Builders Merchants Federation (BMF)

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is the only organisation in the UK and Ireland that represents and protects the interests of builder’s merchants and suppliers. Total membership at 1 May 2019 stands at 684 merchant and supplier companies who together have combined sales of £31.4 bn and employ over 128,000 people in the building materials industry. BMF’s 355 merchant members operate from over 5,031 branches across the UK and Ireland. The tool has been used to complete the 2019 Remuneration report showing salaries, wages and benefits paid to Builders’ Merchants employees up to April 2019.

“Previously the data collection process was far more strenuous and paper intensive. Implementation of the Compare to Compete portal has allowed us to collect the data for the annual reports more efficiently as members can simply submit their data via the online portal. With the added benefit of validation commands and data restrictions the inputs are more accurate than ever.

We will definitely be using the tool again next year to as the ease with which an overall report or individual member report can be created is second to none.“

Benchmark French Golf Courses

Since 2012 the GEGF, located in Paris, works with the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool for GEGF Benchmark of French Golf Courses. These are commercial golf courses that compare their sales in several areas.

Each month over 25 participants enter their data online, and we get data from 90 golf courses, which are part of three chains, whose data is imported to the system. We check data and deliver the individual reports.

The report focuses on period comparison of the current month and the same month of the previous year (MTD and YTD).

“The Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool offered by Compare 2 Compete provides French commercial golf courses with an efficient tool to follow the evolution of the national golf market. The Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool is most useful for individual courses to benchmark themselves with the market, and for GEGF as a group to present a reliable picture of the importance and evolution of golf business in France.”

Benchmark 'Office performance' NOAB

Since 2009 NOAB uses the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool for their benchmark ‘Office performance’. Before this, the benchmark was performed manually using Excel and paper. By using of the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool the number of participants has increased from 60 up to almost 500. A large part of this group is participating every year.

The benchmark provides insight into the operations of the office, the remuneration and tariffs. The survey provides insight into differences between firms of different size and regional location, the current rates, developments, benefits, costs and revenues.

The benchmark shows the difference between accounting firms and tax consultants. NOAB gets relevant market information.

“One of the most important aspects of collaboration is the unburdening. After our annual reconciliation the total process is carried out by Compare 2 Compete, from the invitations to collecting data, validation of data, to the individual reports. Also, you expericence as customer the enthusiasm of Compare 2 Compete to get started with the project. Equally important is that privacy is guaranteed of participants and the quality of the benchmark itself. We rely on years of expertise of the team of Compare 2 Compete.”

Publisher Weka and advisor Berenschot

Publisher Weka works with the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool for the benchmark ‘Key metrics of Staff management ’ since 2009. Besides an extensive questionnaire, divided into modules, we have realized a single sign on for them with their own back-office systems. We have also updated the look and feel of their website so that their customers hardly noticed the difference.

Weka has been conducting this benchmark in collaboration with Berenschot and received more and more requests from participants and non-participants for individual comparison with reference groups. As a result, they started looking for an efficient and effective system. They chose the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool.

Together we have achieved an online benchmark. The participant subscribes to the Weka tool. In the back-office Weka indicates what rights a participant should have. During logging in, the Compare 2 Compete benchmark tool checks what rights the user has and adapts the functionality in our system accordingly.

“After severe market research, we have been able to build together with Compare 2 Compete a market-driven product in a relatively short period of time, which has now been used by hundreds of customers to their fullest satisfaction. The speed and flexibility I've experienced from Compare 2 Compete contributed greatly to this.”
