T12M Planning & Tracking

The Big Picture


T12M Tracking is a big picture overview of your business that will show you the trends, cycles and histories of your business.

This all-purpose tool is recommended for both planning and tracking and has been designed to provide you with the 4 key numbers that now make up the revised Instant Imprints Thumbprint:

  • Average Monthly Sales
  • Average Customer Transaction (ACT)
  • Total Gross Margin (TGM)
  • Average Monthly Breakeven

All of these numbers should be based on the trailing twelve months. As that will provide you with the ability to spot trends, create action plans and measure success on both the sales and profit sides of your business.

You will first use this tool, along with the information that you gather during validation, to create projections for the first 3 years of your business. The unique nature of this tool allows you to start with known numbers…system averages for product mix, cost of goods, sales percentages by month and fixed expenses. With that baseline in place, you will then be able to adjust you projections to reflect your strengths and business priorities.

Once you begin operations, you will enter actual data into the T12M Tracking portion of this tool, at the end of your first month of operation. Then, update it each month after that, building a forever history of your business, that will greatly inform the management decision that you will make going forward.

This one simple tool will draw your “Center Thumbprint” allowing you to compare the performance of your Center to other businesses within and outside of our system. Giving you a tremendous ability to identify opportunities, create action plans and celebrate successes.
