Put our Benchmark comparisons to work for you.

More than 70 years ago, NCM Associates was founded to develop statistical and financial analyses to help improve dealership performance for a small group of Ford dealers. Today, we continue to serve thousands of business owners across North America with our innovative Benchmark tools. Our intention is to always challenge our clients to perform at a higher level.

Our competition may provide similar reports; however, not all reports are created equal. NCM's industry-recognized benchmarks analyze a comprehensive range of financial and operational data, allowing clients to compare their performance to other organizations and industry averages. NCM regularly creates new benchmark averages so our clients have the most accurate and up-to-date market trends. Most importantly, our clients entrust us with their data because we do not use an outside vendor to create our reports. NCM has a dedicated in-house team to manage and process all client data.

And true to our heritage of innovation, we've leveraged our Benchmark comparison data to collaborate with our partners to create dealer software that's disrupting the automotive marketplace: axcessa, HealthCheck, and LiveAudit.

I estimate that we are bringing back $10,000 to the bottom line each month and are getting back more than five times our monthly investment.
