Understanding the rank tool
The Rank Tool enables the comparative analysis of multiple companies across multiple KPIs - in one view. This tool helps to rank the performance of each company, client, or franchisee relative to its peers.
This tool creates a leaderboard for each KPI - a '1st' result indicates that for this metric, the company is the best performer in the benchmark group.
Example: In the case of Accounts Receivable Days, a company with a lower AR Days result would be more highly ranked because it would mean they were being paid by customers more quickly, resulting in a better cash flow performance.
Sorting the rank tool
Above the rank tool graph, you will see two bolded options that are variable selectors. Clicking on an option reveals a drop down menu to select options for that variable.
Interacting with the tool
To scroll through the metrics upon which the companies are ranked, you can either drag the slider bar at the bottom of the tool, or by clicking within the tool and dragging directly to the right or left.
