Your store’s Financial Fitness is one of your top priorities, but many Store Directors have more questions than answers. Are your margins what they should be? Is your inventory too high? And how does your campus store stack up against other similar stores in terms of sales per FTE?
indiCo’s Financial Survey helps put the key financial indicators you need at your fingertips. Comparing your store metrics to same-size store averages can help you assess your strengths and areas needing improvement.

As a Financial Survey participant, you’ll receive the aggregated Data Tables from other participants,which will allow you to benchmark your results against similar stores and identify areas of excellence, as well as areas needing improvement. Just for completing the survey, indiCo will provide you with your own results and the data to compare against stores with similar sales, enrollment, and campus type. You’ll know for sure what aspect of your store’s performance could benefit from some fine-tuning.
With knowledge comes confidence to take action and make adjustments to improve your store’s performance. Our complimentary Financial Fitness resources (coming soon!) are designed to help you address issues that were red-flagged in your benchmark comparisons. These how-to guides and templates will outline probably causes to numbers that are high or low, whether they should be addressed, and what you can do about it.
