CAPS benchmarking surveys are a small time commitment with a big return.
Most surveys are short with less than 10 tick boxes (with the exception of our annual Metrics of Supply Management survey). You’ll receive 1-2 per month – answer the surveys you can. If the survey isn’t in your area of expertise, feel free to forward it to an SME in your company, and if they complete it, you’ll both get a copy of the report.
When you participate, you’ll get free reports as our thanks. Members can request polls, breakouts, comparative reports, and calls with other members, but as a non-member, this is the best way to get access to our unbiased data.
Keep us out of your spam box. You will receive emails from these addresses:
Please add us to your safe-sender list. Don’t know how? Here’s more info.
Avoid duplicate submissions.
For most surveys, we need one response per company. If others in your organization get the same survey, please coordinate with them.
CAPS surveys are never sponsored or underwritten.
Our surveys are unbiased and sales-free. We prohibit underwriting, and are dedicated to the integrity of our reports.
We protect your data.
We will never share, distribute, or sell your data or personal information. All survey data is reported in aggregate and ownership is protected.

Most survey and report topics explore supply management programs and practices, as suggested or requested by professionals we interact with.
