Ratios Studies

PIA has announced the release of its new Performance Ratios program. Printers will now have access to more than 50 key performance metrics, allowing you to compare operations, business practices, and financials to profit leaders providing insight that can enhance company efficiency and profitability. The key feature of the new program is an easy-to-use online dashboard that generates dynamic reports that include graphics, analysis, and text.

For nearly 100 years, Printing Industries of America’s Ratios program has been a staple of the organization and a valuable resource for printers. With this announcement, the program adapts to our dynamic industry in a way that will make it easier for companies to engage while still retaining all of the benefits of the old program.

New Dashboard
The new Performance Ratios program aims to be more modern and efficient in just about every facet. The first major change is the incorporation of a user-friendly, web-based dashboard. This dashboard not only provides a place for users to update their own metrics but gives users the capability to benchmark themselves with other firms in the industry. The easy-to-use interface will allow companies to compare their own metrics with profit leaders and with those that may be similar in size, processes, location, segmentation, and more. The dashboard will be able to instantly provide charts that are easy to read and understand.

The new program eliminated some of the metrics that were not used by many, creating a simpler and easier to use program. For example, the survey that participants will be required to complete will have fewer questions and will be streamlined to have more of a management focus.
