Your Missed Purchase Savings is a calculation that shows the savings lost when you do not purchase an item for the cheapest price available from your connected vendors. Please note that this report is only available to select corporate clinics at this time and will only provide data on purchases made on Vetcove for your clinic!

This report provides the following information:

Your percentage of Missed Savings displays how much of your total spend had an opportunity for savings that were missed out on. The total Purchase Error will show you the total dollar amount for your net loss across every item with missed savings.
