(Showing 5 of 5)

Ability Members Group can help you grow your home medical equipment business. Consider what becoming a member can do for you.

We leverage the collective buying power of seasoned Home Medical Equipment (HME) dealers across Canada and provide:

  • Long term price protection
  • Long term protection in access and supply

But Ability Members Group is so much more than just buying power:

  • its about peer support from other industry knowledgeable members
  • its about regular Webinars with key industry suppliers and on topics of interest to all
  • its members have access to an exclusive “Members Only” Intranet and a private Facebook Group
  • membership means you have a voice, with member meetings twice annually; one in conjunction with an Annual Member Conference
  • RFP Assistance: All major Request for Proposal and government bid quotations are posted on a Canada wide computer system called MERX. Ability Members is a subscriber to MERX a public and private source of information related to commercial opportunities in the Canadian Marketplace.

How does Ability Members Group Differ from our Competitors?

  1. Membership is Simple:
  2. Members pay monthly fees based on annual sales and nominally share volume rebates. The membership agreement, in clear, concise and easily understandable English, describes each party’s obligation in the relationship (Ability Members Group, its Members, and the Suppliers)
  3. We’re Completely Transparent:
What you see is what you get. Many competitors have one pricing arrangement with each supplier and a completely different one with their members. Our pricing, discounts and terms are negotiated with suppliers and passed directly to our members
  4. Highly Competitive Costs:
Cost of membership is clearly defined and is the most competitive in the marketplace. We have just four sales categories and each category’s fees are fixed. We also charge you just one monthly membership fee, even if you operate more than one location
  5. Canadian Owned and Managed:
Many of our competitors have their head offices located in the United States

Who are Our Designated Suppliers?

As a member, you’ll have access to designated suppliers that are representative of the key manufacturers in the HME industry. These listings are readily available to serious prospective members. Our contracts include pricing, discounts, terms and rebates.

What is Ability Members Group strategy for growth?

Our priorities are simple: look after our existing membership while constantly leveraging buying power by recruiting new members to expand our power and reach. Our success will be measured in terms of membership growth, increased sales and profitability of each member, and about introducing enhanced services and group benefits.
