How Would Having This Data Impact Your Business?

The Market Outlook Survey for the Office Products Industry will provide insights not found anywhere else. By participating, you’ll come to understand your business performance in new and different ways as your business changes and grows. For example:

See Current and Expected Trends For:
  • Sales Orders (Bookings) — Sales Orders placed, including those to be invoiced in another period
  • Invoiced Sales (Billings)
  • Backorders (Backlogs)
  • Pipeline Activity — Are opportunities for business increasing? Staying the same? Or decreasing from the prior quarter?
Gain Insights: 
  • Is your business tracking with the industry?
  • Is your business tracking with other dealers in your region?
Measure General Business Activity:
  • Are you seeing an uptick in a particular sector?
  • Are you seeing some product categories doing better than others?
How to Participate in the Survey

Each quarter, Solomon Coyle will send an email invitation which will include a survey link unique to your organization. Please “whitelist” in your contacts so you won’t miss the email!

How Long Will it Take? 

Typically, the survey requires only a few minutes to complete. For the first submission, you may find it will take a little longer, as we are asking that you provide data on the past four quarters so we can establish a baseline.

Accessing the Report

Participants in the survey receive the full version of the report which includes National, Regional and Sub-regional data, where available.
You will receive an email with access information to the report once it is released, typically within a week of the survey close date.
