For more than two decades, most of the leading trade associations have been sponsoring PAR (profit performance) benchmarking reports from the Profit Planning Group.

The PAR reports give their members visibility into the profit levels achieved in their sectors, and help members assess their position and develop plans to improve returns.

Recently, leading manufacturers have discovered the benefits of sponsoring PAR reports for their own channel partners. By providing profit performance information surrounding their own product lines, they not only give their partners tools to work on profit performance, they also get valuable insights into how their channel operates and get competitive advantage in planning initiatives that will be well-received and very successful.
