BOCA GRANDE, Fla. – MRAA Rewards members will have access to additional benefits through an expanded partnership between the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Spader Business Management.
The new relationship between the two groups will provide MRAA Rewards members with discounted pricing on two of Spader Business Management’s new products: Profit Production Tools & Resources and its TRUE* Online Dashboards.
The Profit Production Tools & Resources provide dealers with an analysis of their financial statements, assistance building a stronger chart of accounts and access to an online workshop and budgeting tool, among other things, the MRAA said in a release.
TRUE* Online Dashboards provide dealers with ongoing analysis of results, such as key financial statement reporting, a forecasting system, financial guidelines and a flagging system to alert dealers when they stray from their guidelines.
The Profit Production Tools & Resources will be available to MRAA Rewards members for $1,380, $1,000 off the market value of the package. Spader will be offering 50 percent off the setup fee for TRUE* Online Dashboards, $187.50 for electronic setup and $375 for a manual setup.
“Our partnership with MRAA has been extremely rewarding for more than 20 years now,” John Spader, president of Spader Business Management, said in a statement. “We’re happy to be expanding that relationship and to be able to offer these tools at a discounted rate to MRAA members because we know and we’ve heard from our dealers that today’s economy makes access to these resources more critical than ever before.”
