About Lightspeed Analytics

Lightspeed Analytics is a robust reporting system that provides the tools you need to steer your business in the right direction. Whether you're leveraging the reports Analytics has already built for you, or you're designing your own report from scratch, you'll gain deeper insights into your business by getting exactly the data you need to make the best decisions. As well, Lightspeed Analytics has a few new innovative features, including favoriting reports, drilling down into reports, and a simplified dashboard that's easy to use.
