使用 Frontier Analyst 可以增加生產效能的獲利，它提供您了解如何管理您的營業單位和改進效能，Frontier Analyst 使用一種被稱為 “資料包絡分析” (Data Envelopment Analysis, DEA) 的方法，有時被稱為比較性能的評價或同儕本位分析(peer based analysis)，去分析有相似功能商業單位的相對性能，而非只是單純的財物標準分析。
Frontier Analyst 現今運用在很多營業機構裡，範圍從小型企業到跨國際企業，包含零售商、總經銷商、銀行、公家機關和醫療診所等等以商業為基礎的企業。工作效率評分表合適項目的分數和規模效益才會展現出來。但這只是一個開端，簡單的點選按鈕，你可以展現出更多有用且易於解釋的應用。你可以不同的方式解決評分表，並用不同分段的數據。下一個展現的分佈圖顯示效率範圍。
