Benchmarking is the process of comparing one’s business performance metrics to industry bests and/or best practices from other similar industries. Dimensions typically measured are sales/turnover, gross profit, occupancy costs, wages and other associated business expenses.  As well as net profit, owner remuneration and staffing levels.

Benchmarking is the submission of your financial data anonymously and then it is measured against the median, the average, and the top and bottom 25% of firms in your industry who have also submitted their financial data.  It helps to clearly identify where your business differs from the norm.

If you would like Makes Cents to do Benchmarking for your particular business, please contact the office for further information and pricing.  Remember, Benchmarking is completely anonymous so your business details do not get published for general viewing.
