New for Member Distributors – the NFPA Financial Benchmark Survey

Also known as the PROFIT Report, and conducted with the help of the Profit Planning Group, this annual survey helps distributors benchmark financial performance on indicators that relate directly to profitability. Each participating company will receive a confidential Performance Analysis Report that directly compares performance and profitability with groups of peer companies.

Participants also receive a custom Performance Scorecard that ranks their companies on key metrics, and a Profit Interaction Charts and Prescriptive Action Plan that identify areas of focus and suggest steps toward profitability improvement. Al Bates of the Profit Planning Group explains the value of the survey here:

All survey data goes directly to the Profit Planning Group for aggregation, reporting, analysis and assurance of confidentiality.

Watch the mail for the survey, which can be expected to arrive the week of January 22nd.
