Webinar Overview
The Ratios are the printing industry benchmark for financial performance. They not only provide hundreds of detailed, accurate, and current industry financial metrics but also break down the information for all printers and profit leaders by printing process, firm size, market segment, and geographic region. By comparing your firm with industry profit leaders and finding the expense line items that are “out of bounds,” you can determine what needs fixed and how to fix it.

First-time users typically get a big “eye opener” from the Ratios. They are usually pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to provide the data—either online or by filling out the form. In many cases they learn a lot about how to organize and classify their expenses from the Ratios chart of accounts. Most of all they find many ways to increase their bottom line.

Participants will be given a simple plan with easy-to-follow steps to compare their financials with profit leaders in their peer group.
