Measuring & Analysing Financial KPIs From Business Perspect

Financial KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are measurable values that indicate how well a business is performing pertaining to generating revenue, profits and values. Monitoring KPIs shows whether a business is on its way achieving its short-term and long-term business goals.

All KPIs carry a common goal: To keep businesses well-tuned and ready for financial success.
