Profitability is the ability of a business to earn a profit. A profit is what is left of the revenue a business generates after it pays all expenses directly related to the generation of the revenue, such as producing a product, and other expenses related to the conduct of the business activities.
By identifying the profitability of each of your Line of Businesses (LoB), business owners can make better strategic decisions.  This can result in identifying winning and losing areas, an in turn help decide what to do about it. (ie. close that LoB, put more resources into it to make it better, etc.) 

Is your business profitable?

You should never have to make a business decision based on a guess because you didn’t have the right reports with the right data. Not to mention, a standard review of your gross margin simply doesn’t provide you with enough information to effectively measure and run your IT company. You know you need to enhance your business operations, but after seeing that review you simply can’t be sure which line of business needs to be improved. What happens next is that you’re forced to guess, estimate, and waste time on complicated calculations. In the end, you still don’t have enough information to avoid the risk.
