The Automotive Aftermarket E-Learning Centre has developed detailed statistics for independent repair facilities, filling a long sought after need. After two years of development and testing, AAEC can now offer companies and associations within the automotive aftermarket industry, the capabilities of collecting customized industry specific information from their customers or members in a secure environment, on-line, over the Internet on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. Detailed, averaged reports are then prepared to allow their customer/members to evaluate and compare their own business position against their peers in their marketplace. Among the features are that survey questions can be customized, and set up in modules to allow timely submission of answers. Modules can be saved individually or submitted at the participants’ discretion. The ease of gather statistical data can benefit businesses by establishing the amount of business the company has with its customers, and can be specific to regions and locales. The on-going industry-specific information provides real benchmarks for the customer/members to measure their business with.
