Spanish term or phrase: coeficiente de eficiencia
A Spanish savings institution is looking for a computer SW + HW system they call an "aplicativo financiero" to support its commercial and business banking activities in a new key office in America. More specific context: in its tender specifications, the institution asks the potential supplier to specify whether his proposed solution offers the "posibilidad de realizar cálculos de gestión: ROE, ROA, coeficiente de eficiencia, índice de morosidad."

I propose "efficiency ratio." Can someone correct that and explain briefly what the "coeficiente de eficiencia" measures?

"Efficiency coefficient" is the translation I used, thanks to you and Google. I subsequently checked Google for another
term, and quickly found a great bilingual definition on a marketing consultancy site. I've got Google bookmarked,
and will definitely return for more term searches.

efficiency ratio


Explanation:
The web page belows defines two kinds of efficiency ratio for banks, which is probably relevant to your savings institution context. However, there are many kinds of efficiency ratios, when it comes down to it. Basically the generic variety measures the 'operating margin', which broadly speaking would be the difference between what you sell in $ and what it cost in $ to make that quantity. That said, accountants probably define the costs to be inc/excluded differently.

You won't go wrong simply translating as 'efficiency ratio'
Good luck.
