GMROI Report

  • The GMROI gives insights on how the past spending decisions on inventory have turned out so that they can be reviewed and optimized in the future. 
  • By breaking down GMROI into categories, it becomes convenient for any user to pinpoint where the highest GMROI lies and adjust their focus on it.  


The average amount that the inventory returns over its cost can be seen by the investor or manager thanks to the GMROI. A ratio greater than 1 indicates that the company is making a profit on the goods it sells and that there is a healthy balance between its sales, margin, and cost of inventory and the opposite is true for a ratio below 1.
