Revenue Variance Analysis is used to measure differences between actual sales and expected sales based on sales volume metrics, sales mix metrics, and contribution margin calculations. Information obtained from Revenue Variance Analysis is important to organizations because it allows management to determine actual sales performance in relation to the perceived performance of the company for specific products. It helps businesses identify which products are performing better in the market. Overall, variance analysis helps management make better strategic and business-level decisions to maximize its profitability.
