NASMM's First Deep Data Dig Is Here! The NASMM Data Exchange Initiative Survey!
The Data Exchange Task Force (DETF) was commissioned last fall by the NASMM Board of Directors to drill deeper into the challenges and successes of Senior Move Management companies. This week, all Primary Contacts of NASMM Provisional and General Members received the survey, via email from Express Evaluations — a third party survey development company.

With your cooperation, we hope to obtain real stats — quantifiable information including size, scope, pricing, sales volume, staff size, staff status (employee versus independent contractor) and staff salaries. This data is critical information each NASMM member needs to continue to grow, and essential information for NASMM to promote our industry.

About the survey:

  • Express Evaluations will conduct this survey on NASMM's behalf.
  • For this survey to produce meaningful results, we need the participation of every member - regardless of the size and scope of your business.
  • If you were not in business in 2015 or do not have revenue/sales to report for 2015, you should still complete the survey. The survey allows for these responses.
  • Your responses to this survey are completely confidential.
  • The Data Exchange Task Force (DETF), the NASMM Board, and the NASMM Staff will NOT have access to individual responses.
  • Your company will be identified by a unique code that is attached to your email address, and is known only to Express Evaluations.
  • Only those NASMM members who complete the survey will be provided with the survey results.
