The report analyses the world markets with a basic point of reference, namely a base country. The Client can select the base reference country when ordering the database. These reports are formatted to give both a narrative description of the various matters covered as well as provide readers with the ability to directly use the Chapters (via Microsoft Word or compatible word processors) to produce their own reports and documentation. Experienced users will be able to use the spreadsheet and databases to generate highly detailed narrative reports, charts and graphics - as well as sophisticated business and commercial forecasts and models. The databases are provided in both Excel spreadsheets and an Access database. Explanatory notes are provided as Word documents or in PDF formats. As an entry level product the narrative is necessarily illustrative in its terminology and seeks to provide a basic degree of business logic and theory which indicates the rational applied in the forecasting and modelling methodology. The databases are specifically designed to provide users with a uniform and consistent numeric measure of both (normally) quantifiable values as well as conceptual factors which are (usually) only capable of qualification. Experienced users will know how to apply forecasting and modelling software to the numeric data provided to generate highly detailed and discrete business planning models. The databases provided in this report can be used directly with databases on other product, markets and industries in other countries. The databases are specifically designed to be transnational, currency neutral, inflation and purchasing parity adjusted, product parity and product equivalent adjusted, opportunity cost adjusted, and numerically compatible; they all can be linked or merged programmatically in business planning models to provide multi-national and multi-level analysis. The report databases are designed to give a common definition, unit of measure and quantification of markets in over 200 countries. These reports rely on data collection at various levels of the product flow; this effectively means, the producer, the distribution channels and the end user or consumers. This data is then correlated with any national and international statistical data produced by official agencies. Unfortunately, product flow data gathering in some countries is difficult, and furthermore the official statistical data is both inaccurate and sparse. In such circumstances, in some countries, we have to flag a Data Caveat as a warning. Choice of Base Reference Country As report databases are generated specifically for each client order, the client can select which Base Country the database uses. The choice of a Base Country is important as it puts the database into the client’s own perspective. This is important, for example, in respect of Purchasing Parity data or the results of End User Survey data where the world data is presented from the relative position of the Base Country. Where a client does not specify a Base Reference country, the database is generated with the Base Reference country being the same country as the client. 11 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report Market Research Contents Please also see the Notes to the contents: Notes Within each heading there are links with detailed descriptions and explanation of the contents; these can be opened when the link is clicked.

For NAICS / SIC coded reports and databases, the report structures, datasets, field names, et al, are an analogue of U.S. Department of Commerce databases, and the U.S. Census databases, are designed to provide an analogue of U.S. Census data, but in a worldwide context.

measure and quantification of markets in over 200 countries. These reports rely on data collection at various levels of the product flow; this effectively means, the producer, the distribution channels and the end user or consumers. This data is then correlated with any national and international statistical data produced by official agencies. Unfortunately, product flow data gathering in some countries is difficult, and furthermore the official statistical data is both inaccurate and sparse. In such circumstances, in some countries, we have to flag a Data Caveat as a warning. What this means is that in some countries the data is not sufficiently verifiable for statistical purposes and in those cases the data may not be presented.

Data Manuals Document Templates Help files Manuals Templates Microsoft Utilities OpenOffice Business Plan Images Reference files US Census Data Tools Because all DataGroup and Data Institute database are directly compatible with U.S. Government databases (especially the Department of Commerce, US census, NIST, Treasury, et al) it is sometimes useful for users to use US Government data handling tools to manage not only US Government data, but also the data provided by DataGroup and Data Institute. Alternatively, if you are already using this US Government software you can simply access the DataGroup and Data Institute databases with the same software. In generate DataGroup and Data Institute databases use the same database parameters, structures and field names as those found in US Government databases, and thus uses can correlate and query databases without undue difficulty. 10.

