ASA's Operating Performance Report (OPR) is a superb tool for ongoing critical number education and performance improvement. The OPR provides a complete, easy-to-use study of comparative performance results for wholesale distributors in the PHCP and industrial PVF industries. Compiled annually by Industry Insights, Inc., this report is based upon a confidential survey of ASA members and represents a thorough and accurate financial analysis of the PHCP and PVF wholesale distribution industry. The OPR includes financial ratios and statistics grouped by product category, sales volume and high-profit firms to help you and your team pinpoint operational strengths and weaknesses. It's a valuable resource for any wholesaler. Since many ASA member firms already participate in the survey, using this tool is a logical and inexpensive strategy in building business competency.
