C-TRAC Suite: Benchmarking Module

The Form 990 is a public document that is extremely accessible and highly scrutinized by donors and stakeholders. Whether through services like GuideStar USA Inc. or postings from states’ attorneys general, it is easy for an individual to gather information about a tax-exempt organization.

Crowe created its benchmarking module to allow an organization to extract information on data points for all sub-organizations within the enterprise and to create a benchmarking report that would compare metrics of similar organizations within a peer group.
