In addition to the look-under-the-hood financial details we have provided for 94 years, the new Dynamic Ratios study provides an online, interactive version of our Ratios study.

The central features of the new Dynamic Ratios include:

  • New 24/7 Secure Interactive Dashboard allows printers instant access to industry financial and operating averages as well as profit leader benchmarks.
  • New Instant Graphics provides easy-to-understand information. The quartile system allows for you to view where your company is compared to your peer group or to the industry financial and operating averages.
  • New Shorter Survey Option—a 70 percent reduction in required submitted information. Now printers need only provide 31 line items to participate. To gain the most from the survey, peer groups are recommended to fill out the long version of the survey.
  • New Focus on Key Performance Metrics to simplify management decisions.
  • New Peer Group Report – allows printers the option to custom design which printers they would like to sync with.
  • New Trend Analysis between Years – for those printers that have participated in the past
