Benchmark French Golf Courses

Since 2012 the GEGF, located in Paris, works with Combo Benchmark 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, whos 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 Combo Benchmark offered by Compare2Compete provides French commercial golf courses with an efficient tool to follow the evolution of the national golf market. Combo Benchmark 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.”

National Association of Colleges and Employers

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) uses Combo Benchmark since 2015 to process several benchmarks among their members.

NACE Benchmarking consists of several benchmarks among employers and colleges, from ‘career services’ to 'recruiting benchmark surveys’. NACE choose to use Combo Benchmark because of the automatic reporting to participants. For NACE we have built a single sign on which is linked to their backoffice. In their backoffice NACE registers who has access to which benchmark and which functionality. During login this rights are checked by Combo Benchmark and the rights adjusted automatically.

Benchmark 'Office figures' NOAB

Since 2009 NOAB uses Combo Benchmark for their benchmark ‘Office figures’. Before this, the benchmark was performed manually using Excel and paper. By using of Combo Benchmark 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 study provides insight into differences between firms of different size and regional location, the current rates, salaries, 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 Compare2Compete, from the invitations to provide data, validation of data, to the individual reports. Also, you mark as customer the enthusiasm of Compare to 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 to Compete."

Publisher Weka and advisor Berenschot

Publisher Weka works with Combo Benchmark 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 Combo Benchmark.

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, Combo Benchmark 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 to 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 to Compete contributed greatly to this.
