In the latest Altus White Paper “Giving your platform wings”, we revisit a theme we first explored a few years ago – platform profitability. The overall picture is a little healthier this time around, but it’s still a mixed bag and there remains plenty of room for improvement.

The paper draws on our wide experience across the platform sector to highlight some common areas of operational inefficiency, with real figures to show what is possible, and some guidance on the kinds of technology that can help.

We look beyond Operations too, at the costs of the rest of a platform business and the drag these can have on profitability – again providing figures from our platform benchmark, to add valuable data points for platforms to compare themselves against.
