Benchmark Your Business & Measure Your Success
Why do distributors need to benchmark? Benchmarking is a critical process for your business; it helps you compare your performance metrics to your peers and learn best practices from industry leaders. And not only is the benchmarking process important—it’s continual. This is particularly true for cleaning-industry distributors, who continue to face the pressures associated with operating profitably in today's highly competitive marketplace.
How Can ISSA Help?
ISSA has partnered with other distributor trade associations to create the next generation of benchmarking tools: Distributor Performance Dashboards (DPD), powered by CoMetrics. DPD empowers you to:
- Access benchmarking data 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- View operational and financial metrics for typical and high-profit distributors
- Compare your firm to other distributors in the industry by sales volume, product sales mix, and within your buying group, if applicable.
The 2017 DPD participation window is open, and preliminary data is now available to all ISSA-member distributors on the DPD website! Distributors may complete and upload their DPD Profitability & Operating Performance Surveys now through September 30.
ISSA-member distributors received an email with their DPD website login credentials from ISSA's DPD technology provider CoMetrics in May. Please contact us if you need assistance with your login information or help completing the survey.
Plus, be sure to join us Monday, September 11, at ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America 2017 for an interactive session on the DPD program, Dare to Compare: ISSA Distributor Performance Dashboards and You.
