ASHI adds new tool to track customers’ interest in ASHI Inspectors
In June, ASHI activated a new tool to help Members and Candidates with logo use monitor the number of times Web users are finding them in ASHI’s “Find an Inspector” search mechanism.
To view the monitor, ASHI Members and Candidates with logo use log into the Membership Extranet (using their membership number and password.) At the bottom of the record will be a number, viewable only by the ASHI Inspector, that shows the number of times his or her name, company name, Web site and phone number have been viewed because of affiliation with ASHI. ASHI has been tracking this information since January 2005, and while not all of the views are from potential customers, many of them are. The counter is activated when the first person views the inspector’s information using any of the “Find an Inspector” search methods.
Metro areas for Find an Inspector search function updated
Maryland and Washington, D.C. area, Iowa, and Western New York are the most recently updated areas. ASHI Inspectors are invited to make suggestions for adding new metro search categories or changing existing ones, but the chapter president must approve the request form before it’s sent to HQ.
