We empower supply chain professionals with profound discovery, powerful connection, and clear foresight. Measure up. Move forward.


See how you stack up against your peers


Our comprehensive benchmarking gives companies exceptional insight into how they compare to other organizations using supply management KPIs.

And at CAPS Research, we let the data speak for itself.  We work side by side with you to understand what the metrics mean, to provide analysis and make connections to other research we’re doing with other global supply organizations.  We won’t ever use the data to point to some new “solution” you should buy.

As a trusted non-profit, we are committed to integrity and confidentiality every step of the process, from survey design and data collection to reporting and analysis.

Our team is committed to helping provide you with the actionable benchmarks you need, whether it’s to improve your processes or justify new investments.

Even supply management professionals from non-member companies can participate in benchmarking surveys and get metrics in return. You may not get the customized reporting and surveys upon request, but you’ll get great data points to support you in your journey.

Targeted metrics for on-target answers


One of our most demanded reports gives every company in a unique industry sector an opportunity to compare their supply management business practices to those of others within the same industry sector.


By regularly looking at specific metrics being collected from different industry sectors, we report on the core benchmarking information that provides a snapshot of supply management key performance indicators.

Put our credibility and relationships to work for you.  Gain cross-industry insights you need using our established history and ability to work with a variety of organizations from different industry groups.


There are many times when standard benchmarking reports need the added insight of a survey that asks for information on a specific topic from targeted groups of participants.

The benchmarking team at CAPS Research is happy to work with different groups, associations, and organizations to develop tailored surveys that will provide the right metrics for in-depth analyses. Examples include:

  • supplier or internal satisfaction
  • supplier diversity
  • suppliers’ “green” practices
  • investment recovery performance
