Distributor Performance Dashboards (DPD) tool is the next generation of distributor performance analysis. This tool will help distributor members protect your profitability and maximize the resources available for customer service.

Operational improvement is a constant objective at all quality distributors where pre-tax margins rarely reach 3%. In this world where little things mean a lot, DPD helps distributors identify where their performance differs from the mean, prioritize areas for improvement, and devise effective plans to achieve  goals.

After completing a survey (about an hour), participating members have access to a confidential report comparing their operating performance to the median results and high performing members across an extensive array of performance ratios.
