Financial Performance Assessment

Printing Industries of America's Center for Print Economics and Management has developed a way for printers to assess their strengths and weaknesses and to obtain an action plan to improve their bottom-line performance. The key features of the new Financial Performance Assessment include:

KPM Analysis

A detailed comparison and analysis of the printer's key performance metrics with profit-leading firms that are similar in size, business models, and printing processes.

Variance Analysis

A comprehensive variance analysis examining the underlying reasons for performance issues.

Action Plan

An action plan with recommendations for specific strategic management practices and operational improvements, such as lowering costs, saving resources, changing prices, and other actions to stop losses and increase sales and profits.

Follow-up Consultations

Three months of follow-up including a detailed report to management, a web-based presentation to the printer's management team, and on-going assistance and consultation as needed to help implement the action plan.


The research and analysis are conducted by Dr. Ron Davis, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist with over 28 years' experience in financial analysis in the printing industry.

Affordable pricing plans are structured based on the size of your company.
