 in six months.<br />
  14. 14. Conclusion<br />I believe the analysis I have done will assist Wag Factory management in predicting their future total collected based on their current trends. <br />All that was needed for this analysis was an estimate of the quantity of services sold <br />
