2017 Dynamic Ratios Survey

The 2017 Dynamic Ratios Survey is open for participation! Members and non-members can participate in this industry financial benchmarking survey by clicking here.

Since 1921, the PIA Ratios have been the industry standard helping printers improve profitability by benchmarking their operations against industry profit leaders. The PIA Ratios is the oldest continuously operating financial benchmarking program in the private sector of the United States. Central features of the Dynamic Ratios include: 

  • Shorter Survey Option—a 70 percent reduction in required submitted information. Now printers need only provide 32 line items to participate.
  • 24/7 Secure Interactive Dashboard granting printers instant access to industry financial and operating averages and profit leader benchmarks
  • Instant Graphics providing easy-to-understand information
  • Focus on Key Performance Metrics to simplify management decisions
  • Legacy Reports and Database still available
  • Peer Group Report options custom designed by users
  • A Web-Based Survey collection process 

“The print industry is always changing and financial norms morph just as fast. To help stay ahead of the constant altering curve, the Dynamic Ratios from Printing Industries of America provides business owners the business intelligence tools they need to stay ahead of the competition,” said Tai McNaughton, Economist, PIA.
