Other Investor Benefits

AEDC can provide research project management and analysis
Demographic & Local Market Analysis

Opening a new location, hiring additional staff, offering new products? These are some of the most critical choices you’ll have to make for your business. While no alternative is without risk, quality information to guide your decision-making process helps reduce that risk and will give you the confidence to make your next move.

From U.S. Census data to local election statistics, there are numerous sources of valuable information available to inform your decision. Our staff will work with you to find the right information and deliver it in easy to understand reports. Let us do the heavy lifting and free you to run your business with the best data available.

Survey Administration

Surveys are an effective way to gain insight from your customers, collect objective information and track how attitudes and behaviors change over time. AEDC has the resources and experience to design, market and analyze surveys to get you the critical information you need.

Indicator Research & Development

Is your project doing what it set out to accomplish? Does your staff know what “success” looks like? Indicators to monitor development and track progress are a critical tool for management, but are often overlooked. Consulting with AEDC to create results based accountability indicators for your business will help keep your business focused on what matters most to you.

Industry Best Practices Research

Whatever issues you’re dealing with in your business, chances are, someone has already had to face them and come up with a solution. AEDC can help you avoid having to reinvent the wheel and learn from other’s experiences. We’ll do the research and give you a concise report on the options that have worked for others, enabling you to choose what will work best for you.