The main benefit of these Resource Webs is that the data is available to all the client’s staff and professional advisors wherever they may be, and also when data is updated or new data is added then there is a common and know point of access for that data. Resource Webs are maintained for the use of the client for a period of 12 months from the data of the last data addition or update to that site. These dedicated web sites are provided as part of the After-Sales Service. http://www.datagroup.org/about-resource-webs.html For a more detailed view of a typical Resource Web: http://www.eni-italy.info produced for ENI, the Italian Oil group 24 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report This Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines Report is an Entry Level product As an entry level product the narrative is necessarily illustrative in its terminology and seeks to provide a basic degree of business logic and theory which indicates the rational applied in the forecasting and modelling methodology. First time users should read the Database Introduction as well as the Notes and Definitions links found in each Chapter. There are subtle statistical nuances to some of the spreadsheets and databases which will help the user to fine-tune their models and forecasts to obtain maximum effect and greater accuracy. The database flow chart and database description should be consulted when applying statistical and modelling software. Data Product levels Because of the sheer volume of data potentially available from DataGroup it has been necessary to create a number of product levels which can provide clients with as little or as much data as one needs. Clients can upgrade their Product level if required. Entry level Entry level products provide the most basic degree of information supplied by DataGroup. This product can be used to build upon for various business forecasting and planning application. Typically for a World Report this level will produce a database and spreadsheet count of over 9,000 record sets. Each record, if converted into graphs, will itself produce between 1 to 300 graphs. Corporate Modelling level The Corporate level modelling products provide the tools and information for medium and long term corporate forecasting and planning. These products are bespoke and are specific to the client company in question. Typically this level will produce a count of over 24,000 record sets. Econometric Modelling level The Econometric level modelling products provide the tools and information for industry level, national, and international medium and long term forecasting and planning. These products are bespoke and are specific to the industry and/or geographic reach of the client company in question. Typically this level will produce a database and spreadsheet count of over 39,000 record sets. Presentation level The Presentation level products provide the information sought by a client company is a graphical or audio-visual format which is bespoke for the particular needs and applications of the client. Real Time Support The After-Sales Service can offer client Real-Time Support. This usually involves using a software utility called TeamViewer (an installation program can be found in the Toolkit on your DVD or Hard Disk Drive) which allows the After-Sales Service support staff to directly link to the client’s computer and work with the users in real time. 25 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report Research & Survey Methodology Analysis Some client may wish to understand the statistical and methodological basis of the specific research conducted and this can be provided as part of the After-Sales Service.

The After-Sales Service is a stand-alone unit which is not connected to any particular Distributor, Reseller or Retailer. The support is provided on a contractual basis to Account Holders; and on an Ad Hoc basis to retail and non-account users. Database specificity The After-Sales Service can only provide support for the specific database(s) licenced to the user. We cannot generally provide data from unrelated databases, unless there is a specific agreement for this. Costs The current cost is £75 per hour; this includes all researchers / computer / database access costs. This costing is based on work which is scheduled at off-peak times. Delivery We normally seek to fulfil orders in 7-14 days. For more urgent After-Sales Service work the costs depend on the client’s time frame and the availability of our researchers. Telephone Support Account Holders receive telephone support via their Account Manager. We are unable to offer telephone support to Ad Hoc or retail clients unless there is a specific agreement for this. Online Support Account Holders receive online support via their Account Manager. We are able to offer online support to Ad Hoc or retail clients by specific agreement for this. The client will need to install the TeamViewer software on their own computer to allow online assistance. Quotations Client will usually be provided with a formal proposal and quotation for After-Sales Service work. This will underline the work which is to be provided and the cost of that work. 29 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report How to order After-Sales Services The After-Sales Service is most effective if users plan their orders sequentially, i.e. extract the basic data which will then lead to more complex data or correlations. This also helps to reduce costs as the use of automated data processing and standard data formats are always less expensive to produce than Ad Hoc work. What this means is that it is frequently less expensive to obtain a World or Regional report or database rather than separate country data. Modular research Once the After-Sales Service understands the general data requirements they will send the Client a Modular Proposal as a Word document. The Client can then select the Parts required, and amend or modify the information objectives. To delete unwanted elements Clients strikeout those items: Strikeout unwanted items To insert information objectives Clients do so in Red Once the After-Sales Service have a final specification, we will then produce a static PDF document which will form the basis of the contract.

