The Cost of Doing Business Survey

The Cost of Doing Business Survey is a thorough report containing exclusive information that cant be found anywhere else. Known as the CODB, our report provides a wealth of meticulously compiled data geared toward industry dealers. Dealers can use the tools on our convenient online platform to measure their metrics against other dealers using benchmarks such as region, sales volume and line of business. The CODB survey provides an effective way for dealers to assess their own practices and determine how they stack up against the competition. 

Members who contribute to the CODB survey by providing feedback and information receive a free copy of the compiled report. All data is completely confidential and given on an anonymous basis in order to protect every individual and companys information. This privacy extends to our team, since Associated Equipment Distributors are not able to access your business’s data. 

Distributor Compensation Survey

Associated Equipment Distributors offers another invaluable resource in the form of our Cross-Industry Compensation and Benefits Study. This report includes information regarding compensation levels and benefits practices across your industry. Our members can use this survey to better gauge how their companys practices compare to other distributors and wholesalers and make relevant changes as necessary. 

With more than 1,000 participating organizations representing over 20 distributor and wholesaler associations, the Distributor Compensation Survey is a vital opportunity to understand your companys standing in more detail than ever.
