ImageProviding value to the membership is the key to any trade association’s success.  From a typical member’s perspective, joining an association and maintaining one’s membership is highly dependent upon the return on their membership dues investment.

IDA offers an extensive array of valuable member programs.  This section provides information on and access to each one.  By putting these programs to work for your company, you’ll not only enjoy a higher degree of management excellence, but also increase your efficiency, proficiency, and profitability.

Programs and Services:



Transworld Systems Inc
Profit Recovery System


Transworld Systems Inc and the IDA have partnered together to provide IDA Members with the resources they need to collect past due accounts.

The Profit Recovery concept is a giant step forward for a very conservative industry. If you have delinquent or slow paying accounts in your business, it would certainly make sense to look into this progressive way of managing debt.

For more information, contact Gary Loring, IDA's account executive, by email, phone 800-705-8682, schedule a web meeting, or schedule a call.

Dealer FIT™ Program
Indispensable Financial Information for Door Dealers 

The 2013 Dealer-FIT Survey is Now Online!

Dear IDA Dealer Member,

It is even easier than ever to participate in Dealer FIT with our online survey.

WHY PARTICIPATE? The Dealer-FIT Survey is an invaluable tool for comparing your firm with averages of participating firms as well as a great tool for Business Planning Sessions.



The Dealer-FIT Survey, sponsored by IDA is a "Cost of Doing Business" study specific to the garage door dealership industry.

By participating, you will receive a written synopsis of the survey along with a CD disc with all of the survey findings and definitions. So for 20 minutes of your time you can have this valuable report for FREE. Some of the information included:

  • dollars of sales per truck
  • dollars of sales per field installer or service person
  • dollars of sales per sales person
  • amount of money spent on advertising, websites, rent, healthcare, workman's comp and many other expenses

The survey separates all participating firms by sales size and also separates firms by type of sales size for firms primarily doing residential work or primarily commercial work.

We look forward to your participation in this IDA Dealer Member Service.
