BAPCo was founded to foster the creation of meaningful benchmarks in an applications environment. Companies interested in joining the consortium are required to fill out an Application + BAPCo Membership Agreement which will be reviewed by BAPCo’s Board of Directors.

BAPCo benchmarks are based on software packages commonly found in retail computer software stores.
