The ranking 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 / 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. (There are 69 companies in the demo Benchmarking group below).
You can select up to 10 companies to view in one ranking. They will be tracked by colour, seen to the right of the variable selectors.
Sorting selection can be either by Category or Alphabetically (A-Z).
Alphabetical sorting simply shows all KPIs selected for the group (in Step 3 of the Benchmarking group Settings) in alphabetical order.
Sorting by Category will group the KPIs in the analysis for additional clarity. The category groupings are the same categories seen in the grouping of the KPIs -- Profitability, Activity, Efficiency, etc -- and are displayed across the bottom of the Rank tool. Category sorting is seen above.
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.
