It’s that time of year again: Time to complete ABACUS, ABA’s free annual financial benchmarking survey! This will be another full ABACUS report. We cannot stress enough how critical this data will be to stores and to ABA’s work supporting stores. Every year, we strive to make the ABACUS questionnaire easier and more user friendly. 
The ABACUS report is filled with detailed information highlighting where your store falls across a range of areas, including profitability, productivity, and financial management. Using the ABACUS report is like adding a financial officer to your staff; it clearly highlights areas that need improvement, areas in which your store is succeeding, and everything in between.
