Each participant will also receive one Revenue Management Summary Report (RMSR) ) for every three to five Revenue Management Reports ordered for an individual office or practice group. The purpose of this report is to reduce the amount of time that participants spend analyzing and compiling survey results obtained from the individual reports.

The 'Report Export' Spreadsheet is a spreadsheet report (in .xls format) that consists of a 'data export' of the comparison group statistics provided within the Revenue Management Reports ordered. The group statistics from each comparison group ordered by the firm will be displayed as a separate worksheet within the spreadsheet. Your firm's data for each office and practice group submitted to the Survey will be included in a separate worksheet.
