DEAL: Distributor Efficiency Analytics & Learning

The Problem

Distributors are facing stiff financial pressure and are wasting 10-30 percent on facility and fleet operating costs.

The Solution

ISSA's Distributor Efficiency Analytics & Learning (DEAL) program, developed in partnership with Sustainability Dashboard Tools, LLC, helps distributors reduce operating costs and be more profitable. 

DEAL can help your business reduce facility and fleet operating costs—up to 30 percent—with its comprehensive, three-part approach:


DEAL's education sessions will help you improve operational efficiency by adopting best practices from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR and SmartWay transportation programs. Learning sessions start with low- to no-cost improvements to tackle the "low-hanging fruit" before progressing to advanced enhancements.


Analytics and benchmarking in DEAL's data portal can help you track your performance and identify opportunities for improvements across multiple facilities by comparing your data to benchmarking data of other cleaning-product distributors. To compare your performance on a national scale, your energy and fleet performance will also be entered in EPA's ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager and SmartWay Trucking Tool—and your benchmark scores are all migrated into the ISSA DEAL data portal so you only have to use one system. This allows you to leverage industry-specific data, as well as national performance data, to see how you compare.


By participating in DEAL, you can distinguish your company as a leader in sustainable practices and improve your environmental marketing. Awards include industry recognition, plaques, and more.

Why participate?

It's simple—DEAL can help you reduce your facility and fleet operating costs and save money. Additionally, by participating in DEAL, you will:

  • Meet your customers' growing requirements for supply-chain information
  • Compare your performance to other cleaning-industry distributors and other distributors nationally
  • Receive cost-effective consulting on efficient operations.

Several ISSA-member companies already are on board. View the list of DEAL pilot participants.
