Calculating GMAU in Acumatica is a straightforward process that can help you gain valuable insights into your business operations. In this article, we will explain what GMAU is, when it is valuable to calculate GMAU, and how to calculate it in Acumatica.

What Is GMAU?

GMAU stands for Gross Margin Return on Investment. It is a financial metric that measures the profitability of your business by comparing the gross margin generated by your products or services to the amount of money invested in them. In other words, GMAU tells you how much profit you are making for every dollar you invest in your business.

GMAU is calculated by dividing the gross margin of a product or service by its cost of goods sold (COGS) and multiplying the result by 100. The formula for GMAU is as follows:

GMAU = (Gross Margin / COGS) x 100

For example, if a product has a gross margin of $50 and a COGS of $100, its GMAU would be:

GMAU = ($50 / $100) x 100 = 50%

When Is It Valuable To Calculate GMAU?

Calculating GMAU can be valuable in a variety of situations. For example, it can help you:

  • Determine which products or services are the most profitable
  • Identify areas where you can improve your profitability
  • Compare the profitability of different products or services
  • Evaluate the return on investment of your marketing and sales efforts

By calculating GMAU, you can make data-driven decisions that can help you increase your profitability and grow your business.

How To Calculate GMAU In Acumatica

To calculate GMAU in Acumatica, you will need to gather the following information:
