(CHICAGO) March 24NAMA invites industry operators to participate in the 2015 Operating Ratio Survey which is now open and accepting submissions through April 15, 2015. This survey will provide the foundation for NAMA’s annual publication, Key Indicators for Success: 2015 Operating Ratio Report, which will be available later this year.

“The Operating Ratio Report provides financial benchmarking and analysis that cannot be found anywhere else,” said Dan Mathews, NAMA Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.  “In fact, the report provides metrics designed to help businesses plan for long-term sales growth and includes data such as sales per employee, costs of goods and services and operating expenses. According to operators, consultants and research companies, the report is very valuable, serving as a discussion tool with banks and other investment partners,” Mathews concluded.

All industry operators are invited to participate in this survey.

The survey will require no more than two hours to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the organization. Participants will receive, free of charge, the following tools valued at more than $300:
