Cost-Savings Benefits for Retail Members:
- Freight & Shipping Discounts.
Save up to 29 percent on select Fed Ex services and up to 64 percent on
less-than-truckload freight. The average MRAA member who uses this
service, through PartnerShip®, saves $304 annually, a total that is more
than the cost of MRAA membership. Canadian Retail Members can take advantage of this benefit as long as the business with the billing address is located within the United States.
- Profit Production Package.
This program offers you an evaluation and analysis of your financials
and access to an online profit production workshop and budgeting tool,
along with the know-how on building an annual profit plan at the total
company level. All at a members-only rate that is more than $1,000 less
than what non-members pay.
- Online Dashboards.
Monitor your financial performance on an ongoing basis through Spader
Business Management's True® dashboards, and you'll also receive key
financial statement reporting, a look beyond the statements to an
anticipated year-end forecast, flagged numbers based on performance and
more. MRAA members save 50 percent off of the set-up fee.
- Customer Satisfaction Tools.
Any dealership that is serious about profitability and growth knows
that a focus on the voice of the customer is critical to success.
Through a revamped program with long-time partner Customer Service
Intelligence, the MRAA Rewards program bundles, at a 40-percent
discount, the essential tools you'll need to find that success.
- Marketing Solutions.
To gain the exposure you need to make an impact on your market, you
need end-to-end marketing solutions. You can take it from us that
Lighthouse Media Solutions can deliver you results through their
marketing expertise: print, online, social, video and much, much more.
- Annual Conference.
According to a recent survey, the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo
is the benefit most highly valued by MRAA's members. Those members who
register for the annual event save $75 off of the regular rate (per
employee) to attend this event. Join 1,000 of your industry colleagues
and get a first-class education at this year's MDCE!
- Regional Conferences.
In partnership with Dominion Marine Media, the MRAA is delivering
high-quality content in a series of one-day educational events called
the Norman-Spencer Marine Marine Retail University, to be held
regionally around the country. Dominion Marine Media is supplementing
the cost for MRAA members to attend these events.
The MRAA offers three educational scholarship opportunities for MRAA
members to attend either the American Boat & Yacht Council training
and certification courses; Spader Business Management's Total Management
Workshop; or technical training through MRAA's technical scholarship.
- Marine Dealer Technologies. MRAA members are now entitled to discounts on both initial brand setup and model year and monthly update fees for Marine Dealer Technologies’ Digitial Showroom Manager, an interactive, cloud-based tool accessible via the internet that dealerships can use to configure custom retail quotes, control margins, complete sales and customer financing agreements and monitor inventory in a simple, timely and professional manner, all while never leaving the customer’s side. The Digital Showroom Manager assists dealers by simplifying their margin control and inventory management process, both of which increase profits and boost the dealership’s bottom line