Fixed Assets per Employee Capital Employed per Employee Total Assets per Employee Value of Average Investment / Employee Value Added per Employee NB: These above tables use standard Accounting terms, as used by accountants and financial managers. The Balance Sheet formats are used by accountants when they produce management accounts for companies and when they audit company financial results. The Balance Sheets are not the same as the Cashflow projections. Balance sheets are done on an Annual basis and Cashflow projections are done on a Monthly basis. These documents are usually produced as interactive/dynamic Excel sheets, thus if one set of data is changed (for example Payroll Costs) then this automatically changes the other data in the Balance Sheet or Cashflow projection. Background to the Derived Financial calculations There is a radical difference between the published financial data of companies and the Derived Financial calculations shown in these reports. Whereas a company’s published financial data may rely on the auditor’s opinion that it is a fair representation of that company’s financial situation, it may not reflect the actual financial circumstances of that company. This is especially critical when evaluating Net Assets or Shareholders Funds. Essentially the Shareholders Funds are what assets would be realisable if the company was liquidated. These are the Liquidated Net Assets of the enterprise. The software used to produce these calculations search for the realisable assets of the company. Those realisable assets tend to be found as Stock and Inventory (at the current product level valuation), and other Tangible Assets like the actual or current market value of owned Property. Intangible Assets like intellectual property rights, or goodwill, are only valuable where market conditions are buoyant and optimistic, and allow for the on-going exploitation of such assets. Certain items, like leased property holdings, are assets during buoyant market conditions in market specific locations; however in depressed market conditions or depressed market locations, these items are a liability because the company are tied to unprofitable locations and are constrained by the terms of the property leases, and other costs. In many jurisdictions there will be liabilities due to national and local taxes and duties, outstanding social security contributions, and redundancy liabilities. Where a company is trading in difficult market conditions these items should be considered as liabilities chargeable against Shareholder Funds. The Derived Financial calculations pay particular attention to the off balance sheet activities of the company, and the legal context to those activities. In addition assets which have been mortgaged or pledged or against which there is a charge cannot be regarded as assets; and a calculation must be made in relation to the actual market value of the assets set off against the amount of the charge. In many instances this produces a negative figure, and this is listed as a net liability and deducted from the Net Assets figure. 41 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report 5.

Database Compatibility The increased use of Database Management Systems, Business Planning and Control Systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, Management Information Systems, and other tools amongst management professionals has produced a critical need for the harmonisation of data across various software applications and systems platforms. The After-Sales Service ensures that its output, where required, will be fully compatible with DataGroup / Data Institute products and databases. For this reason all the databases and reports provided use harmonised database and data sets; thereby users can obtain any database from any of the publishers, for any of their brands, with the assurance that these databases are fully compatible and can be used in conjunction with one another and the various platforms, operating systems and software. The DataGroup Stiftung has, since 2007, undertaken the harmonisation and convergence of the database specifications and definitions of the various database providers. This is to allow users a uniform and standardised reference to use with their planning and forecasting; and to allow crossdatabase functionality. The data sets, modules and standards shown are now fully harmonised and standardised to allow data and software interflow and cross-platform usage of the databases. Users may obtain older data dictionaries and standards, and/or data sets and data dictionaries for their own national standards. The standard product and market definitions have been harmonised and are provided (in the standard database products supplied), often as the NAICS classifications. Users wishing to remain with the previous SIC classifications may obtain these databases under that classification system. Users requiring other (U.N., European, Japanese, et cetera) classification definitions and norms may obtain those as necessary. Accounting standards are also harmonised according to the U.S. regulatory norms; however other norms are available. Data dictionary and data definition bridges and converters are available to allow users to update or standardise their databases. The DataGroup Stiftung has undertaken to maintain support for the older data dictionary standards and definitions until 2018; however users are urged to update at their earliest convenience. Database Flowchart + Configuration The flowchart provides the minimum configuration for the databases provided by the DataGroup / Data Institute publishers and brands. All the data, time and record sets of these databases are fully compatible. http://www.datagroup.org/BASE_FOLDERS/CHAPTER_HTM/Ch_dg_dataflow.htm The output provided by the After-Sales Service will respect the standard data configuration to ensure compatibility. 43 Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesale Lines World Report About DataGroup DataGroup was formed in 1974 by a group of management consultants and information technology specialists whom had previous worked with, amongst other organisations, the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bank of America, Chase Econometrics, The Marketing Strategies Institute, the OECD in Paris, and MITI in Tokyo.
