Benchmarks and Strategies

Retail success requires effective goals and realistic, achievable benchmarks.

Our consultants can help you establish benchmarks and achieve your margin goal, build sales, improve operational efficiency and inventory turns. Benchmarks can help department managers stay focused on achieving their goals. Clear, realistic and effective benchmarks provide a standard for evaluating a departmental managers’ performance. We can help:

  • Establish appropriate departmental benchmarks
  • Develop strategies to achieve target margins
  • Manage labor as a percent of sales (sales per labor hour – SPLH)
  • Improve inventory turns
  • Build strategies and tools for achieving your goals
  • Train your team on industry standards
