Go Now and review your listing on the newly-launched IAM Mobility Exchange
The IAM Mobility Exchange is now operational and ready for you to use. This tool transforms IAM's Membership Directory into the single most comprehensive directory of your fellow IAM Members, your mobility industry service partners, and their suppliers. Beyond the ability to search and filter to locate the best possible match for your requirements, IAM's Mobility Exchange offers you - an IAM member - the ability to Validate your listing and present your hard-earned capabilities and quality credentials in a way that will differentiate your company for a positive market advantage.
As a member of IAM, your company is already listed; go now to Mobility Exchange to review your listing and update it so that all members can find your company on the industry's new premier online marketplace. If you are new to IAM's Mobility Exchange and you are currently associated with an IAM Member company, you may activate your user rights by searching for your company and clicking the orange "Claim My Business" button next to your company name on the search results page. Please fill out the data fields in the online form that pops up so we can link you to your company in Mobility Exchange and provide you with login credentials. We ask for your patience as we must verify your current association with your company which may take up to 24 hours. The registration is free and there are no fees to use IAM's Mobility Exchange.

If you are attending this year's IAM Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California, please make note of the two education sessions that will feature Mobility Exchange. The first session, "One Exchange - Infinite Connections," is for all attendees and takes place on Wednesday, October 11, from 9:00am-10:00am. The second session is the IAM Logistics Network Business Session, also on Wednesday, October 11, from 4:30pm-6:00pm. Mobility Exchange will also have a continuous presence in IAM World, located in the Expo Hall, where you can ask questions and take a hands-on tour of Mobility Exchange.
I have an extreme issue with NON IAM Members being displayed on IAM affiliated web site. We pay annual membership to be part of the IAM network & being part of the member directory when IAM agents are looking for an agent in a particular city. Offering the ability to click a link for Non IAM Members in our neighbourhood is Fundamentally WRONG. It diminishes the value of our membership and validates the Non IAM service providers a free directory listing.
I very strongly feel IAM should remove that link from the IAM directory.
I would like to hear feedback from IAM membership on this issue.
On the positive side, I very much like all the other features, look and feel of the new IAM member directory. It is very well done!

Thank you Len for testing out the new site and providing your comments! We're glad you like many of the features included in Mobility Exchange.
As far as your critique, it is a reasonable one and was something we and the IAM Executive Committee thought long and hard about when making this decision. From a broad perspective, it is critical to understand that this is already happening on the internet and we have no control over it. Anybody can do a google search and find a service provider regardless of their quality or if they're an IAM Member. This search is conducted without knowledge about IAM and without a grasp of the concept of industry standards.
Through our exclusive agreement with Mobility Exchange, IAM is providing you and your fellow members with a tool that allows the Association to set the rules by how these companies are treated and establishes a pathway to bring these non-IAM Members into the Association to ensure they abide by our principles and standards, as well as ensuring they are covered under the RPP.
Most importantly, if IAM does not provide this service, another entity will and it will likely be a "for-profit" service that will want to monetize your company's data at every turn without giving you any voice in how that service is used or priced. As an IAM Member, you do have a voice in the course and direction of the Association.
It is important to remember that your listing has been improved and enhanced just by transitioning from the old directory to Mobility Exchange. The ability to search and filter to find the right service provider for Mackie Moving Systems or for someone to find your company has not just been improved, it has been fundamentally enhanced through the addition of geo-location search and predictive search results.
To preserve the preferences for IAM Members, every set of search results presents by default only IAM Members. If a user is not satisfied with that search, they have the option to click further to see all service providers. As a result, IAM members are much more likely to be selected as users are far less likely to click that button when they already have a number of service providers available from their initial search. Furthermore, the validation service IAM is offering through Mobility Exchange is priced much more competitively for IAM Members than non-IAM Members. In fact, if you are an IAM Governing Member or ILN Member, you can validate your company's listing at no additional charge.
More to the point, we believe we are providing a tool for members to make decisions with their businesses. Although IAM is in over 170 different countries, we do not have members in all 200+ countries around the world. This feature provides you with the ability to potentially find a service provider in the event that you cannot find one amongst the IAM Membership, all within the framework of IAM's online tool.
In addition, this feature will allow IAM Members to establish relationships with service providers who can augment the capacity of their business. By permitting access to non-IAM Members who can provide services like antique restoration, mold remediation, school search, etc., we can dramatically expand the range of services your company offers your clients by connecting you directly with service providers rather than middle-men who take the profit without doing any of the work.I hope this response is effective in providing a glimpse into why we made this decision and how we feel it will benefit Mackie Moving Systems and all of your fellow IAM Members.
I feel the inclusion of NON-IAM on the IAM members directory is and can be misleading for people customers not to mention such companies will also want to mislead the customers by telling them they can find their listing on IAM website, or taking a screenshot of the listing on IAM website, a visitor may or may not actually look at IAM and non IAM members tab and easily get misled .Yes the names can be googled, but by hosting their details on the IAM site it is almost regulating them without they actually being a member
That's my personal view of this
