How much time do you spend in researching a product before you buy? Depending on the expense and the complexity of the product, it could be as little as a few minutes to several hours. That’s where we of the IDEA can help. Our Board is composed of seven members who possess a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience in scrutinizing products and services you might need in your practice. In addition, we also possess both the knowledge and experience of members who serve in similar roles in other states as well as those of the ADA. That interpolates into a tremendous wealth of knowledge from which you can benefit!
Before a product receives the IDEA “thumbs up”, it is presented to our Board for review. We then check its viability and acceptance amongst our Board as well as in other states and the ADA. We then negotiate the best rates for the product or service. It is then and only then that we take a vote to endorse a given product or service.
If you believe there is purchasing power in numbers interested, you have grasped the concept of “people power” and how it can drive quality and value in your purchases. In other words, the IDEA is doing the homework for you so that you can spend you treasured time in more productive ways. Not only do we research the products for you, but we also negotiate prices and deals that benefit you in your purchases.
What about quality assurance? If you were a sales person, how much effort are you going to spend in pleasing a single customer? Now, given that same scenario, how much effort are you going to spend if that customer is one among a thousand in a purchasing club? Needless to say, purchasing power has a load of benefits!
Why not give us a try? We have a large spread of IDEA and ADA Endorsed Products that might surprise you! Who knows, you might even have a little time and money left over for a round of golf?
Check us out on the IDA Website to find the products that are right for you. The IDEA is the other arm of the Tripartite Membership that is lifting you up so you can reach your goals over the crowd around you!
