EFCG360: A Real-Time Interactive Benchmarking Tool
Watch a demo video of the EFCG platform!
EFCG360 is an online interactive dashboard that shows comprehensive trends on A/E/C industry performance. The charts are populated with data from hundreds of A/E/C firms, yet each firm’s data is kept completely confidential as only aggregate numbers (i.e. medians and averages) are displayed. The data includes growth, profit, turnover, utilization, revenue multiplier, and staff diversity. Additionally, the dashboard allows users to filter the data by a peer group to narrow your analysis. You may choose from a certain revenue size bucket (ex: $50-$100 million) and/or a certain geographic focus (ex: US-focus) to display information more relevant to your firm. EFCG360 enables you to see a snapshot of how the industry, or a selected peer group, is performing across a variety of metrics. Your teams can use the data from the dashboard to assess how your firm stacks up in comparison and inform future decision-making. Since the charts are continuously updated as new data becomes available, you can ensure that your company benefits from real-time information. For more information, or if you have any questions, email Vishal Menon at email@example.com.
EFCG Industry Surveys & Reports
Every year, EFCG conducts multiple in-depth surveys to assess the latest trends from across the industry. Each response is kept completely confidential and no firm-identifiable data is shared. All survey participants, however, do receive a copy of the aggregated results once available. For any questions, email Dimitri Milionis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EFCG Weekly Briefings
The EFCG Weekly Briefing summarizes the week's key news in the A/E/C industry, including M&A updates, and micro- and macro-trends, aggregated from industry-focused and global news sources.
