PIA Ratio Studies and CostRatesAdvisor Financial Ratios Dashboard – A Perfect Match


Sarasota, Florida. February 26, 2014 – Profectus, Inc., a national consulting company that helps printing and packaging organizations improve their business, announced today the debut of a Financial Analysis and Ratios Dashboard in the popular budgeted hourly cost rates software.


The financial dashboard features numerous ratios reports and graphs so companies can benchmark their figures to other companies using the Printing Industries of America’s Ratios Financial Ratio Studies*.PIA Ratios


For over 90 years the PIA Ratios Studies has been the printing industry’s most valuable financial benchmarking tool for strategic management, investment, productivity, and profitability. The PIA Ratio Studies are a compilation of expenses, assets, salaries, and other financial information from hundreds of printing and related graphic arts firms.


Owners, managers, and analysts can use their CostRatesAdvisor financial information as a benchmark against the PIA Ratios’ industry norms and profit leaders. Some of the ratios included in the Financial Analysis and Ratios Dashboard include:

  • Sales & Administrative costs ratios
  • Direct Manufacturing costs ratios
  • Payroll costs ratios
  • Cost per employee ratios
  • Cost center and department costs ratios

According to Profectus President Craig Press, “ has come to be more than a budgeted hourly cost rates program. It’s an excellent tool for determining the break-even cost of your production equipment and services, tracking cost trends, and now benchmarking your financials to other companies.”
