During the fall of 2015, the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) surveyed their membership to gather data about how electrical distributors use technology.

96% of the distributors surveyed indicated that data in their business system being accurate and up to date was one of the most critical issues as it related to technology.

DATAgility partnered with NAED to offer a Data Scorecarding program tailored to the electrical industry.
