Using the Dynamic Ratios Reports

The Printing Industries of America 2016–2017 Dynamic Ratios reports are ready, and management has much to gain by analyzing ratios in their company. Using the Dynamic Ratios reports could help your business become more efficient, productive, confident, focused, and profitable. In last month’s edition of Printing Industries of America: The Magazine, PIA Economist Tai McNaughton explained how management can use the information provided in the reports to correctly judge the performance of their company.

In her article, McNaughton shows how to read and understand the quartile system, outlines the importance of using comparable data, and reveals the value of analyzing multiple financial indicators (rather than just one ratio). Click here to read her article in full.
