NBMDA Financial Benchmarking Report

The 2019 Report has been distributed to participants.  

If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it!

The report allows participants to compare business practices and performance standards of their company and that of other distribution firms in the industry. The results of benchmarking can help NBMDA members run their businesses more efficiently and profitably. 

All distributor survey participants received the 2019 NBMDA Industry Benchmarking Dashboard, a customizable report delivered in Excel and based on actual distributor data that provides industry averages across a variety of metrics and includes text that explains what the results mean.

The Financial Benchmarking Report is only available to distributor survey participants. The 2020 NBMDA Financial Benchmarking Survey will open in April of next year.
