Planning for the Future
NAFCD partners with the Institute for Trend Research (ITR) to develop quarterly customized economic reports produced exclusively for NAFCD members.
Produced by ITR Senior Economists, the NAFCD Quarterly Economic Trend Report correlates macroeconomic data to specific product categories directly related to the floor covering and building material industry. The report allows you to forecast what effect the economy has on your business and what you can reasonably expect for up to six quarters in the future.
These economic outlook reports provide solid answers to such questions as when to increase overhead, when to add sales staff, when to cut inventory levels and when to increase or decrease sales/marketing allocations. Knowing when to act, and when not to, can result in increased profits and costs savings for your company.
Our supplier, distributor and allied members can all benefit from these reports as they help you in making strategic decisions both now and in the future.
