Business Intelligence, Analytics & Comparative Performance

Learn how to navigate the latest DPD dashboards in this webinar presented by NAHAD’s DPD Technical Advisor, Don Smith. Find out how to drill down for additional analysis, while comparing your company to the industry’s average and high performing companies, including a review of balance sheets and operation and sales expenses.

NAHAD’s Distributor Performance Dashboards (DPD) is an innovative model for collecting and analyzing Distributor data, providing participating member companies with leading edge insights, intelligence and capabilities. 

As a powerful tool for business decision-making, DPD allows participating members to compare their data, year-over-year, while measuring their performance against industry peers, in confidence and with total security - all at no cost! By utilizing the new Distributor Performance Dashboards, participating Distributors will:

  • Have the tools needed to perform your annual business ‘Fiscal Check-Up’
  • Develop a history of comparable, annual growth data
  • Identify the ‘low-hanging fruit’ to achieve the easiest, quickest financial benefits
  • Achieve measurable performance and productivity improvements
  • Obtain the key business metrics and data necessary for successful succession planning

The DPD program was developed by an alliance of leading distribution associations, including NAHAD, in partnership with Phocas Software, a top-rated global business intelligence firm. And, did we mention “confidential?” No individual company data will ever be disclosed, ever: Safe, Secure, Simple.

By completing and submitting the annual DPD survey, using your most recently-completed fiscal year’s data, you will have access to an array of reports and 'Dashboard' graphics, providing unique insights and 'what-if' scenarios for sound business planning. Questions?
